Tri-State Equine Adoption & Rescue, Inc.
Military Miss - only four years old. Read her story on our FB page.

All of TEAR's horses are adopted with a trial period.  Depending on each horses circumstances trial periods range from 30 - 60 days.  If at the end of the trial period for any reason the adopted horse is not working out the adoption fee is refunded.  It is important that both parties are relaxed and happy with the new partnership.  We understand that sometimes things just dont work out. TEAR horses may not be leased, sold, or bred.  If you have any questions about adoption or fostering, please email  Visits to the farm are by appointment only.

Buster is an extremely handsome, 16 hand, 8-9 year old QH. He came from a kill pen, where he was found to have infected wounds all over his body. He has not been treated kindly in the past. Buster was sent to a trainer for two months where he did trails almost every day for the full 60 days. The trainer said he did everything that was thrown at him. Buster needs an EXPERIENCED rider because of his mistreatment in the past. While he took to the trails well, little things like reaching back and touching his rump would startle him. He was tired after two months of training and came back to the rescue. Buster needs someone to bond with and to trust. He is such a sweet horse and loves attention. Could you be that person to offer him a loving and kind home? 

Sonny - approximately 9 years old. 13.3 or so. He was supposedly greenbroke when we got him but he was very skittish. Sonny was adopted out for three years but sadly came back when his pasture buddy had to be euthanized. Sonny is good for farrier and loads very well. He needs someone to spend time with him to bring him to his full potentional. He would be an ADORABLE riding mule! 

Smalls was found wandering with another pig that escaped capture. He was on the loose for quite sometime with his buddy. He was untouchable when he came but will now let me pet him and love on him a little. Pigs are very smart and very sensitive. Poor guy was chased for a while so was has been leary of people. Nice to see him finally coming out of his shell. This guy is very cute with his four white legs. If you would like to offer him a home please email or message the rescue. 

We constantly hear of horses in need of homes but unfortunately cannot take them all in because of space limitations and funding.  If you are looking for a horse or interested in fostering please contact us.  There are a lot of great horses out there in need!
