Our Mission: Providing rescue and rehabilitation, adoption or sanctuary for at-risk equines
and serving as a voice against all abuse.
From sanctuary animals to owner assistance programs, we do more than adoptions.
How to Adopt
Interested in adopting one of our horses or donkeys? Here’s what you need to know.
Volunteers at Equine Aid make a difference in the lives of formerly neglected or abused horses.
Equine Aid Horse and Donkey Rescue Receives Grant
Equine Aid Horse and Donkey Rescue in Monroe, Washington has received a $1,000.00 Emergency Medical Grant from The Petfinder Foundation. The Petfinder Foundation Emergency Medical Grant program is used to assist Petfinder members who are caring for a pet that needs special life-saving veterinary care in order to become adoptable.
The Petfinder.com Foundation assists the 12,000+animalshelters and rescue groups that post their adoptable pets on Petfinder.com. A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Petfinder Foundation helps adoption organizations find homes for the pets in their care through its Sponsor A Pet, Disaster Fund, Quality of Life and other programs. Since its founding in 2003, the Petfinder Foundation has given more than $20 million in cash and product grants to shelters and rescue groups in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Once an animal has had their health care fully updated and had their training addressed, we list them for adoption. Their skills vary from wonderful pets to good trail riding partners. Our policy on equine placement is full disclosure of what we know. We are happy to connect you with our vets and farriers if you have further questions.
Our training process for equines who have not been handled often takes many months. On the other hand, some animals just need a brief refresher course. We vary the type and amount of training time for each equine depending on their individual needs. Our policy is to work without force at each animal’s pace.
New arrivals go through at least thirty days quarantine and have their health care fully updated. In some cases their physical and mental rehabilitation takes much longer. You are encouraged and welcome to inquire about our animals’ health histories.
Some qualities make an equine less appealing to adopters (unless just the right adopter comes along, that is)! If we accept an animal that isn’t likely to be adopted, we provide for them for life. Many of our sanctuary animals can be adopted as companions, please contact us if you are interested.
