Saving Animals & Healing Hearts has a number of permanent residents. For a variety of reasons they are unable to be adopted and remain here safe and happy. The following are just some of our current residents.


Meet beautiful Aspen! She is around 16 years old and one of the most athletic horses we have ever seen! After settling in she started training, but we quickly realized she had too fractious of a mind to handle it. This beauty has amazing energy, a spitfire, and definitely thinks she is a 3 year old! We rescued Aspen over 10 years ago, and tried to adopt her out... twice. We learned she had already chosen her forever home right here, safe in sanctuary.

Ella and Jaxson

It was a warm week day somewhere around May 2017 when I received a phone call from a friend. I should know better than to answer those calls sometimes. But I answered and she said hey there is a miniature donkey at the auction going to be sold for slaughter can you save her? Well Everybody knows that was a silly question, of course my answer was going to be yes. So save her I did and she arrived terrified emaciated and shaking. As soon as her feet hit the ground I said she is pregnant. My friend said no. I said I think so and on we went to put her in a safe place. We named her Ella for Cinderella gone from rags to riches in a matter of hours. It took a while for her to trust, It took a while to even be able to lay a hand on her without her shaking. But every morning she would get fed and brushed and loved and every evening she would get fed and brushed and left. It wasn’t long before she looked forward to it instead of hiding. A vet check revealed that she was indeed pregnant but given her emaciated state the prognosis of the baby was not good. Nevertheless, Labor Day of 2017 baby Jaxson arrived, well fed, handsome and feisty . I knew immediately that he would join our therapy program to teach love, kindness, compassion and care to all who met him. Jaxson continues to make friends with everyone he meets and brings a smile to everyone’s face. He loves to cuddle and be brushed and he loves to run and play. As he grows and matures he will soon start joining Sparky and learning how to behave and become an ambassador for Saving Animals & Healing Hearts.


Harley is a 17(ish) year old quarter horse that was relinquished to SAHH. He has a congenital defect on his front leg that turns out from the shoulder and leaves him lame most of the time. He’s drop dead gorgeous and everyone wants him but due to his birth defect he will never be 100% sound and subject to an unknown fate. He will retire here at SAHH and forever be a ranch favorite giving the best horsey hugs and cuddles! Harley would love to have a sponsor!



Jack and his adorable brother Daniel have been part of the SAHH family for the past 5 years. Together they make the most adorable little cuddle bugs ever.


Jenny and Tom (Tom sadly passed away this year) were raised by a little girl who had to give them up. They were going to be listed in the free section on Craigslist right before Thanksgiving. Of course we weren’t going to let that happen! Teri brought them here to the ranch where Jenny lives safe, happy, and loved. Jenny is a little shy since Tom passed, but don’t let that fool you - once she has a second to warm up to you, she won’t let you leave! She will, literally, follow you all the way to the gate making it so hard to stop loving on her! Jenny is looking for a sponsor at $25/month.
