Rio originally came from a dude ranch in Colorado that had shut down and sent all of their livestock to slaughter. A friend of a friend pulled him straight off the slaughter truck. He kept him for several years and then Rio became ill and spent six weeks in the hospital. At that time he determined that he could not give Rio what he deserved and asked if he could relinquish him to us on the condition that he remain in sanctuary for the rest of his life. Once released from the hospital Rio finished his rehabilitation here on the ranch and has been with us ever since. Rio has become a part of our family and will live here safe, loved and adored for the rest of his life.

Roo is every bit as ornery as he is handsome! He loves to give the volunteers a run (actual running) for their money! We love his spunky personality and wouldn’t change him for the world!

Sparky was one of three miniature horses rescued from a hoarding case. He and the other two came in skinny with long un-kept hooves, matted hair, massive worms, and lice. Once rehabilitated, it was clear that Sparky had his own tale to tell and has quickly become an incredible ambassador for the rescue. He has a huge personality that shines through his every encounter. From the beach to downtown La Jolla, Sparky proudly draws a crowd wherever he goes. Sparky remains one of the coolest ambassadors anyone could ask for.

This handsome gentleman is named Titan. If you have been on a tour of the rescue or have volunteered with us, then you probably have had the pleasure of meeting him! He’s welcoming, friendly, and very intelligent! He’s also the first to alert us of anything going on around the ranch. Titan is our mascot and he will live here in sanctuary for the rest of his life. Exactly where he belongs!
