Save Your Ass Longear Rescue

As a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization the money needed for the care and upkeep of the animals in the rescue comes from donations, sales of merchandise, as well as adoption fees. In spite of that fact we are lowering our adoption fees for now to try to help make adopting a donkey or mule a bit more affordable.

The poor economy has affected us all. We only have eight animals at a time in the rescue. This ensures every animal getting the individual care and attention it deserves. Every time an animal goes to itís new home, that makes room for another to come in. Hopefully the move to lower our adoption fees a bit will help more people be able to welcome a long ear into their lives.

New adoption fees are:
Minis 600. Pairs: 1,000.00
Standards: 500. Pairs: 750.00
Mammoths and mules: Adoption fee will vary depending on training level of animal.

Please contact us if you are interested in any of these long ears.

Mister Mann

Mister Mann: Mister is a sweet, lovable hunk of Belgian mule. He is in his mid twenties and in excellent health. He has not been trained to go under saddle, but has had people on his back and is fine with that, so I don't think it would take too much to get him going under saddle. He is approximately 16hh. He is great for the vet and the farrier. He loves to be loved upon and groomed and will stand forever to have his big ole ears scratched. He is a former Amish mule so I do believe he drives. He can be a bit pushy with other equines until he gets to know them.

He is utd on rabies and tetanus and has a negative coggins.

Adoption fee: $750.00

Willow - Adoption pending!

Every now and then an animal comes into the rescue and for me, it's love at first sight. Willow is one of those animals. This mule is not only beautiful, but quiet, and sweet, and has the softest eyes. She approaches in the pasture to get some love.

She is nine years old and is shedding out to a sleek, shiny dark bay color. We plan to have her evaluated under saddle in the near future, but her temperament is so laid back and gentle, I can't imagine there will be any issues in doing so.

She is utd on rabies and tetanus and has a negative coggins.

Willow: adoption fee: $850.00

Vera and Rosemary

Have you ever heard of a hinny? We have two of them who are available for adoption. A hinny is the result of breeding a male horse to a female donkey. The hinny is sterile, due to having an uneven number of chromosomes. Vera and Rosemary are both young females. They came from auction without much history. They are a perfectly matched bay pair, about 13.3hh. They will be up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccines and have a negative coggins.

Vera and Rosie are coming along nicely, although just getting them to the point they can be handled has been a very long row to hoe. Vera can now be easily caught and handled. She is very good for the farrier and loves being groomed and loved upon. Rosie is much less shy, though she still needs work. She was excellent for the farrier for her last trim. We were very proud of her brave behavior.

These animals will need to go to someone with mule experience. They still need a lot of work before they can be used in any discipline.

Adoption fee: negotiable
