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.

Willow

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.

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

Ralph and Ruth

Ralph and Ruth are back in the rescue and anxiously awaiting a new home. These two are a very bonded pair. They need to be in sight of one another at all times, or they tend to panic. This means any riding, driving, leading or anything needs to be done with them together. They are back because this protocol was not followed. They are big, beautiful, friendly draft mules. They are good for the vet and the farrier and just all around nice animals. They would be great at companion animals, as they have been Amish work mules for a good part of their lives and would enjoy the job of "Pasture Puff' I'm sure.

They are up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccinations and have a negative coggins.

Ruth is the one with the lighter colored nose.

Adoption fee: $1,500 for the pair

Paloma and E.B. (Easter Bunny) - Adopted!!

Paloma, a three year old mammoth donkey and her son E.B. who was born on Easter Sunday, are ready to be adopted. I had a wonderful home lined up for them, but at the last minute I had to cancel...I just couldnt send them as far away as they were going to go. I have a huge emotional investment in these two and am hoping to place them where I will be able to visit often.

Both of these animals have wonderful temperaments. It's taken a lot of work, but Paloma is now good to have her feet trimmed. She has always been good for the vet. Little EB had his feet trimmed for the first time a few weeks ago and was a Rock Star!!! He is handled a lot! I would love to see these two go together, but that is not imperative. A gelding contract will need to be signed as well as an adoption contract for E.B.

Paloma came into the rescue as a one on the Henneke scale. It's taken a lot of care and groceries to get her to the weight she is now, which is a healthy one! She is still a bit on the thin side, but I think once EB is weaned she will catch up. She is on grain and will need to be at least until weaning.

E.B. is puppy dog friendly and would be IN your pocket if he could be. He is a typical colt, frisky and full of himself at times. Paloma is gentle, quiet and sweet as can be.

Paloma is utd on rabies, tetanus, and has a negative coggins. E.B. will be seeing the vet next week to be brought up to date.

Isaac is a an 18 year old standard donkey jack. He's a white roan color. He is a very sweet, tractable donkey. He was very good for the vet and is utd on rabies, tetanus, and has a negative coggins.

Jasmine is a five year old standard donkey jennet. She is gray dun. She, like the other donkeys she came in with, is a bit shy at first, but quickly warms up to people. I am quite sure that with one on one attention she will be an "in your pocket" type of donkey before long. She has no clue what a lead rope is for, but we are working with her and hopefully before long she will be leading like a pro.

The adoption fee for each is $400. or $750. for the pair.
