Any animal placed by Amy's Acres Rescues is, by contract, to be returned to us if the animal is no longer wanted or needs to be rehomed. This is the same requirement stated on our puppy contracts. Having taken an animal into our lives, we feel it our responsibility to assure them of a good life to the end.

04/06: Cocoa was reported to us as being kept chained by his neck to a post in a barn. Even though he was not wanted by his owners, they still demanded $75 for us to take him out of there. After several months of healing, his neck is now in good shape. He has been adopted out to someone in a neighboring town. Each year he attends the local fair where he enjoys the attention of the children.

Duke & Lilly


06/08: We brought Lilly and Duke to Amy's Acres in coordination with our local animal control. These two horses were seized by animal control because the horses were continually getting out and going over to the neighbor's to eat grass. When animal control responded, they found the animals in a 30' diameter round pen with dry ground, with absolutely no food in sight, and saw they were breaking out trying to get the grass on the other side of the pen fence. (It was discovered the horses had lived like that for years.) It ends up their “owners” had been evicted and had left the two there. When we arrived to trailer them to our farm, we found their current keepers had surrounded the round pen with a 7' high barrier of barbed wire as an attempt to keep the horses in, but they still had no food.


Lilly, a dark brown Morgan-type (we have no photos of her), was quickly placed June '08 with a woman we know who lives near us. We couldn't ask for a better home — her new mom got with her a mini donkey friend soon after her arrival. Lilly seems to accept him as her guy friend (he thinks he's Number #1 Stud). She is sweet and “girly”.


Duke went to a new home in Dec '09, to a young girl learning horsemanship under the wing of a professional trainer.
