We have 2 cats available for adoption. 

         

Hi, we are Tigress, Socrates, and Tessa.  Aren't we adorable?!?  Our parents are feral cats, but we aren't - we are friendly and sociable!  Okay, so we're a little shy when we first meet you, but once we get to know you we can't get enough love and attention. 

I'm Tigress (the gray tabby), and I took the longest to learn to trust people, but now I love to be scratched and petted.  I can't believe all the scratching I missed out on by being scared!

I'm Socrates (in the center), and I am friendly, loving and adventuresome.  I have a wonderful forever home now, and I am so happy. My family loves me so much, and I love them, too. I hope my sisters can find their forever homes soon, because every kitty needs a loving forever home. .

Hey, it's my turn now!  I'm Tessa!  I'm black & white, and I was the first one to figure out that people are great.  I have a calm and laid back nature, and I will make a great family pet. 

     We like our foster home, but we would really like to have a home that we can call our own.  We just turned three years old, and we would like to grow old with you.  If you cannot adopt, please consider fostering, and take us home today!

 Emmett is at a temporary foster home, so please step forward if you are able to foster or adopt Emmett.  He is a 13 year old Pony of the Americas gelding, about 14H tall.  If you are able to help, send an email to info@hopeforhorses.com or call us at (281)468-6226 or (940)368-2072.

Read what adopters have to say about their Lewisville ponies:

Shasta (formerly L1)

                                                                                

                                         Photo taken Dec. 23, 2010                Photo taken Dec. 29, 2010

Dec. 23, 2010 - "I know it�s only been a couple days, but he is doing great here!  Got the hind feet up and cleaned. He should be good to go when the farrier comes on Monday. He was so cooperative and quiet today when I was lunging him, adding weights and floppy things to the saddle, that I decided to put my 10 year old on him. He didn�t care. Walked him around and he was really quiet and relaxed. His training should come along nicely."

Dec. 29, 2010 - "My trainer is amazed how well Shasta's doing!  I can confidently put Trey on him without me riding him first or lunging him.  He's awesome!"

HHER note - 13 1/2 weeks before the jumping picture on Dec. 29th was taken, Shasta was not even halter-broke.  He is just one example of how calm and willing the ponies from Lewisville are. 

Destin (formerly L31 Shaun)

    He is just the sillyest little guy, he has so much fun running with my other horse (Charlie) they play outside all the time! Its sooo cute! :) he is learning the strings of being on a halter, and he is doing very well! :) everyone that has come over to see him fall in love with him!  Every time i open the garage, he comes running to the gate to see me! He is just the happiest pony ever! :) I love him so much.

Contessa (formerly L34)

I am thoroughly enjoying Contessa.  I am amazed at her willingness.  I already have her leading really well, and she will pick up her hooves.  She never flinched at getting brushed down and only twitched when fly sprayed.  My kids even had balloons tied to their arms trying to pet her and she still came up for them to pet her.  She likes them and comes immediately when they call her.  I have even saddled her and started to walk and trot her on a lounge line under saddle.  She is going to be an amazing pony under saddle, she is just so willing.  Had a minor run-in with fire ants today that lead to her first bath.  She did really well and even wanted to play in the water and drink from the hose.  She looks really good under saddle and acts like she has been carrying one her whole life.  It is so hard to believe that I have only had her a little over a week.  She has come so far in such a short time.

Kola (formerly L36 Brutus)

     

"The picture of M's 3 year old granddaughter feeding him were taken this past weekend.  We are so tickled that we were right about his good temperament.  ...were working to put up a windblock on part of the shelter.  Kola had to be right in the middle of everything - he even acted like he was the supervisor of the project.  He has always been very friendly and people oriented.  I'll keep y'all updated on Kola's progress, he is a delight."

Automatic Watering System Installation

   Hope for Horses Equine Rescue would like to thank all of those involved in the project of installing an automatic watering system for the horses and dogs.  It will save countless hours of labor for the rescue.  This project was made possible by the generosity of many supporters who donated the supplies and labor.  No rescue funds were spent for this project.

 ** Please send business their way and thank them for supporting Hope for Horses. **

   Thank you to those who helped in the planning stage: Rick, Fred, Jan, & Bill.

     Thank you to those who gave of their time, sweat, and energy to install the system:  Rick, Ira, Mike, Adam, & Bill.

We know what a sacrifice it was to spend hours and hours in the hot Texas sun in July.  We don't know how you did it, but we're glad you did! 

Thank you also to those who have done follow up work in further installation and maintenance: Alfredo, Pam, &  Paul.

Thank you!        Thank you!        Thank you!!
