Welcome to Doxy's Horse Recovery, Inc.! Clyde, the donkey is our mascot. This 7 year old barn clown came to us dying of pneumonia and miraculously survived. He has a comforter in the barn that he pulls down every night for his blanket. Clyde represents our mission. Now that we know he can be bridled, saddled and ridden AND used in a photo shoot for a magazine, his adoption fee is $2 million dollars. Fee is firm!
Doxy's Horse Recovery is run by a couple who feel passionate about caring for unwanted horses and placing them in loving new homes. Doxy's was started when they moved to the country from a residential area so they could continue with their rescue of dachshunds. Their new location also offered them the opportunity to begin taking in and re-homing horses. The name Doxy's comes from the many dachshunds they have in addition to the horses.
Doxy's Horse Recovery, Inc.’s mission is to recover, rehabilitate and re-home horses that otherwise have no chance at life and are typically headed to facilities for slaughter and sold as meat. Some of these horses come through the auction and others are direct cast-offs from the horse racing industry. When you adopt a horse from Doxy's you are helping to save a life and to further Doxy's mission.
Doxy’s is committed to education as the only solution to the plight of horses by educating individuals and the public about proper care and responsibilities, the issues of neglect, abuse and slaughter and over-breeding.
All adoptable horses can be viewed at Equine.com, Petfinder.com and Rescue Me.org. and on Doxy's website. At least the most recent 18 adopted horses can also be viewed.
Doxy's is a 501(c)(3) public charity, retroactively approved to July 2009. We have no paid employees and an all volunteer board of officers. We believe in "Connecting Good People with Good Horses".
We encourage visitors, including small groups from scout troops, 4-H, etc., to tour Doxy's and find out about the horses and their care. If you would like to have a group visit, give us a call and we'll set up a time that's convenient for everyone.
