indianaHappy Trails Hopes to Approve Homes Immediately for Mini-horses, a Mini-donkey, and More, Arriving from Indiana

The Humane Society of Elkhart County, Indiana, has requested Happy Trails assistance with a recent farm animal rescue. Though we have little room available at the sanctuary, we have agreed to pre-approve homes for the following rescued animals and have their new families waiting for their arrival. Please help us place four mini-horses, a mini-donkey, a young pygmy goat, a young pot belly pig, and two alpacas asap!  Click here for more details on how you can help and photos of the animals.


20140617_084350_resultExciting News — Our 2014 Tour Season is Underway

In the event you missed the open house, you can still visit the sanctuary and check out our progress with the new construction (three new buildings!), meet the rescued animals, learn how you can help stop animal abuse, find out how the sanctuary operates and what services we provide. Visit our Tours page for more information.  Dress comfortably and plan to get dirty — you will most likely receive a wet, slobbery horse kiss or a soft but muddy pig nose on your shoe or a wooly sheep leaning up against your leg. Adults are $20; youth ages 6 to 17 are $10; kids ages 5 and under are free. Call the office at 330-296-5914 to schedule your tour!

Happy Trails summer fundraiser, selling concrete yard decor such as planters, bird baths, welcome signs, memorial stones and statuary, is going great!  Thanks to everyone who purchased a concrete item to help support the animals. Though we have sold a ton (probably a very accurate statement) so far, we do still have a nice selection of concrete items to choose from.  Feel free to stop by and browse through the concrete statuary display — it’s pretty impressive. Store hours are Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri and Sat from 9am to 5pm and on Sundays 11am to 4pm.  Closed on Wednesdays.  View a sampling of our selection!
