HSVC Celebrates Adopt a Horse Month in May!

May is Adopt a Horse Month! The ASPCA launched this special month-long celebration to promote the numerous adoptable horses in shelters and to raise awareness about equine adoption. While we currently only have one horse available for adoption at our shelter, that doesn't mean she doesn't deserve the same amount of love! Help us celebrate Adopt a Horse Month by finding miss Wendy Nova the forever home she deserves!


A gorgeous Quarterhorse and Arabian mix, 14-year-old Wendy Nova came to the shelter in 2008 as a result of an abuse and neglect case. After being adopted out briefly, Wendy Nova was returned to the shelter in 2018 through no fault of her own after having a baby. Though she is not broke to ride, Wendy Nova has a great foundation of groundwork. She would make a great pasture horse for anyone looking for a sweet and friendly companion.

“Adopt a Horse Month supports equine rescue groups across the country working tirelessly to find safe, loving homes for the horses in their care. We also hope to raise public enthusiasm and commitment to horse adoption to the high levels we traditionally see in dog and cat adoption, so we encourage the public to not only adopt horses, but use this opportunity to raise awareness of equine adoption with their friends, family, neighbors, and social media followers,” said ASPCA president and CEO Matt Bershadker.

Over the years, Wendy Nova has become part of the HSVC family. Our staff wants nothing more than to see her go to a loving home. If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please call the Shelter at 805-646-6505 for more information and to schedule an appointment to meet her!
