Adopted Or Foster Homes Needed Now For Horses

December 30, 2008


A group based in the Molino area that has spent over three years helping horses in Escambia County is now in need of foster homes for some of the animals.

Panhandle Equine Rescue is in desperate need of foster homes for rescued horses, according to PER President Diane Lowery. Many PER horses are also available now for adoption.

Some of the horses available for adoption include Eli, a 17-month old gelding; Rain Dancer, a seven-year old mare; Jasmine, an 8-year old black Mare; and Dot, a three-year old filly.

For more information on fostering or adopting a horse, call Diane at (850) 393-9793 or 587-2754.

Pictured above: Rain Dancer, a seven-year old mare, is just of the Panhandle Equine Rescue horses that needs an adopted or foster home.

    We moved out here from Washington State “Military family” and its a death trap on highway 29. I also lived in San Diego for 12 years and I think the roads out here are far worse. People drive too fast and too reckless. I love Molino but I see a lot of people driving through the town that are in way too much of a hurry. I have people even going down my road “Chestnut” going 90. My son is not allowed to play out in front of our driveway.

    I think panhandle is great for horse rescue but as far as fostering or adopting,has nothing to do with with qualitifying ,its got to do if they like you or not..we wanted to foster a horse with aloving home til one could be found and we were told the horse wasnt suited for us .what;s that got to do with taking care or the horse.our horses are very wil taken care of and a very safe place to be,so we really never did get a good reason and no one ever checked our home out.and they are begging for foster homes? something is’nt wrong here? i have called in on some horses that were being mistreated so do they think we are bad people.we love our horses,we only wanted to help.

    where did you read the requirements?

    I considered adopting one of the companion horses, just to wander the lot and graze. Then, after reading the adoption requirements, I realized I will never qualify (despite the hundreds of dollars I pour into my animals). Hopefully there are homes out there who can help out with this good cause.
