Unadoptable animals find a home at Zeb’s Wish

As part of its support for Portland Radio Project, Premier Mortgage Resources has chosen Zeb’s Wish Equine Sanctuary for this week’s nonprofit spotlight on Community Voices.

Zeb’s Wish Equine Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation space in Sandy, OR for abused horses, donkeys and mules. Named after its first rescue, Zebediah, the sanctuary creates a healing space for both the animals and their human caretakers.

After rescuing Zebediah fourteen years ago, the sanctuary has provided a home for 17 other animals in need. Many of them endured starvation, abuse and abandonment before finding their homes at Zeb’s Wish. Because of these inhumane conditions, the animals have developed permanent needs that deem them unadoptable. However, with special care that addresses their age related health challenges, the animals can have happy and healthy lives.

At Zeb’s Wish, animals benefit from integrated health care, combining traditional and homeopathic veterinary practices with natural hoof care, Reiki energy work and chiropractic and massage therapies. To give their animals the best combination of care possible, the sanctuary is conscious in taking in only who they can handle.

Unlike many rescue, rehabilitation and adoption programs, the sanctuary’s animals live at Zeb’s Wish through the ends of their lives. The sanctuary relies on the generosity of donors to aid in the financial challenges that accompany the cost of long-term care.

Zeb’s Wish offers assisted learning programs and classes, field trips, retreats and volunteer opportunities for kids and adults. To schedule a visit to their space in Sandy, email Zeb’s at zebswithsanctuary@gmail.com.

Throughout the week we’ll be talking with Zeb’s Wish over the air as a part of our award-winning Community Voices series. Check back throughout the week to find these interviews below.
