Sponsor A Mule

Despite our best training and rehabilitation efforts, some mules in our care will never be able to leave Lost Meadows because of a chronic medical condition, extreme trauma from abuse, or aggression that makes them unsuitable for adoption

They have no other alternative place to live besides Lost Meadows. Here, they always receive the same routine care as our other groups and are well looked after.

We call these mules our sanctuary mules. 

Currently, 25 out of 136 of our mules are considered sanctuary mules.

Each one could use a sponsor to help with their monthly cost of care. For $25 a month, you can sponsor the mule of your choice.

You will receive our yearly calendar, one professional photograph of your mule annually, and recognition on our website for your sponsorship.

Shown below are the sanctuary mules who need a sponsor:

Hank - SPONSORED BY AMY KOESTER

Henry - SPONSORED BY MARLA WELCH

One of these is not like the others! Henry is a senior horse who was seized from neglect along with a large group of donkeys by PVDR. Henry was transferred to LMMR and diagnosed with bilateral fibrotic myopathy, which prevents him from being able to move faster than a walk. Henry isn't in any pain, but he is disabled and needs a soft place to live where he will not have to compete for food or risk further injury.

 

Jenna

is a 10 year old mare rescued from a hoarding situation in 2018 involving hundreds of animals, many of which were deceased on the property. Jenna herself was almost starved to death and has since been rehabilitated, but she has impaired vision which puts her at a higher risk for injury. Click here to set up a monthly $25 donation for Jenna.
