Joey’s home animal rescue provides the best care I’ve seen for rescue equines. Melinda essentially boards horses until they find their person—providing them their own stalls and food, regular visits from vets, Farriers, and dentists. She gave a good home for years to my horse, Traveler. I like to think it was all for us to find each other. I have also adopted from Joey’s two paint horses who also have made their home here—saving them from a less than desirable owner.
Horses that are healthy and trainable also receive further training to make their likelihood of adoptability higher. Joey’s clearly cares about the horses more than anything else—no expense is spared for their care while they either live out their remaining time or wait to find their forever homes.
I highly recommend this rescue.
No words will ever be able to explain how amazing Melinda and the Team at Joey’s Home Animal Rescue are. They are what rescue should always be. Joey's home provides the absolute best care to every single horse and animal that arrives at their facility and takes the time to get them the proper training they need to find the best home possible. The property is always tidy, stalls and water buckets cleaned daily, and a kind smile to greet you every time you visit. I wouldn’t have my mare if it wasn’t for Joey’s home saving her and giving me the opportunity to adopt her. Thank you isn’t enough to show the gratitude I have for them! If you’re looking for a rescue to support, volunteer, or adopt from, consider Joey’s home. They are rescue done right!
I have visited Joey’s Home on numerous occasions and have always been in awe of Melinda and the wonderful work she does with these special horses. She takes such good care of the grounds, the stables and all the common areas where the horses are housed. I witnessed horses come to Joey’s Home in dire need of physical and mental care. And within no time at all these beautiful animals come back to life and they have a chance to maybe find a “forever home” with someone. And for the reasons above I have decided to join the team of supporters and now contribute money every month to help Melinda keep doing the wonderful work on behalf of Joey’s Home. I will also volunteer to brush, wash and whatever it takes to help her in any way I can.
Joey's rescue put me together with my miniature horse Domino, last year. He is such a treat! He is daring, smart, always ready to work and a darling representative of his breed. I was really lucky to get in contact with Melinda at Joey's Rescue. A friend put me in touch with Melinda when she saw a picture of Domino online. Melinda did everything she could to make sure Domino's transition went smoothly. A rescue agent checked out my ranch for suitability, I was interviewed, and then I got to meet Domino. Since bringing him home, he had an operation to correct a front hoof realignment and he had gone into training for his job as a driving horse. He loves going out, dressed up with his own harness, and showing off to all who see us. He is a real joy. I am very thankful to Melinda and her volunteers at Joey's Rescue for facilitating my partnership with the greatest mini horse in the world!
Hello, I would like to say a few words about a horse rescue I recently had the enjoyment to acquaint myself with. Due to having my riding horse injured last year and after time, money and treatments failed, I found myself possibly looking for a replacement trail partner. A very good friend suggested going to Joey’s Home to start my search locally along with looking online and out of the immediate area. Well folks, I have to admit, I was dragging my feet at the prospect of checking out a local rescue. What a wonderful surprise to find a rescue run with the horse being the priority. What do I mean by that? When a new horse is brought in, it is quarantined, checked out by a veterinarian, teeth done if needed, feet taken care of, chiropractic if needed and gets assessed as to what that individual horse is adoptable. Whether that means rideable, pasture mate or just an adored yard ornament. Once a horse is adaptable, every effort is made to match rider/home with horse. So, if you’re looking to volunteer your time, knowledge, looking for a horse or would like to donate financially, I can’t recommend a better place than Joeys Home. It is a remarkable place where no effort is spared for the benefit of the horse.
