Greetings from Doxy's Horse Recovery, Inc. and Clyde, a 7 year
old barn clown who came to us dying of pneumonia and miraculously survived, the mascot of Doxy's. He has a comforter
in the barn that he pulls down every night for his blanket. Clyde represents our mission, a love for horses.
Michael announced that Clyde could be adopted for a firm ONE MILLION DOLLARS!! The fee was then increased
to $1.5 million after discovering Clyde could be saddled, bridled and ridden. His adoption fee is now TWO
MILLION DOLLARS since Clyde was featured in a magazine, "Kids Wear" - what a guy, from clown to celebrity!
Welcome to Doxy's Horse Recovery
Doxy's Horse Recovery, Inc. is run by a couple who feel passionate about caring for unwanted horses
and placing them in loving new homes. Doxy's was started when they moved to the country from a residential area so they could
continue with their rescue of dachshunds. Their new location also offered them the opportunity to begin taking in and re-homing
horses. The name Doxy's comes from the many dachshunds they have in addition to the horses.
Doxy's Horse Recovery, Inc.’s
mission is to recover, rehabilitate and re-home horses that otherwise have no chance at life and are typically headed to facilities
for slaughter and sold as meat. Some of these horses come through the auction
and others are direct cast-offs from the horse racing industry. When you adopt a horse from Doxy's you are helping to save
a life and to further Doxy's mission.
Doxy’s is committed to
education as the only solution to the plight of horses by educating individuals and the public about proper care and responsibilities,
the issues of neglect, abuse, and slaughter and over-breeding.
All adoptable and adopted horses can be viewed at Petfinder.com, Equine.com,
Horseclicks.com and Rescue Me.org.
Rescue Me! is a free site to help find homes for adoptable animals. Learn more!
