DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, SHARE IS TAKING APPOINTMENTS FOR SHOWING ADOPTABLE HORSES ON A LIMITED BASIS AS PER STATE'S COVID RECOMMENDATIONS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.
SHARE is a nonprofit humane society in the Champaign, IL area with investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois. We provide housing, care, and training for approximately 40 rescue horses at any one time. Other than some "sanctuary horses-horses that are not available for adoption due to physical or health issues," these horses are up for adoption to loving, forever homes. SHARE DOES NOT RECEIVE ANY FUNDING FROM FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL TAXES - your donations keep SHARE operating!
Our goals are simple - help educate horse owners on proper care and treatment. When necessary we step in to rescue neglected and abuse animals. Once we receive a horse from a situation like that, rehabilitation is the first priority. The horses must be brought to a healthy weight and must learn to trust humans. This takes much time and effort on the founder and volunteers of S.H.A.R.E. but the reward is worth the work.
This is not an easy task and only through the help of volunteers are we able to provide the best care to our rescued horses.
SHARE thanks all the volunteers and those who donate either their time and money in making SHARE work smoothly.
HORSE OF THE MONTH:
Meet CINCO! A lovely 8 year old Quarter Horse mare, Her dame is a championship horse; her sire is a grand champion! Cinco is one special horse and she can be registered! Cinco is black with chrome and has a nice level western pleasure conformation! Cinco has had 60 days professional training and she is looking for her forever home. She was born with a 5th-leg appenditure on her left front but thanks to the late Dr. Monfort, it was removed and you have to look very hard to find the scar. She gets along with other horses, leads, and just needs someone to put some wet saddle pad hours in to become someone's Black Beauty! If you're interested in Cinco, please visit our Adoption page to fill out an adoption application.
