Who We Are

Initially started in 2015 with Comet’s rescue, Evanescent Mustang Rescue & Sanctuary officially became a 501(c)3 charity organization on March 30, 2017.  Lakota (above) was the first Mustang rescued under our non-profit status.  Our sanctuary has 15 acres of pasture & hay field, a quarantine area and a paddock for separating newcomers.  We are lucky to have multiple reliable foster homes across the U.S., which has allowed us to rescue well over 1,000, yes ONE THOUSAND, Mustangs and Burros since becoming an official charity!

What is Evanescent?  (Pronounced Eh van Eh scent)  The definition of evanescent is “vanishing, fleeting: as, the pleasures and joys of life are evanescent.”   In other words, when we started it was assumed we would only be needed for a short amount of time.  Well, as you can see by the number of Mustangs and Burros we’ve rescued and taken in, fleeting is definitely not the case.

Mission Statement

Evanescent Mustang Rescue and Sanctuary was created for the prevention of animal cruelty through educating the public about horse care and safety. We are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of captive Mustangs and Burros that have been abused, neglected, or are in danger of going to slaughter. The program is designed to offer them a safe place to heal from trauma and prepare them to be adopted into a permanent home.

Our goal is to acquire more land for the Sanctuary Mustangs and Burros.  More land will allow the seniors or difficult to adopt equines a place to live out their lives in peace.

Most recently, Evanescent is cutting back on rescues and concentrating more on advancing our therapy programs – see below for more information.
