While there are very few non-profit Mustang rescues willing to rescue from kill pens, all Mustang rescue groups have one thing in common. We ALL love Mustangs!! Evanescent has Mustangs and Burros available for adoption to loving homes in order to make room for saving more that find themselves at-risk. The below list is updated regularly as Mustangs & Burros complete QT & evaluation, so please keep checking back.

If your heart is open to showing an icon of the American West love and having him or her become your companion for the rest of their life, here are the steps Evanescent follows:
1. Fill out our adoption application
2. An Evanescent volunteer will check references and also speak to you about which Mustang/Burro may be your perfect match.
3. If an in-person home check is not an option, the adopter will be asked to send video or photos of where the Mustang is going to live.
Bubbles is a 2017 mare from Triple B HMA. She's a small little thing, but is sweet as can be! She takes a saddle and pad and has had a rider sit on her, picks up all 4 feet and will flex for treats. Bubbles is just pony sized, so would make a good horse for a young person. Video was taken just 2 mos. into being fostered and she has been worked w/by the young girl pictured. Located in AZ.
Sundance is a 4 yr old Range Creek HMA gelding. A Sale Authority Mustang now located in Colorado. He is a small guy - measured at just over 13 h by BLM, but may grow as he is still young. He has already started being gentled and his personality is coming out! Located in CO.
Butch (sorrel w/white blaze) is a 6 yr old Sulphur HMA gelding. He was measured at just 13.1, but looks to have grown a little and was relocated to Colorado in May, 2021 with his buddy Sundance and is already enjoying interaction with his foster dad.

Frosty is a 2014 gelding, super sweet, but still a little timid. Super smart and willing to learn. He does best with consistent work and is said to be green broke .

He still needs more desensitizing, but he has come a LONG way and a very quick learner. HMA will be posted as soon as it's known.
