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.
Coco is a beautiful 13.2 h, 2012 Divide Basin HMA mare; captured in September, 2017 and adopted at a BLM adoption event in 2019. In April of 2020, she was at her second home still ungentled, but has come a LONG way since then.
She has been saddled and ponied, bathes in the wash rack, loads, ties, is not difficult to catch, but she always turns and walks away first, stands to be groomed, sprayed with fly spray or detangler, wears a fly mask, will jump blue barrels easily, walks over tarp. She has been ridden several short sessions in the round pen- walk, stop, turn, back up, flexion, disengage hindquarters and pivot on hindquarters.
Coco is still a bit reactive and needs a new home with someone who is going to be able to take the time to earn her trust, (not cowboy her). A permanent home is wanted and adoption requests will require an adoption request be filled out.
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.
