Gramps is a 23 yr old Mustang stallion saved from the kill pen who went through multiple bouts of colic. He did not have the strength to make it through the last one even under vet care.
Oasis had grown to love his gentlers and melted into their arms before they compassionately said goodbye. Oasis had advanced liver disease and had to be euthanized.
Trooper died suddenly at foster while waiting for his dinner. He arrived with a broken nasal bone, which is why his face is swollen. He was in a good place when he passed and knew care and a full stomach.

Bringing to light the BLM Adoption Incentive Program is not working, Evanescent Mustang Rescue was featured in this article on Tree Hugger. The only comment so far says Mustangs should be sent STRAIGHT to slaughter, so let's FILL IT WITH comments from Mustang supporters!
A more in depth article in the New York Times. We are glad to see the media paying attention to the plight of the Mustangs and Burros being put at risk due to the terrible Adoption Incentive program.
Bloomer curious and not upset by the reach.
Big yawn from Bloomer after only minutes of working with him on Day 1!
A Texas online newspaper interviewed Evanescent's founder and Pres., Candace Ray, as well as a few foster moms for an article about the rescue and the Mustangs. Click the picture to be taken to the story!
3 BLM mares and the daughter of one of the BLM mares were all saved from Kansas. Only 3 fit into this this picture, but alll 4 are pregnant. At least now are in a safe place to foal.
Freedom ride for 4 titled BLM Burros - all geldings. Such sweet boys!
This is Red. He had an angel who paid his complete bail from the Kansas kp as long as he could come to Evanescent Mustang Rescue and eventually a loving home found for him. He was ridden in his kill pen video!
This is just two of the four Mustangs who were literally taken off the truck to Mexico! That allowed us a little more time to raise the funds needed to get them safely to foster.
A total of 31 Mustangs and Burros were saved in JUST January this year and only a few of them are shown in this block. As of Feb. 10, 2021, we are currently fundraising for another 7 BLM Mustangs at a Texas kill pen.
We are grateful for all our supporters and none of these Mustangs and Burros could have been saved from certain death without you! Check out our Fundraiser page for ways you can shop for yourself and help Evanescent at the same time.

Nov. 12, 2020 - On Nov. 9th, we learned of 20 BLM Mustangs dropped at the Cleburn Horse Auction in TX. Most were mares that had been running with 2 stallions (not dropped @ auction) and are most likely pregnant. All Mustangs were only titled 2 mos. ago and likely victims of the Adoption Incentive Program...
We owe a HUGE THANK YOU to Skydog Ranch, their supporters and Evanescent's supporters!! You were all SO generous in this extremely short time frame and enough donations were received to save ALL 20, which turned out to be a total of 24 including 3 foals and a surprise Mustang Makeover Mustang. For more details, please LIKE us on Facebook.
Another fundraiser auction is in the works. Check back on our FUNDRAISERS page to see the latest ways you can help support Evanescent Mustang Rescue & Sanctuary.
Meet Lady - a very sweet, skinny Mustang. When Evanescent heard about her heading to auction, our amazing supporters stepped up again and we were able to keep her from going to the kill buyer! However, as you can see she has a long recovery ahead. While donations to save the Mustangs up front are *always* appreciated, funds are equally important for their health care & special diets.
Lucy was one of the 7 Spanish Angels and she has since gone through an amazing transformation. It took being let out with a herd and one special horse in the group to show her everything will be ok! Read the full story here.
But that's not all the good news... Lucy has been ADOPTED!!
Saved from a Texas kill pen auction just two weeks after being picked up at an adoption event. Gandalf is 4 yrs old from Beauty Butte Oregon - sale authority.
He has arrived at his foster home in Colorado where he will be gentled. Fortunately, he has remained healthy through his QT, but if you are able to donate any amount toward his hauling & care while he decompresses, we would be ever grateful!
Feel free to contact us to inquire about Mustangs for adoption.

As of March 1, 2019, Atoka has made it to Evanescent's Sanctuary to live out his life in peace. Words cannot convey how grateful we are to our donors and fosters to get ALL the Mustangs on this page to a safe place! Pictured below are just some of the Mustangs saved in 2019 either at auction or from kill pens in the South.
We were made aware of a Mustang yearling filly in a Colorado kill pen, which broke our hearts. Our donors felt the same and came together to raise the funds to save this baby - Feb., 2019.
Valentine was saved from a KS Kill pen after we found her there... yes, on Valentine's Day. The vet treating her for kill pen crud is estimating her at about 20 yrs. old.
Mariko & Akira (pic below) both came from a N. Texas kill pen and are said to be pregnant. Both will be vet checked next week at their foster home. Thank you SO much to our donors for saving this beautiful pinto grulla and her friend, Akira.
It's hard to tell, but Akira is a pinto also.
Faith was saved pre-kill pen at a livestock auction. She was so traumatized by her experience there, she had to be moved to a 2nd foster home due to her behavior getting the other horses riled up too much. She now has her own quiet area to settle in and recover.
UPDATE 3/30/19: Rita is safe and on the Adoptable page!!
Her brand puts her at 27 yrs. old and she was obviously loved by someone, but has found herself in the Oklahoma kill pen. We are ALMOST at the funds needed to get her to Sanctuary where she can live the rest of her beautiful life!
