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 12/24: Our donors are LITERALLY AMAZING!! Enough money was raised in the last hours to save ALL SEVEN of the Mustangs! Evanescent is so incredibly thankful for all donors of ALL amounts and for saving the lives of these horses.
12/21: As of this posting, just 15 hours ago there were 7 BLM branded Mustangs posted on the Kansas kill pen Facebook page (3 shown above). Most are geldings listed at "under 8 yrs. old" and just $450 each. Evanescent Mustang Rescue is fundraising to save what we are calling the SEVEN SPANISH ANGELS.
We have until December 24th to keep them from shipping to slaughter.
What better gift to give this time of year than THE GIFT OF LIFE! We have a trainer lined up for four, but our goal is to raise funds to save them all. Seven Mustangs @ Kansas kill pen
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!
UPDATE 10/10: Beast is now listed on the Available to adopt page.
There is a foster for the bay gelding, but we need to raise $500 to cover his price. There is a foster available for him, but we need a place for the mare to go.
We're trying to raise the funds to get Barbie, Baby Doll & her foal, Casper, to Texas. Specify in comments that you want to help with their transport costs when donating.
8/18: This gelding was saved by bid over the phone because we had nobody at auction to bid & keep him safe. We got him for just $375 and kept him out of kill buyer hands
8/22: Confirmed about 7 mos. pregnant, Reba sadly lost her foal. She was allowed to grieve over the baby before he was buried nearby w/a lock of her mane. Reba continues to heal and gain much needed weight.
Together since being gathered in '03, two geldings were rescued from an OK kill pen with the help of a donor of $850! We only raised $35 toward their match. If you want to help with their bail, specify Salt Wells geldings in the note.
We are always grateful for your generous support no matter what the amount.
Named after Reba McEntire, another beautiful redhead, this beauty arrived thinner than expected, but has arrived at her foster home to be pampered and put on a special diet to help her gain the weight she needs.
Do you want to help by sponsoring Reba's rehabilitation?
Any donation to help with her recovery is greatly appreciated! We have some amazing supporters and just want to say THANK YOU to every one who has helped with Reba and the many other Mustangs rescued this year.
To donate specifically toward Reba's care, click below and note REBA in the comments.
We learned of this yearling Mustang filly going to auction in south TX from a rescue friend who reached out to see if we could help keep her out of the 'flippers' & kill buyers hands. Thanks to two generous donations, we were able to cover $400 of the $450 bid needed to win her.
Just $50 will cover the remainder of her purchase price and $100 should take care of her time in QT while we figure out the rest of the details. Donations to help sponsor this beauty can go through www.paypal.me/mustangrescue
A HUGE thank you to New Caney Equine Rescue for helping us save this young mustang!
Baby Doll finally revealed the newest addition to Evanescent Mustangs saved from slaughter!!! At first look the baby appears to be a colt, but we should know for sure soon! More pics to come soon!!! We will be keeping Baby Doll, Barbie and new baby at their QT facility for 2-4 more weeks to make sure they're ready for a road trip.
A HUGE thank you to Bluestem Acres Equine Services for keeping them safe and allowing Doll to have her foal in peace.

June 23, 2018: We may not find out how THIS Mustang found himself in a kill buyer's hands, but Evanescent cannot and will not sit by while he goes to a slaughter house!! His price is $900, plus Quarantine (QT).
All donations go toward the Mustangs and all donations are tax deductible because Evanescent is a 501(c)3 charity. We are grateful for any and all amounts ! Thank you for viewing out page.
We had just enough to cover Ghost's bail in time to be picked up with Cherokee!! And Dee (the bay Bowie mare) got picked up about the same time! So thankful for all our supporters!!!
Our final mustang of the week, Ghost, just needs $300 to cover her quarantine.... We are calling her Ghost because she was almost gone before we knew about her... she wasn't posted on the site but our QT gal at Bluestem Acres Equine Services found out about her while she was picking up Barbie and Baby Doll.
We raised just enough in time for Ghost to be picked up with Cherokee today!!! In just 5 days we've saved FIVE BLM branded Mustangs (and one unborn baby)! EVERY donation is appreciated immensely AND is tax deductible.
June 15, 2018 - I'm calling these two Barbie and Doll....
We really need to get these two lovely ladies safe.... no donation is too small!!! We have a good QT lined up and transport should be able to be arranged for this weekend if we can get the funds in time... we do not want another baby born on one of the kill lots and we don't know how far along she would be!!!! The mare with the extra markings appears to have gone through the BLM PZP program (birth control) but looking at these two they likely came from the same herd and could easily be related.... but we won't know their full stories until we get them safe and settled!!!
We appreciate each and every one of our supporters. Help us get these two beauties safe!

Thanks to GENEROUS donations these two burros (w/kp sticker still on rump) were picked up this morning & are on their way to their foster home. John has a vet appt. to get his swollen knee looked at on Monday. We had enough for bail and transport, but not for vet bills, so donations would be greatly appreciated!
