Gavin is a very sweet horse who was rescued from a sales yard, we bid against a horse abbatoir to rescue this handsome fellow.
Handsome Gavin is a Standardbred, 7 years old and approx 17 hands.
Do you have a horse that needs a friend? Gavin would make an awesome buddy. He would be a wonderful paddock pal. He is great with other horses, he is not dominant and very calm.
We are not adopting out our horses to be ridden.
We would hate for these horses to end in a sales yard again due to being adopted with the only view that the horse is rideable.
Pets Haven want forever homes for our horses and feel the option of being paddock pals will ensure their safety.
Our horses will be adopted on a permanent lease, ensuring they will return to us rather than risk the knackery again.
Pets Haven is a Pro-Life Animal Shelter.
Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home orphaned and homeless animals.
We do not and will never euthanise animals for economic reasons.
Unlimited veterinary care will be provided for any animal that comes into our care.
We temperament test every animal prior to accepting them into our shelter. If we accept a dog with a mild behavioural problem (such as jumping up, pulling on the lead etc) we will address this at the advice of a qualified dog trainer.
Euthanasia will only occur if:
On the advice of a veterinarian, they are diagnosed incurably ill and the prognosis is not favourable
If the animal displays a temperament which is deemed high risk.
We believe in responsibly giving all life a chance.
