Fostering Foster

Through the years Hoof & Paw has developed a wonderful partnership with Andrea Walker and her rescue, Fostering Foster. On many occasions animals needing immediate attention & adoption were taken in by Andrea no matter the cost or circumstances. Here are a few special cases



Lily & Sandy

Sandy & Lily were found in Fairfield County starving and almost dead. No one claimed ownership. Hoof & Paw provided a foster and after only 6 weeks, both were placed in special homes. Sadly, a 3rd horse found with them could not be saved. 


Horse Rescue

We wanted to partner with a reputable rescue that is successful in the rehabilitation and adoption of starving and abused horses. Horse Rescue & Elizabeth Stead have been providing diligent care for at risk horses which require more resources, more land, and much expertise. Take a look at some of her success stories.
