Lost and Found Horse Rescue Foundation

Lost and Found Horse Rescue Foundation Founded in 1999, Lost and Found Horse Rescue is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing equines from neglect, abuse, and slaughter.
(11)

Lost and Found Horse Rescue Foundation was founded in 1999 by Mr. and Mrs. Truland. We are a registered Maryland non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing equines. Located on a beautiful 120 are farm in Germantown, MD, LFHR is home to as many as 50 equines at a time. LFHR began primarily as a donkey rescue and over the years evolved to include horses as well. Currently, we have decided to go back to our roots and downsize the herd to a dozen or so donkeys. Each animal in our care is special and deserves another chance and new partner for life. At this time we have 4 horses, 2 full size mules and 5 donkeys available for adoption. Adoption fees range from $1 (Companion only horses) to $350 (donkeys and mules). For more information on the farm and the equines, or to set up an appointment, please contact Ashley Young. Volunteers 16 and up with large amounts of equine experience are welcome at Lost and Found.

Mission: To take equines from lives without love to lives full of love through rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, and re-homing.

It is with a heavy heart to let our followers know that Cous cous lost her battle with laminitis. With multiple different pain managements and corrective farrier work her radiographs and level of pain never improved to a good quality of life. Thank you so much for your help and support during this sad time. Furby, Cous cous' daughter (shown as baby when born on the farm 6 years ago) is now looking for her forever home.

Meet Cous Cous. She recently found her way back to Lost and Found after five years. She started showing evidence of lameness and laminitis. These xrays show that she has foundered. We are doing everything we can to try to save her from breaking through her hoof wall at which point she will have to be put down. The Farrier comes Friday for Corrective shoeing. We need 150$ for the farrier and 375$ to cover the vet bills from the xrays last week.

**Please help us raise money to try to Save Cous Cous**

The farrier comes back on Friday, help us take away those painful feet.

Lost horse, please help! 16.2hh bay thoroughbred, white star on face. Last seen wearing a gray fly mask and fly boots. Got loose from Old Gravity Road Hawley, PA. Please call Nicole (631-786-8612)
Hello, I’m searching for my horse Paulo. Here is his case on NetPosse. If anyone has seen him or has any information about him. Please contact me. Thank you! https://www.facebook.com/StolenHorseInternationalNetPosse/photos/a.146948968652937.28361.112782218736279/1768353356512482/?type=3
I never thought I would fall so deeply in love with a donkey. Thank you so much Ashley and Lost and Found for convincing me that little Godiva would be a great companion for Elle. They are both doing great and we couldn't be happier.
Missing horse please keep your eyes open
