HEAVEN SENT ANIMAL SANCTUARY
Heaven Sent Animal Sanctuary, Inc. on Oahu would like to introduce our donation programs.
Our experience and skills help us to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected, and elderly horses. We strive to prevent any future acts of cruelty by educating the community on responsible equine stewardship. We offer classes on various subjects from Equine 101 to Shoeing to get the community involved and to learn what it takes to care for a horse. Heaven Sent Animal Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Tax Exempt Organization.
There are a few different ways you can help us out. You can volunteer to feed and groom horses, donate from the donation page, in-house Adoption and you can adopt a horse and take it home with you.. Heaven Sent Animal Sanctuary, Inc.donations are very important to the success of the program. Expenses rise everyday for the care of these animals. Heaven Sent Animal Sanctuary, Inc. also is in need of items that you may have laying around your yard.

Board and post
Electric Tape (minimum of 3 strands)Fencing must be a minimum height of 4.5 feet. All fencing is expected to be in good repair, well maintained, and free of fallen debris or overgrowth. Wire fencing is expected to be tight and without sagging.
We do not accept these conditions:
Cattle Grates or Cattle Guards of any kind in areas accessible to horses
Plastic Construction or Snow Fence
Step-In Posts as primary or perimeter fencing
T-Posts as primary or perimeter fencing.
For example, it would be acceptable to use Step-In or T-Posts as temporary fencing, a fence patch, or to create rotational grazing within a larger paddock. We do not accept either Step-In posts or T-Posts as permanent perimeter fencing.
We accept field board with access to a run in shed, as well as access to a stall to both be forms of adequate shelter. We do not accept trees or other natural windbreaks to be shelter.
Run-In Sheds: Must be of adequate size for the number of horses present, based on a measurement of 6×6 per horse. Run-Ins must be three sided with a roof, and must have solid and reasonably clean footing.
Stalls: Minimum acceptable stall size is 10×10, with 12×12 or larger being strongly preferable. Horses are expected to have a minimum of 12 hours turn out daily except in the most extreme of weather conditions
Minimum requirement of 1 fenced acre per horse. Acreage must meet local zoning regulations for housing horses, which may exceed our requirements. In such situations, local zoning takes precedence over our requirements. The exception to this requirement is the horse that requires a dry lot for insulin resistance.
We require that horses have access to clean, fresh water in pastures and when stalled. Water needs to be provided in a trough or tub, with the ability to prevent freezing in winter weather. Natural water sources such as ponds, creeks, and streams are not accepted as a primary water source, but may be available as secondary water sources. We highly encourage the fencing off of bodies of water where deep mud can accumulate on banks or shores.
We require that at least one other equine (horse, mule, pony, miniature horse, or donkey) be present as a companion for any adopted horse. Goats, sheep, and other farm animals are not considered adequate companions. Horses must minimally be able to socialize over a fence line.
All animals are expected to be in good health, of a body condition score of 4 or better, be current on legally required vaccines and Equine Infectious Anemia (Coggins) testing, and have adequately maintained hoof / Paw care.
