Pet-of-the-Week: Rex the horse, of course!

Rex the horse


Rex – ID #A24583

Did you know that Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter has a barn? Sometimes we have large animals for adoption, such as our horse Rex. Rex was found abandoned in bad shape. He was malnourished and dehydrated, with hooves growing around his horseshoes. With the help of our Extra-Mile fund, we have been able to bring in the extra care needed to get Rex back into shape. Rex has lived a rough life and is looking for a peaceful pasture to enjoy the rest of his years.

Rex is a male bay who we estimate to be around 14 years old.
