Hi, I’m Dont’e!
I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since I was rescued with my mom Shakira. Time flies when you’re safe, well cared for and loved! It seems like yesterday we were brought to the SFSPCA rescue ranch after a good human reported that we were in danger because we weren’t fenced in. I’m so glad that person called.
I was just a little foal back then, skinny and afraid of everything and everyone. Momma kept telling me it was okay, but I wasn’t so sure. I hid behind her a lot. But one day I realized I could trust the nice people at SFSPCA, and I let them lead me around, and pet me. I even let them pick up my hooves and clean them out!
That was the beginning of the best days of my life. I became friends with the other young horses, and we love to run and play in the big pasture together. The people here are so nice to me, and are teaching me how to be a gentleman because one day I’ll get adopted. Now that I’m being ridden, my chances are even better! But until then, I heard about this Sponsor A Rescue program and said, “Pick me!”
