Amazon Smile

Amazon has a program Amazon Smile in which a percentage of what people spend doing their normal Amazon shopping is given to their charity of choice.

What you do is log into Amazon (if you’ve already picked your charity – hopefully GARS!) and you should be directed to

Here’s a link on how it works >> About Smile.Amazon  <<

As a Rescue/Sanctuary every penny helps and this is a super easy way for you to help Minis in need doing what you normally do on Amazon!

So if you are an Amazon shopper please consider listing Galloping Angels Rescue & Sanctuary as your charity of choice.  We’d love the support!

Valentine’s Day is almost here, if you are shopping for your special sweetheart (or yourself!), please consider using and listing GARS!

2020 Updates

It’s 2020 and time to update GARS status and how the Minis are doing.

We are working on our Adoptables list (Check Facebook for more info/photos).  If you know anyone looking for an older companion Mini please contact GARS.

GARS is in need of support to make it through the next few months. Winter is rough, even in NorCal, and hay running $14+ a bale is pretty steep along with the other feeds the rescues need.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to GARS, we have PayPal (see right side of page) or we do accept checks.  We also would be happy with a donation of high quality hay!


New Home for GARS

Galloping Angels Rescue and Sanctuary has been searching for a permanent home, preferably in Northern California or Nevada.  We’ve been trying to identify a location for the past few months/year so we can make permanent housing for the sanctuary horses and have a safe and secure place for all the horses and for volunteers to come and participate.

We need usable acreage (with or without outbuildings), preferable with a usable home or mobile; working well/septic or public water.  Fenced would be great too!

If you know of anything that would be suitable for sale or on a long-term lease, (reasonably priced as GARS is a non-profit!) please give us a shout, okay!




Rosie is an unregistered pony.  We’re not sure if she’s a shetland, welsh, cross or ???  She came to GARS from the Butte County Animal Control after she was seized from the previous owners.

Rosie and a few of her former barn mates were found after they’d jumped a fence ot two escaping their previous home.  Two had broken legs and were euthanized on the spot.  According to Butte Animal Control, it took some time to catch Rose as she had the appearance of either abuse or never having been handled or some combination.  She has a total lack of trust of humans.

When she arrived at our facility, she immediate jumped the fence – fortunately into a pen with the other horses!  That seemed like an okay place to her and she’s remained with them.herd 072216 4

We’ve been working on her trust issues and it has helped she adopted another rescue from the Turlock Auction, Frankie (you can just see his head behind Rosie).  They’re quite bonded now.

Rosie still has an overwhelming flight instinct and must be contained during thunderstorms.  But she has made progress as we can now handle her and she doesn’t immediately flee.

We had hopes of eventually re-homing her, but it will depend on how she progresses over time and finding an ideal home that can take her and Frankie.

If you’d like to help Rosie and Frankie or any of the other horses at Galloping Angels, please click on the donation button.  All donations are tax deductable!
