Leroy, Miniature Horse

Leroy is a male Miniature Horse currently housed at Blind Spot Animals Sanctuary.

Leroy has had all his shots.

Notes from Leroy's caretakers:

Leroy is about three years of age, healthy and fully vetted (recently castrated, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed). Leroy might be little; some may call him short, but he has a big personality. He loves girl volunteers at the Sanctuary and does well with his halter and leading. Leroy must have had a bad experience with humans in the past and is still a bit insecure, but he does very well with training. He is a bit unsure about us touching his legs, yet he never tries to kick or bite. Leroy was picked up as stray and found himself at a local shelter. He later came to Blind Spot and has been thriving ever since.

Apply to adopt Leroy today at Petfinder.

Barrett, Pot-Bellied Pig

Barrett's vaccinations are up to date.

Here's what Barrett's friends at Blind Spot Animals Sanctuary think of him:

Barrett is an adorable young piglet looking for a forever home.
