EMERGENCY LINE: 602-538-0416
Slider was seized by Phoenix Police because of severe neglect. According the neighbors he only received food once every couple weeks. When we arrived he could not stand or even lift his head. He was literally in the very end stages of starvation. The AERO LAR team put Slider on a rescue glide and rushed him to Southwest Equine hospital with his friend Lali. Slider was a 3yo stallion that looked and acted like a yearling. It took 3 days to get Slider reliably on his feet and for two weeks he would lay down but we would have to lift him back to his feet. When he finally got to his feet on his own he let out a big whinny of excitement and all the other horses responded. We were all proud of his determination to live and today only a few scars from the severe bedsores remain as a reminder. Slider has a severe heart murmur so he is being held until he is more stable before adopting him out. He loves dogs and people in spite of his tough start and wins everyone over with his big eyes.
