Zeb's Wish Equine Sanctuary



"Zeb’s Wish rescues and provides sanctuary for elder and special needs horses, mules, and donkeys while creating a healing space for humans and the planet”

Our 3 key areas.

1.     EQUINE WELLBEING: We rescue, rehabilitate, re-home, and provide sanctuary for abandoned, neglected, and special needs equines.

2.     HUMAN WELLBEING: We connect equines and humans in ways that provide healing and growth opportunities for both.

3.     ECOLOGICAL WELLBEING. We manage the sanctuary with an eye towards sustainability, managing stream and pasture health and connecting people to the environment.

Bottom Line for Portland

Zeb’s Wish currently has 9 Equines being cared for at the Sanctuary, 13 Living in foster homes, 28 living in screened adoptive homes.  All are allowed the time, compassion and space to blossom, to know unconditional love, to provide healing for others and to die with dignity knowing they were cherished. 

As opposed to traditional rescue, rehab, and adopt out programs that tend to focus on ridable equines, our elder and special needs equines require extra care which is an expensive endeavor.  The hospice programs in particular do not have the option to recoup expenses through adoption fees. Funding by generous donors like you is essential. 

This caring environment and the sustainably managed sanctuary is also a peaceful and inspiring place for people to heal and grow as they participate in Equine Assisted Learning and Coaching programs.


“Its just such a special place and it just instantly brings peace and rest and relaxation and connection and calmness.  All the good things that we are out searching for. They are all right here”  Amanda Leto

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Zeb’s Wish holds a strong ethic of open-mindedness, kindness, and compassion, and we welcome all races, gender orientations, abilities, and faiths. 

We have represented Zeb’s at Portland Pride and have marched in support of our BIPOC community in Sandy and Estacada and are active with LGBTQ community groups. We also donate our finished compost to several community garden programs producing food for marginalized, low-income, and underserved families in the Sandy and Estacada area. 


Our first 2 donation matches totally $4000 have been met!  We have a new anonymous donation match of $3500 which will match any donation amount dollar for dollar!!!  This is the perfect chance to help get us over the goal line!

Alder Tree Vineyard, our neighbor out here in Sandy, is offering free full flight wine tastings and 20% off all wine purchases for ALL donors (21+ yrs of age).

Every donor over $1,000 receives a one night ‘glamping’ stay for two at Zeb’s Wish in our woodstove heated creekside studio with horses, mules, donkeys and mini-horses at your door step! This includes  a tour with the founders.
