Update, 9/22/10: Neither Jelly Bean nor Red Bean appear to be available for adoption at this time.

Update, 11/12/08: Jelly Bean’s listing has been removed from Petfinder; I assume this means that the old girl has either been adopted, or HSMO has decided to keep her at their sanctuary. Red Bean is still available for adoption.



This week’s Featured Adoptables are an equine first! Jelly Bean and Red Bean are a mother/daughter pair of Quarterhorses from the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch.

First up: Mother Jelly Bean (who is pictured in the top photo above):

Jelly Bean is halter trained, easy to catch, loads on a stock trailer and picks up her feet for the farrier.

She is Red Bean’s mother.

1/14/08 – Scott, our on staff trainer, evaluated her today. She accepts a saddle and rider, but doesn’t know a lot. Had not been round pen trained, but was accepting the idea.

Adoption Fee: $300

And of Daughter Red Bean (show in the bottom photo), HSMO says the following:

Red Bean is approximately 1 year old. She is a sorrel with a star and 3 stockings. She was not halter trained when she came in, but has learned fast.

Her mother is Jelly Bean and so she should reach 15 hands in height when mature.

Adoption Fee: $200

It doesn’t seem as though the two have to be adopted as a pair; but if you have room in your heart for two fine fillies, why not keep a family together?

Each Wednesday, the Kansas City Freecycle blog will feature one adoptable animal from a local KC rescue group or animal shelter.

We do this for several reasons:

– To highlight the plight of companion animals in the Kansas City area.

– To remind members of our no-animal policy, and provide an alternative venue for members who wish to adopt an unwanted animal.

– To encourage members to adopt a furry friend.

– To help out out local animal rescue groups and animal shelters, many of which are overwhelmed by the sheer number of animals in need.

– To illustrate these animals’ unique personalities and characteristics, thus underscoring the fact that they are not objects and should not be “freecycled”.
