ABOUT OUR TRIBE
When our rescues come in they are seen by the veterinarian to get a complete assessment as to their condition. We take our time to figure out their temperament so they can be placed in the right home when they are ready to leave.
I was raised in a neighborhood without horses, but when the pony rides came around, I was hooked! It was love at first sight and from then on I knew horses were my destiny. At 6 years old I became a horse crazy girl.
I read every horse book I could get my hands on while growing up. My parents could not afford horses and so as soon as I was old enough to get a job after school, I began saving my money to buy a horse. I was just seventeen when I bought Gentile. He was a year-old untrained colt and we grew up together. Knowing nothing about the care or training of horses didn’t stop me - I read everything I could find on how to raise these beautiful animals and eventually became manager of a small ranch in Canyon Country.
Over the past three decades, I have been personally involved with rescuing or coordinating aid for horses and other animals like pigs and donkeys, including during some of the worst fires in the Los Angeles region.
Now I want to scale my efforts. With Tita’s Place, I am channeling my 30+ years of experience in caring for so many different kinds of animals into a not-for-profit venture focused full time on helping the never-ending stream of animals in need of rescue.
A WORK IN PROGRESS
The barn area that will house all rescues has been a work in progress for a little while now, we have been working all year to clear it up in preparation for our new animals. There have been some fallen trees that have caused damage and required time and effort to removed before we could begin planting and seeing, and the arena itself needed to be de-rocked before it was able to be used. This work took a lot of time and effort and will require constant work and upkeep to ensure all rescues that come through here have the best space available to be rehabilitated. All donations will go to ensuring that we can continue this vital work in giving these wonderful animals a second chance at life!
