I keep my rescue operation small and simple; this is my key to success and not going broke while trying to save animals. Most of the time my adoption fee is $200.00 if there is vet work that needs to be done when you adopt the horse, that fee goes directly to that cost and it is done here before the horse is taken home. This could be castration, dental work etc.)
In order to adopt one of my horses I just have a few simple rules and requirements.
o You must provide me with references from your vet, your farrier, a friend and a neighbor. I will also do a site visit and interview to make sure that the horse you wanting to adopt will fit into your situation and is suitable for your horse knowledge and experience.
o You must remain in contact with me either by phone or email on occasion because I like to make sure that you and the horse are okay.
o If for any reason you cannot or do not want to care for the horse any longer, bring it back no questions asked. I’d rather take a horse back then leave you stuck with more then you can handle or have it passed off to someone who might not take good care of it.
o You must promise to provide the horse with a habitat that has adequate fencing, shelter, food and water. I will do a pre-adoption site visit to make sure that your facility passes muster.
o You must promise to provide the horse with quality vet and farrier care at all times.
o You must promise to love and care for the horse.
o You must complete and sign the adoption application/agreement.
