How to Adopt A Horse!
Step 1 - Meeting your horse
After visiting our sanctuary and deciding which horse/mule is the one for you, an Application for Adoption must be completed. We ask several questions to help us make sure that you and your prospective ‘new’ horse are a good fit.
If your application is approved…..an Adoption Contract is required. This extensive, binding contract is a safeguard for both the Adopter, the horse and the Sanctuary. A copy of our Adoption Application and Adoption Contract is available on this web page.
FMNHR takes the application process very seriously. We are committed to finding the right human for each horse. We want your adoption to be a positive experience and the questions we ask are geared toward understanding your horse experience and helping you select the perfect equine partner. This careful, thoughtful process will help ensure a rewarding relationship for both you and your horse.
Once you have met your potential new horse and your application has been approved, we will work closely with you to make sure you have all the resources in place for a smooth transition for your new horse. We'll do everything we can to ensure you have the support you need to enjoy your new horse and begin building the relationship that all horse lovers dream of. The adoption contract has been developed to protect the horse. Your horse will never again be subjected to abuse, neglect or hunger. Horse abuse and neglect is at epidemic levels across the nation. It's overwhelming to see such need and know that we can't save them all. But your willingness to bring your new horse into your family will allow us to rescue other horses in need and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity and willingness to make a difference in the life of this horse.
We will be adding more horses as they become available. These horses are looking for that special forever home. Please help us help these horses and check back soon!
Please keep in mind that these horses are not free. While we don't try to "make money" on any of our horses, we do need to recoup some of the cost associated with caring for them. We have vet bills, worming, trimming, vaccinations, supplements, hay, grain... the list goes on and on. While it would be great to be able to give these horses away, we would have to close our doors to other horses in need because we would lose hundreds of dollars on each horse.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
