To apply for an adoption, click on the adoption application button and fill out the form. We will contact you with any questions.

Please be aware of the following: 
1. we normally have a waiting list for donkey adoptions - you will need to submit an application to be placed on the wait list
2. we are a volunteer organization and have no paid staff, applications can take up to a week to be approved
3. we will not adopt out for breeding, petting zoos or livestock protection

  • Must be 18 years or older and must be adopting for themselves or their immediate family.

  • We have a no breeding clause.

  • Mares and jennies will not be adopted to a home with stallions or jacks.

  • Gelding will occur before adoption or as soon as physically able

  • We ask for several references as well as a vet reference.

  • Our site visits are simple... we are looking for safe fencing, access to some sort of shelter, fresh water and limited pasture.

  • Miniatures cannot be housed with full sized horses due to increased risk of injury to either the mini or large horse because of the size difference between the two. 

  • Minis will be adopted in pairs unless the new family already has a mini.

  • All equines are fully vetted before adoption. This includes vaccines, dental floats, farrier care, castration, required surgeries and worming. 

  • Adoption fees may vary but are normally $400 for a single ponies (over 40"), miniature horses, and miniature donkeys. We do reduce adoption fees for pairs $700 and trios $950

  • Since we do not have the history on all mares they can occasionally be pregnant when adopted. The foal must be adopted after birth (there is no fee for this) or returned to the rescue when weaned
