You can also check out the horses in Rehab and see if there is a special horse that catches your eye there. If so, please feel free to email us with questions as to how the rehab is progressing and when we think the horse will be available for adoption. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can help us support these horses by donating or sponsoring! It costs money to bring these horses back to good health and prepare them for a new home. We appreciate your kindness and generosity!
Please note that the horses that are fostered are still available for adoption.
