Adopting equines from SWFHR is the perfect opportunity to give love, where it is needed. While the amount of Time & Money behind owning, an equine are factors to be heavily considered when adopting. We are looking for people with a sense of commitment that has been well thought through. Our focus is the future of any equine we care for, ensuring that they never are subjected to any version of neglect or harm ever.
Adopting is about principle and not the path to an inexpensive purchase. While our adoption fees are rather low, (as we understand the cost of rehabilitation will range way above average price points) we do this so we can open the pool of potential adopters. Our screening process is quite rigorous and if there is heart involved it will be seen. That pays much more than cash in our eyes.
Let us just clear the field with a few obvious statements and conditional requirements.
The first step to adopting is to fill out an Adoption Contact Form. This shows your intent or interest to us and puts you on our records which simplifies the rest of the process. After we receive this form, you will be contacted within 48hrs to either; arrange a visit to the rescue or notify you we don’t have an equine that fits your request and offer you to be added to our Looking List.
Once following through with a visit to the SWFHR facility… if you’ve found an equine you are considering to adopt at this point you will start the application process by filling out an Adoption Application. Some key points to mention about the application are as follows:
After your application, has been approved you will finalize things by completing the Adoption Agreement with SWFHR.
One (1) year after adoption you will be required to submit an Annual Health Update Form to SWFHR for review.
