Adopters have to be at least 18, and provide an enclosed facility with access to food, water and shelter for the horse. Corrals must be 20' by 20' and 6' high for adult horses.

The adoption rate is $125 for animals less than three years of age. A second animal can be adopted for $25. Animals older than three years are also $25. All animals have been seen by a veterinarian, vaccinated, de-wormed, and blood-tested.
