Horse Adoption Overview

Adoption Overview

Once healthy and assessed, all horses are placed up for adoption to qualified homes. Until a horse is successfully adopted, it does not leave Front Range's care. Horses are not allowed to be bred. Front Range reserves the right to life long follow up. If an adoption does not work out, Front Range encourages the owner to responsibly place the horse in a new home (which must follow Front Range's rules) or return the horse to the rescue. Horses can never be sold at auction. We adopt horses to qualified homes throughout the United States with preference given to those in Colorado or neighboring states. Special rules apply to out of state adopters. Front Range Equine Rescue is not a sanctuary or retirement home. We are available to give owners tips on how to successfully re-home their horses.

Adoption Process

The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an application, read and sign the rules of adoption. You will then be contacted to set up an appointment to see any horse(s) that might be a match. Horses can only be seen by appointment; we cannot accommodate drop-ins or last minute appointments. See "Adopt a Horse" for further details and listing of horses.
