Relinquishing Horses To Indiana Horse Rescue
Each equine will be evaluated by qualified individuals, whether they be veterinarians, farriers, trainers, etc. Adoptable equines will be posted on our website and notices will be sent out across the internet to help find them the best adoptive home. Whether they go on to be a show horse, 4H horse, family pet, kid’s pony, trail horse, companion, or pasture pet we will do our best to place each animal, in the Right home.
If you are referred to us by the Sheriff’s Dept, a Humane Society, or your veterinarian, we may be able to adjust the one time cash donation required when relinquishing a horse, this will be done on a case by case basis. We accept horses with a referral and can sometimes arrange for pick up for a fee. Otherwise a Surrender/Transfer Fee is required for each horse accepted to our facility. This is a one time fee and the only fee we charge.
We require that you complete our Request for Transfer Equine, and Equine Questionnaire, which gives Indiana Horse Rescue ownership of the horse(s) along with turning over any registration papers that identify the equine. These forms have many questions that you can answer to help us find your horse the right home. Written documentation provided by the veterinarian of any current veterinary services must accompany the horse, as well as a list and any available current medications the horse is on along with all registration papers.
Please complete the following documents and if you are transporting the horse to our facility upon approval you may send them with your transporter. We will send you the actual Donation Agreement should your equine be coming into the rescue.
