FOSTER A HORSE
There are times when the rescue facility is full and we cannot accept all the horses in need of our assistance. If you find you have the space and time to dedicate to a rescue horse, but cannot commit a lifetime to the horse, this may be an option for you! Fostering a horse can make it more adoptable in the future, especially if you have the skills to improve its socialization, training, and health. By becoming a foster home, you create more space at the rescue so we can help more horses find their forever homes!
Begin Again Horse Rescue agrees to pay all veterinary expenses on foster horses, but the foster home accepts responsibility for the routine care and supplies the horse requires. Foster homes must fill out an application, be approved with a farm visit and sign a liability release. While most horses are in foster care, they remain available for adoption and the foster caregiver must make the horse available to be seen by potential adopters. We will also foster out horses who are considered geriatric companions for the rest of their days. These horses are not listed as available for adoption and the foster homes commit to the end of life care they may require.
To apply to be a foster home, please fill out this application and return to BAHR. If approved, we will ask you to sign the foster agreement, linked below.
Foster With Intent to Adopt
If you wish to adopt a horse, but want to make sure the horse is right for you in your home, we offer this option. It is a 30 day foster agreement, at which time the horse’s availability is put on hold. At the end of the 30 days, you may return the horse or complete the adoption. We want every horse to be happy and safe in every home we choose for them, just as much as you want to be happy with your horse!
