We are working with a wonderful new Project Leader, Paul Steblein, at the
Sheldon-Hart Mountain National Wildlife Refuge Complex
We look forward to receiving horses and burros when they gather again
this year. The public in the East love these animals and we will tell you as
soon as we know the arrival dates!
1. You must have ways and means to care for a Wild animal:
Continuous Clean Water Daily
A wood or pipe corral with an attached shelter .(Bring pictures and sizes)
Winter Barriers (windbreaks)
2. You must fill out an application which we must approve
3. TRAILER: an open stock trailer is best. A 3-horse slant-load, with the
partitions removed, is fine. No Two Horse Trailers for horses (burros okay)
4. You must contact the Adoption Center at least three times a year (at 3 month, 6month,
& 12 month intervals) Send pictures and info how your doing with your new horse.
If you have problems or questions, don't hesitate to contact us before that
time period as well. We want each adoption to succeed!
5. HALTER & Lead
Rope. If you want your horse to be haltered before you take him or her home,
bring only a good strong nylon web halter with rope attached (no shipping
If you are interested, call or email for details and current prices and availability!
