MORE ABOUT THE PLACEMENT PROGRAM

We take applications on a case-by-case basis as we want to assure a good match of equine and care provider.

The WFLF Adoption Placement agreement stipulates that if the adopter fails to meet WFLF Minimum Standards of Equine Care, that the subject equine shall be returned to WFLF.

WFLF's is dedicated to the lifetime safety and wellfare of each horse under its umbrella. Long term placement of equines into new loving homes makes it possible for WFLF to serve a greater population of equines in need. Though optimally qualified equines may receive lifetime care and residency with approved 'conditional guardians', and adopters we understand that circumstances can change, and even the most loving and best intentioned people may at some point become unable to provide the essential care required. WFLF therefore exercises certain safeguards and requirements in the best interest of each equine.

EQUINE ADOPTION - FOSTER - SANCTUARY PARTNERSHIPS

GUIDELINES - POLICIES - QUALIFICATIONS

LERR BNRWFLF's Equine Placement Program is an extension of our enrichment services where horses and people are partners in healing. Qualified Fosters and Adopters can take part in the provision of essential care needed for displaced and homeless equines rescued by the Wild For Life Foundation.

WFLF's Equine Placement Program is founded on our Forever Safe Harbor Mission which assures forever safe refuge for each and every rescued horse and burro under our program. Qualified compassionate adopters, fosters and sanctuary partners like you play a vital role in providing the assurance of safe housing and loving care for the lifetime of each rescued WFLF equine.

Geographic Areas Served
Adoption Placement and Private Sanctuary Partnerships for both wild and domestic equines are currently available to qualified candidates in the Western region of the U.S., including California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Idaho.

Foster Home Placement for domestic equines is currently available in the Riverside, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange County and San Diego areas of CA.

Please email Contact Us if you can be an Adopter, Foster or Sanctuary Partner.


Qualifications for Placement:

Private Individuals:
• Be 21 years of age or older
• Be financially able to properly house, feed, and provide veterinary and farrier care for the animal(s)
• Join WFLF's Safe Haven Network and successfully complete the application process

Transportation is the responsibility of the adoptor. We also ask for an adoption donation, which varies by the breed, horse's disclipline, background and training. Adoption fees start at $500 and range up to $1,000. An adoption donation may be reduced for "Pasture Mates" and some "Companion Horses".

Donations
• Our Adoption fees range between $500-$1000 and are considered a donation to the Sanctuary.
Donations may be made by cash, check or money order. Halters will be put on the animal by the Sanctuary staff if requested, and must be provided by adopters. Your donation is appreciated.

Restrictions: WFLF equines can never be bred, raced, sold, transferred or given away. We are looking for quality lifetime homes for these equines in need. WFLF's title in perpetuity for each equine that it places to private individuals provides the public with the assurance that each equine that WFLF takes in will always be protected regardless of any possible misfortune of the otherwise entrusted 'conditional adopter, foster or sanctuary partner'. If an adopter, foster or sanctuary partner can no longer provide or meet WFLF's Standards of Care for the equine they take in, the subject equine(s) shall be returned to a WFLF facility.

Adopt and Foster to help Domestic Equines in need

Do you have room in your heart and your barn for just one more?

You can help by FOSTERING or ADOPTING a domestic horse or burro in need. Follow the links below to join WFLF's Safe Haven Network. With your help, horses in need can receive a second chance at life and the much needed time for transition into permanent placement down the line. If you have room for a horse in need, or know someone else that does, please contact us directly.  

For every horse that you FOSTER or ADOPT on our behalf, we can save another life. If you love the company of horses and have adequate pasture and shelter, you can help a horse or burro in need.

Domestic equines that have been cleared for ADOPTION and FOSTER are placed with WFLF approved applicants on a first come - best fit basis. Both the background of the horse and the background of the applicant are considered during the placement process.

WILD HORSE PLACEMENT

The Wild For Life Foundation is seeking private sanctuaries – private land owners who are willing to give these symbols of America a place to call their new forever home where they can roam free for the remainder of their lives. Adopters are also sought for wild horse youngsters - If you have room in your barn for one or two more, please let us know!

 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:

Corral
Facilities must meet these requirements and be constructed before your application will be approved:
• An outside corral with a minimum of 400 square feet (20x20) per animal. Corral should not be too large (more than 50x50), as animals are easier to gentle in smaller corrals.
• All fences and gates must be at least 6 feet high for wild horses over the age of 18 months. Five foot high fences are allowed for gentled horses, yearlings, and burros.
• Fencing material should be 2x6 inch wooden planks spaced no more than one foot apart, rounded pipes, poles, or similar materials that do not pose a hazard to the animal. Small mesh, heavy gauge, woven wire fencing with a 2x6 inch board along the top, center and bottom is acceptable. No barb wire, no electric wire, no T-posts, no high-tensile tubing. Once gentled, the animals may be maintained in pastures or in box stalls with daily turnout.

Shelter
Shelters can be a three-sided shed attached to the corral, or box stall in barn attached to corral, allowing animal to move freely between the corral and shelter. Shelter or stall space should be at least 12 X 12 feet per animal.

Transportation
• Adopters. Partners must provide their own vehicles or make private arrangements.
• Standard covered stock trailers and horse trailers large enough for 4 or more horses are generally acceptable, contingent on final approval prior to loading. NO 1-HORSE TRAILERS. Two horse trailers are not allowed unless they are a stock type, with no internal dividers. Animals will ride loose and must have enough space to turn around.
• No pickups with stock racks.
• Lengthwise and slant-load dividers must be removed.
