Adopting a Rescued
Horse can be the most rewarding and wonderful experience of your life! There's nothing better than knowing that YOU
made a difference in the life of a horse. Whether your adoption horse is facing retirement after a strenuous career
or just needs a change of pace, our horses have a lot of experience and love to give. Regardless of the reason you adopt,
our goal is to satisfy the needs of our adopters and provide our ACER horses with the loving homes they deserve.
We feel strongly
that adopters are some of the best horse owners in the world because they always go that extra mile for their horse.
They prove themselves daily from their first contact with us, to filling out the application form and by providing the
best home and care possible to these great horses. We know that our requirements are stringent but we are looking for strong
people with big hearts that don't give up easily. Our adopters are the type of people who spend their life "being part of
the solution, instead of part of the problem" and we commend them for that. If you think that you have what it takes to be
a part of the best, part of the solution then we urge you to get your application in and join this proud family of animal
lovers and horse guardians, the ACER family.
strive to match our horses with adopters in every way to be sure each horse and its new family is happy. If the horse
you desire isn't on our list, please fill out an application and we'll contact you when a suitable horse becomes available!
We place wonderful horses into good homes for only a
donation. Or a small adoption fee. Giving adopters a chance to have a horse for life that they would never be able to afford
if they were buying.
Most donations or adoption fees are under $500.
By Adopting from ACER you are not only helping the horse you adopt by
giving it a good home but your donation or adoption fee goes to help more horses that are waiting to come into the program
to look for a home.
If you have any questions about
soundness or questions about whether a horse will be able to physically do something, it is advised that you have a vet
come in to do vet checks. We can give you all the information that the previous owner (if known) gives us and any additional
information we can figure out while the horse is with us and though we think all horses are wonderful, we still can’t
guarantee soundness, training levels, or temperment of any adoption horse.
