Is adoption for you?
There is no greater gift we can give to our W.H.I.N.N.Y. horses than to have them adopted by individuals and/or families that will love and care for them their lifetime here on earth. The adoption of a rescued equine can be a very rewarding experience. You see, before horses can be seized from an abuse or neglect situation, a foster must be found. For severe cases this requires care during all hours of the day and night. Many times, this is care that only a rescue organization is able to provide. We cannot accept new horses... horses that may continue to suffer otherwise... without adopting out the horses that have been rehabilitated. If you are considering adding a horse to your herd, please adopt.. don't shop. Horses in need are relying on you more than you could ever know.
If you are seriously considering adoption, please start by reading our adoption procedures, which can be found by clicking here.
