The Adoption Process
Horse North Rescue's goal is to place horses in permanent loving homes. Our adoption process is aimed at finding the best possible homes for our horses.
In order to adopt a HNR horse, an interested adopter must first fill out an adoption application
and submit a nonrefundable $25 dollar adoption application fee.
Should you be interested in a horse that is not currently available for adoption, we encourage you to submit an application so we can get the preliminary site visit and paperwork started. All horses will be given at least two weeks advertised as "available" before the selection process begins.
This application will expire after two years from date of signature or adoption of a HNR horse or whichever comes first.
The dedicated volunteers at HNR will conduct a site visit, check on the references you provide and discuss further with you whether that particular horse will be the most suitable for your family.
Please call or email us with any questions or a meet n' greet with our horses.
Sea Jade is a sweet, 27 year old Throroughbred mare that is seeking a family to enjoy her company as a companion horse or pasture pet. She would do best with a barn and a cozy blanket on the chilly days so she keeps her weight up. Sea Jade is a Special Needs horse and is available for adoption at $125.
This pretty 17yo Paint/Arab mare is healthy and happy and rideable! She has a soft mouth, a great whoa and a super smooth gait. She is finishing up 3 weeks of riding to work on backing, confidence around new objects, and to pick up the trot and canter with more wilingness. Gypsy loves to be around people and is not your typical Arab. She is available for adoption for $500. Set up and appointment to meet her by calling (231)645-4674 and complete an appilication and send in your $25 application fee so we can start the approval process. Videos of her in action can be found on our FaceBook site.
Lucy is a 11 year old APHA beauty that just came back to our rescue. She has just been brought up to date on vaccinations and farrier and is being taken through ground training exercises to be assessed for riding. She is smart and wants to please so it shouldn't take long! Please keep your eye on this website for updates as to when Lucy will be available. Applications plus the $25 non-refundable fee in advance are recommended as we don't think this girl will be in limbo too long.
If you have been looking for a been-there-done-it horse, this 19yo Tennessee Walker/QH mix may be the gelding for you. He has won lots of past ribbons in speed events, jumping, and rides both English & Western. He loves to go thru water and loads very easy. He is gaited and currently undergoing a riding evaluation. BigBoy is around 14.3H and has a calm demeanor. He will be ready for his new home soon. Please fill out an adoption application + $25 application fee if you are interested. Call 231-645-4674 to set up a time to meet him.
