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 via Paypal on our website
or by mailing a check to Horse North Rescue, PO Box 76 Kingsley, MI 49649
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 note: All HNR horses are adopted out on a 'right to first refusal contract' meaning if you cannot or should no longer wish to own the horse, HNR must be contacted prior to the horse being advertised or transferred to another home.
Please call or email us with any questions or to arrange a meet n' greet with our horses.
Sea Jade is a sweet, 27 year old Throroughbred mare that has been with HNR for quite some time. She gave to others her whole life and now is our time to give back to her by keeping her safe and comfortable at a foster home where she is a pasture friend to Cassidy. Please consider sponsoring Jade for a month or two as she is our sanctuary horse.
This pretty 17yo Pinto/Arab mare loves to walk and trot but is not keen to canter without a lot of encouragement Gypsy stands about 15.1 hands, has a soft mouth, a great whoa and a super smooth gait. Though she does fine around other horses, Gypsy is fine being by herself and doing her own thing too. She has finished her training refresher and is available for adoption for $500.
Lucy is a 11 year old Paint/QH beauty that came back to our rescue after 7 years of being leased in a former HNR program and pretty much was just a pasture pet. Lucy has just finished her two week riding refresher and she is a rider's dream being soft at the w/t/c. She is quiet under saddle and has had extensive de-sensitizing with balls, wind chimes, umbrellas, and tarps. She is appropriate for an advanced beginner. Lucy is available for adoption for $500. Please submit an adoption application along with the $25 application fee so we can get you pre-approved today.
