Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society's 31 Days of Adoptable Horses for December
Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society in Texas has launched a campaign to find more of our horses adopters. We're hoping to find many of these formerly abused, neglected, abandoned, and unloved horses homes this holiday season. We're featuring a different available horse, donkey, mule, pony, or mini each day. I'm asking that all of our friends and fans share (and ask their friends to share) these horses this month - because if we network, we can find them homes!
Since I've been asking our volunteers to share the horses each day with their friends, message boards, etc., I thought I should do the same!
Our guys are available for adoption in Texas and we'll consider adoption in surrounding states as well. Our website is http://www.bluebonnetequine.org - it has info on our programs, our policies, financials, etc.
In order to adopt, potential adopters must complete and submit an adoption application (unless they are already approved to foster or adopt from BEHS – approved foster homes and adopters do not need to reapply). You can download an adoption application at http://www.bluebonnetequine.org/medi...pplication.doc - you can email it in and pay your membership fee online at http://www.bluebonnetequine.org/inde.../donate/donate or send your membership fee and application via postal mail.
After we receive your application, our adoption coordinator will review it and we will assign a volunteer to come do a ‘pre-adoption inspection’ – this is to insure that our horses go to safe homes. We’re not looking for anything fancy – just safe. Our adoption coordinator will then review the inspection paperwork and photos. If she has any questions or concerns, she’ll talk to you. If not, she’ll approve you for adoption and set you up to visit the horse(s) you are interested in.
Before our horses go up for adoption, they receive vaccinations (VEWT, flu/rhino, rabies, WNV), get a current Coggins test, have their teeth checked and floated if necessary and are on a regular de-worming and farrier program. We also check out any known health problems or lamenesses, and we evaluate their level of training.
