JULY 2018 UPDATE: We are dealing with a high volume of rehoming requests this summer. Please allow at least one week for us to process your form. We encourage you to continue networking in addition to filling out our surrender form as this increases the chances of your horse finding a safe place to land.
Rehoming your horse is a difficult, often heartbreaking process. With the form listed below, we at Tierra Madre hope to ease some of the logistical pain of contacting different facilities in the hopes that someone – anyone – can help.
Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary has limited space for new intakes. We carefully assess each case in order to determine the best possible solution for the horse needing a home, and 99 times out of 100, we utilize our network of rescues and sanctuaries in the state of Arizona by forwarding them your horse’s information.
In order to appropriately place your horse, we all need to know as much information as possible about your horse’s medical history and any behavioral challenges. Each rescue and sanctuary takes in different horses, and their available space fluctuates throughout the year.
If you have more than one horse to place, kindly submit this form once for each horse needing a home. If your horse is outside of Arizona, please note that you will probably end up paying for transportation and will be asked to submit a Coggins test report prior to hauling.
We will email you once we’ve sent your horse(s) information out to our network, and you will be contacted by anyone who is able to assist. We will follow up with you within a week of contacting our network.
Please note that you, the horse’s owner, will be asked to sign a surrender form that transfers all ownership and care to the facility you ultimately choose. We strongly encourage you to do your research, listen to your instinct, and fulfill your responsibility to your horse by choosing the best place possible for him or her.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call (480) 469 – 9166 or email us at info.tmhs@gmail.com.
Thank you for filling out this form and for your commitment to your horse’s future!
