THINKING ABOUT ADOPTION?

If you see an animal on our website that catches your interest, call the shelter and set up an appointment to see the animal in person and to get more information on that animal's current status. Adoption fees are not posted as they can change during the time the animal is being evaluated.

Prospective adopters are interviewed face to face (no application) and a farm inspection is set up so that we can check out the place where the adopted animal will be kept. Please follow the link below to review the guidelines that will help get you qualified for adoption.

CLICK HERE TO REVIEW ADOPTION GUIDELINES

Upon qualifying, an Adoption Contract is signed by both parties. This contract is a co-ownership that lasts for the life of the animal. An animal adopted from MHARF cannot be sold, traded, or given away. If for any reason the adopted animal is not wanted, at any time, the animal must be returned to MHARF. We do not adopt out stallions and it is usually a policy that mares are adopted with a no breeding clause in their adoption agreement. Furthermore, only under very special circumstances does the Rescue adopt out an animal outside the five-state area - that is, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and the Dakotas.

We also have need of foster homes for the animals in our care. If you are intersted in fostering, please click the following link to read the guidelines.

To contact the Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue, you can do so via e-mail at info@mnhoovedanimalrescue.org or by phone at 763-856-3119. The best time to call is between 7:30 and 8:30 AM. We cannot return long distance calls, so if calling long distance please call back. Please remember that appointments are necessary as there are many, many animals to be taken care of and we must plan/schedule our time to get everything done each and every day.

Horses Available for Adoption | Horses in Rehab

AmariAMARI
This beautiful 1999 14.2hh bay Arabian mare is Amari. She is very sweet, well broke to ride, and is suitable for an advanced beginner. She is healthy and sound and just recently had extensive dental work done (so she will now be able to put on the last few pounds she needs as you can see by her photo).


ArizonaARIZONA
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Arizona was foaled in 2002 and stands 15.3h. She is a beautiful and friendly mare who stands for the farrier and loads and unloads easily. She is currently competing in the 2015 Trainers’ Challenge. If you are interested in Arizona, pre-qualify now to bid on her in the silent auction at the Challenge on September 19th!

Aashilo BarrAASHILO BARR
Shilo is a 2001 bay gelding who stands approximately 15.2hh. He is registered Half-Arab. He is by MP Allabar and out of MS Shahlana. We are told he is broke to ride but have not done a training assessment yet. More info and photos coming soon.



BlackberryBLACKBERRY
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Blackberry is a black mare who stands approximately 14.2 hands and was foaled around 2005. She was part of a 2013 Brainerd humane case. Pregnant when she came in, she was adopted along with her foal but had to be returned. She is not broke to ride and will be participating in the 2015 Trainers' Challenge. We don't know her breeding but she is a stock-type mare. She has a sweet personality and is not dominant in a herd. If you are interested in Blackberry, pre-qualify now to bid on her in the silent auction at the 2015 Trainer's Challenge in September!

BonfyreBONFYRE
Named in the same fashion as her mother, Wyldfyre, Bonfyre is a mare that was foaled in 2008 (see her young photo here) while her mother was at the Rescue. Bonfyre had an unfortunate accident that broke her olecranon (point of the elbow). She's was placed in the capable care of the veterinarians at the U of M who fitted her with a plate so that she was able to grow up big and strong (surgery photo 1 and photo 2 here). Because of the plate, Bonfyre will be unable to participate in high-impact sports like jumping and cross-country, but she can be a great riding horse. As you can see she has grown into a beautiful young lady!

Also, this is a great example of why it's so important to halter-break your young horse as soon as possible. Even though she was in considerable pain from the break, she was an angel to work with thanks to her halter training.

BugBUG
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
This sweet tempered girl is Bug, a cream red dun filly foaled in 2010. Bug and her mom came to MHARF from a humane case in Southern Minnesota. Bug stands 14.1 hands, and was DNA tested as Spanish Mustang. She has a very laid back, mild temperament. Bug is currently competing in the 2015 Trainers' Challenge. If you are interested in adopting Bug, pre-qualify now to bid on her in the silent auction at the Challenge on September 19th!

Celeste CELESTE
Celeste is a 1997 gray Arabian mare who stands 14.3hh. She has a fantastic temperament and is very friendly. She was extremely thin at intake in January 2015. She has now gained quite a bit of weight back and is enjoying the grass at her foster home! We have not yet done a training assessment on her but are hoping to soon.

ChiefCHIEF
Chief (DDC Nado) is a registered appaloosa gelding who was foaled on 2008 and stands 15.1hh. He is a nice gelding and is green broke to ride.

Chutney is a 1999 15hh registered Quarter Horse. He did have some ground work done when he was youngster, but was never started under saddle. He has spent most of his life as a "pasture pony". He is a kind horse, but is a little wary of people since he has not had a lot of recent handling. He is an easy keeper and needs some work to keep him in shape. We would love him to lead a productive life with someone who loves to ride him. Chutney is one of the 3 horses from the rescue program at Truhaven Ranch to be entered in the Trainers' Challenge. If you are interested in Chutney, please contact Candy at phillips1020@yahoo.com or (320)224-5454 for information on pre-qualifying to bid on him in the silent auction during the Challenge on September 19th.

DozerDOZER
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge

Edgar EDGAR
Edgar is a bay pinto Saddlebred colt who was foaled in June of 2014. He came to us extremely emaciated and with a very high fecal egg count (meaning he was loaded with parasites). He spent quite a while at a veterinary hospital and required iv fluids and could not stand on his own (click here to see his intake photo). His attitude was great throughout his ordeal and he recovered very nicely. He is now gelded and we feel he is ready to be adopted out to just the right home.

EmmaEMMA
Emma is a very sweet bay mare foaled sometime in the late 1980's. She came to us as part of a 2013 humane case and was severely underweight. She is a wonderful girl, who is well broke to ride. She neck reins and does best with a curb bit. Her breeding is unknown, but she is very friendly. This mare is very solidly built and definitely has some power and speed. She definitely does not look, act, or feel her age.

EsmeESME
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Esme is a pretty black breeding stock paint type mare who stands around 14.1 hands. She was foaled in 2009. She came to MHARF in 2013 as part of an abandoned herd from a failed breeding program. Esme had aborted her foal in the pasture just days before we were able to get to her. She is currently competing in the 2015 Trainers' Challenge. If you are interested in adopting Esme, pre-qualify now to bid on her in the silent auction during the Challenge on September 19th!

FareedFAREED
Fareed is a beautiful15hh 2007 bay Arabian gelding who successfully competed in the 2010 MHARF Trainers' Challenge. This very nice gelding has a wonderful temperament and is broke to ride (suitable for an advanced rider). We are happy to announce he just recently went back into training with Leanna Giles.

Fiona FIONA
This is Fiona who came in during a late winter 2015 humane case. She is a b-size mini mare foaled in 2013. Fiona was treated for several broken and infected teeth, an infection on her face from an ingrown restraint rope (not a rope halter--just a rope wrapped very tightly around her face), and for a damaged eye. Her hooves were badly neglected, she was very thin, and she was covered in burdock at intake. We don't know what this mare has all endured in her two short years of life so far--but we have done our best to let her know that life can be good! Fiona is now a happy, healthy mare and is ready to find her forever home.

Georgia GEORGIA
Georgia is a 2010 sorrel mini mare who stands 36". Georgia came in with her best friend Pearl (who was originally adopted as a companion for Georgia but now needs to be returned because the adopter can no longer keep her) and we would love to have them be adopted together because they are quite attached to each other. She is gentle and good with kids. Georgia will carry a child on her back when led. She has been laminitic in the past--so she absolutely needs to be kept on a dry lot and fed an appropriate amount of grass hay.

Hans HANS
Hans is a chestnut National Show Horse (Arab x Saddlebred) gelding who was foaled in November of 2011. He stands approximately 15.2 hands and may have some growing to do yet. He has not been started yet but has nice manners and is sweet and friendly. He has potential for show, distance, eventing--you name it. Hans recently cleared a 6' gate at the farm from a stand still--so we are hoping an eventing career may be in his future! Hans has been with us since he was a baby and he would LOVE to have attention from his very own person!

Honey HONEY
Honey is a red dun quarter horse type mare who was foaled around 1997. Due to complete lack of dental care throughout her life, Honey has very little chewing surface left in her mouth. She is considered a "special needs" horse as she will require a specialized diet for senior horses to keep her at a healthy weight. Otherwise she is completely sound and healthy. She is a super sweet mare. We have not done a training assessment on her yet but we were told that she is very well broke. An assessment will be done soon.


HoustonHOUSTON - Truhaven Ranch
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Houston is kind, smart and very quick on his feet. Foaled in 1999, he stands 15 hands and is a registered Quarter Horse. He did have some ground work as a 3-4 year old, but has been simply a "pasture pet" for many years. Houston is one of the 3 horses from the rescue program at Truhaven Ranch to be entered in the 2015 Trainers' Challenge. For more information about pre-qualifying to bid on Houston during the silent auction at the Challenge on September 19th, please contact Candy at phillips1020@yahoo.com or (320)224-5454.

Ivan IVAN
Ivan is a bay POA cross colt who was born in mid-May of 2014. His dam, Sochi, is a 12.3 hh POA (appaloosa x Shetland) from the 02/2014 Wadena County humane case. Ivan is a very curious and friendly colt who is quite athletic. He is learning about haltering, leading, picking up his feet, and all of the other things a colt needs to know to be a good citizen. Even though we don't know who Ivan's sire is, due to his conformation, size, and athleticism we are guessing he may have been a quarter horse--meaning Ivan may mature around 14 hands or taller. This extremely handsome and well-built colt is now ready to find his forever home since hshas now been weaned.

JaggerJAGGER
Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Registered with the Pinto Registry as "Moves Like Jagger", this beautiful 2010 pinto Saddlebred gelding was originally foaled at MHARF when his mother came in during a Mille Lacs County humane case. He stands approximately 15.2hh. He is currently competing in the 2015 Trainer's Challenge. If you are interested in adopting Jagger, pre-qualify now to bid on him in the silent auction during the Challenge on September 19th!

JoJoJOJO
JoJo is a beautiful black mustang mare who was foaled in 2011. She stands approximately 14.1hh and is a solidly built mare. JoJo (trained by Aubreanne Dockter) was the 2014 Trainers' Challenge Reserve Champion! An advanced or intermediate rider is recommended, as JoJo (like most mustangs) is extremely smart and may take advantage of a timid or less experienced handler or rider. However, as she showed us at last years' Challenge--she can be a very nice horse for the right person who has the right amount of experience.

Katya KATYA
Diamond in the Rough Challenge Graduate
Katya came to us from the February 2014 Wadena County humane case. She was foaled in 04/2013 and she already stands 12.3 hands. We expect she will mature around 14 hands.

Graduate of the 2014 Trainer's Challenge
Keno is a very nice buckskin and white pinto gelding who stands around 15 hands. He was foaled around 2007. He is very friendly and has a sweet personality.

Suited to an advanced rider--an experienced youth or smaller adult. She has a slim build and is a high energy horse--so does need supplemental grain.

Student of the 2015 Trainers Challenge
Kipling is a flashy blue-eyed black paint cross gelding who stands 15hh. He was foaled in approximately 2010 and has been handled very little in the past.

Lahab LAHAB
Lahab is a 1991 15hh gray Arabian mare who originally came to us in 2013. She was adopted but needed to be returned because the adopter could no longer keep her. She has been ridden by young people and shown in 4H. Because she is an older horse and of slighter build, we would like her to go to a home where she will be used just for light riding.

Liberty LIBERTY

Marin is broke to drive and has that great snappy hackney pony trot as you can see from her photo. Marin would not be suitable for children at this point as she has a lot of "go" and was not handled as much or as kindly as she should have been in the past. For another lovely photo of Marin standing in harness, please click here.

Shenanigan SHENANIGAN

She is already much larger than her mother, so we expect she will mature around medium-pony sized.

The horses presented in this section have either recently arrived and are waiting for an examination, or have a medical condition that prevents them from being immediately available for adoption. In the case of the latter, there are often excessive medical bills that need to be paid. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, these horses can continue to receive care. Unfortunately, there are usually more horses than there are sponsors.

If you or your organization would like to sponsor one or more horses at the Hooved Animal Rescue, please review the information needed on this form and send an e-mail to info@mnhoovedanimalrescue.org or contact MHARF at (763) 856-3119.

We're always trying to think of new ways sponsorship can benefit the sponsors as well as the horses, so the sponsorship program is currently being re-vamped and tweaked. All sponsors will be sent letters and photos of "their horses" that they can show of to their friends and co-workers.

Horses Available for Adoption | Horses in Rehab

Eclipse ECLIPSE
This beautiful filly was born early in the morning on the first day of spring. Her mother is Triska, a paint cross mare, but we don't know who her sire was. We do suspect that there is some pony in her. She is a friendly and energetic girl and will be available for adoption at weaning time. If you would like to sponsor Eclipse please email us at info@mnhoovedanimalrescue.org


Jazzy JAZZY
This beautiful girl is Jazzy--a 1997 Paint mare who came to MHARF as a surrender because her owner could no longer care for her. Jazzy is not available for adoption yet. She has had some very poor hoof care in the past and will require corrective trimming and shoeing to make her sound. She is definitely worth it, however, as she is a very nice mare! We will keep you updated on her progress. To assist with Jazzy's care or to sponsor her please click here to donate now through Network for Good.

Aashilo BarrJULE ESENCE
Jule is a 1996 gray Arab mare (Tsblack Alsabasque x Bare Esence). She is currently being evaluated for a lameness issue so is not available at this time. More info and pics coming soon.




Norman NORMAN
This good looking gelding was foaled in 2008 and stands approximately 15.1hh. Norman is currently under assessment.







TriskaTRISKA
This pretty paint cross mare is Triska. She was foaled around 2009 and stands 14.3hh. She was pregnant at intake and foaled early on the first morning of spring! (See info for her filly, Eclipse). Triska had been handled very little before intake and is nervous about new things - but she is friendly and curious so she should come around very nicely with proper care and handling. To assist with Triska and Eclipse's care or to sponsor her please click here to donate now through Network for Good.



WillWILL
Will is a 2011 POA (Shetland x Appaloosa) gelding who stands approximately 13 hands. Will needs some time to rest and gain weight before he is available for adoption. Pictures coming soon. To assist with Will's care or to sponsor him please click here to donate now through Network for Good.
