Horse Adoptions

Thank you for considering adoption! By adopting a horse, you make a commitment to take care of the horse for the rest of its life.

If you would like to consider adopting, you MUST schedule an appointment to meet and ride the horse that you are interested in. Please email the adoption center staff at frontdesk@humanesocietyhbg.org to schedule your appointment.  We encourage adopters to take their time, as the interaction is an opportunity to observe the compatibility of both horse and rider. We have very limited staff and a small volunteer base, so please be certain you are committed to your appointment time, and are seriously interested in the horse you wish to meet.


Please note: We represent our horses as accurately as possible from our experience with them. But, as experienced handlers, we are often able to easily handle a behavior that an adopter may not. Moreover, the majority of the time we do not have extensive information on the medical or behavioral history of the horses at our farm as the majority come to us as victims of animal cruelty. We learn about the horses as we continue to interact with them throughout their time with us. No single horse is ever perfect, and it is the responsibility of the adopter to determine if the horse is appropriate for their ability and experience.


HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT ADOPTING?

Persons interested in adopting a horse must complete an Adoption Application & Agreement and return it to us either by fax, mail, or email at frontdesk@humanesocietyhbg.org. The Adoption Application requires personal and contact information. Additional information that is required for an adoption application to be processed:

  • Valid driver’s license
  • Phone number and address of stable where adopted horse will be boarded
  • All horse adoptions require a $300 adoption fee. Payment for an adopted horse must be in cash or by credit card.

Pet of the Week

Hiss Magnolia

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/hiss-magnolia-ms-peaches-47098603/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Hi! I'm Hiss Magnolia, a gorgeous 5 year old tortie darling who lost my home because my owners were moving. Don't worry, I don't hiss at all and you'll barely hear a peep (or meow) out of me. My former name was Ms. Peaches, but I like Magnolia, too. The Magnolia flower symbolizes beauty and gentleness, two of my many lovely character qualities. I'm mild-mannered and affectionate, always appreciative of attention and affection. I was sad to lose my home and quite confused and afraid for my first few weeks here. I felt like a withered, drooping flower. I've come a long way, though, and now I come out of my box to be petted and held. I'm eager to love and be loved, so a quiet, calm home would be the best environment for me. I would be a lovely companion if you are on the market for a low-energy cat who just wants to enjoy your company. I may need some time to adjust to my new surroundings, but if you are patient and understanding, I'm sure to be sitting on your lap and rubbing my cheeks on you in no time!

 

 

Champ

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/champ-47038564/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Hi there! I'm Champ, a hunky 3 year old Mastiff/Labrador mix. My family made the difficult decision to surrender me since they could no longer care for me. I would benefit from an experienced family that can further my training and social skills. I am a bigger boy at about 90lbs and very strong! As a result, any kids in my new home should be 12 or older. I need a feline free home, but I like other dogs and played well with the ones I met here. So, if you're looking for a handsome hunk to add to the family, come in and meet me, Champ!
