Guidelines & Application

PPER requires potential adopters to sign our adoption guidelines and fill out an adoption application form by the time of the scheduled appointment to meet the animal(s). Adoptions are done by appointment only.

You can find the adoption guidelines here, and the adoption application here. (Application also available in .doc format). Along with the application, Pasture Pals requires photos of the pasture, shelter, fencing and herd mates to be submitted for review. Please email these required photos along with the signed guidelines and application to

Adoption Fees

At Pasture Pals Equine Rescue our adoption fees have little to do with "appraised value" of the animals, but everything to do with finding the right forever home and helping to fund the feed and vet bills of the rescue. 

PPER does not post adoption fees, because there is no "set" fee. All of the animals are different with different abilities, different personalities, different histories, and different needs. Instead our adoption fees are based on 50% of our monetary investment in the animal, then adjusted for age, health, training, or special needs. With the minimum adoption fee always being what the Feed Lot would get if selling the animal for meat, thus discouraging unscrupulous people from trying to get the animals cheap and resell them to make a quick profit.

Here are some of our equines in their happy new homes!
