Adoption and Foster Programs

Blue Rose Ranch is dedicated to the rescue, training, and care of horses. We have a variety of programs to provide care and opportunity for our horses to have a second chance for a life and a "forever" home.

The Gang Blue Rose Ranch Adoption Program

Blue Rose Ranch trains and rehabilitates horses to the end that they can be adopted to qualified persons who have qualified facilities. We are looking for "forever" homes for our horses, and it is important to our organization that adoptive owners consider the adoption as a commitment. Horses and potential owners are assessed and matched by our staff, and a modest adoption fee, starting at $300.00, is required. The adoption fees do not necessarily correspond to the "value" of the horse.

Age and training are also considered when setting an adoption fee. Qualified horse owners recognize that fees to acquire a horse will be the least expensive part of horse ownership. All adoption fees are utilized to care for other horses at Blue Rose Ranch. Our staff will keep track of our adopted families to ensure that the horses are cared for and that their new owners are happy with the adoption.

Foster/Adoption Program

Occasionally someone visits the Ranch and falls in love with one of our horses, but they live far from the Ranch or do not have facilities to keep a horse. Our Foster Adoption Program is a wonderful way for them to show their love for a horse and support our organization. People agree to foster a horse, taking over some of the financial obligation required to care for a specific horse, but the horse stays at the Ranch where we provide the care.

Lots of Dots!
This frees up funds for Blue Rose Ranch to rescue other unwanted horses. Some people foster a horse until they are able to take the horse to a facility closer to home. Others are happy to foster a horse, but make that horse available for adoption; and if that horse is adopted, they then take on foster care for another horse. This is a flexible program.

Sanctuary Program

The horses we sanctuary are usually older or have a permanent injury, are no longer rideable, and are often companion horses. They are our senior horse citizens. They usually arrive due to a situation such as catastrophic illness in a family, inability of the owner to physically or financially care for the horse, divorce, business failure, foreclosure on the horses' home, etc. Blue Rose Ranch will care and provide a home for that horse for the rest of its natural life or until its merciful death, should it not be adopted or fostered.
