A Alvin, TX 77511 rescue helping to find loving homes for horses.
1 - 20 of 47 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are located in southeast Texas. We don't transport adopted horses (that is the responsibility of the adopter.) And, if the adopter were to return the horse, again the adopter is responsible for the transportation back to the ranch. This is one reason we do not adopt outside the state of Texas.
Because it is important to us to know that the horse and their new parents are a good fit, we also require that adopters spend time with their prospective new family member which means a trip to one of our ranches :) Adopting because you like the look of a horse or because they have a good profile sets up the horse and adopter for a failed adoption - meaning the horse is returned to us and that is hard on the horse.
We also do follow-ups on our adopted horses! This is an important process as that is how we insure the horse is being well cared for and not in any danger. If you live in a state where we don't have a lot of contacts we have no one to swing by and check on the horse if that is ever needed.
Habitat for Horses is the largest equine rescue organization in Texas. We are accredited by GFAS and continue to meet their strict standards for the care of each animal we bring in. We are a no kill rescue and believe that each animal has value. We have many, many horses to choose from and are very careful about our placements. We want what is best for the horse and adopter alike!
We have a strict policy...you must complete an application and have your background screening done prior to having access to any of the animals! They have come from very bad situations and we must protect them as best we can...
However we do not adopt outside the state of Texas at this time.
All meetings must be set up through the office. Give us a call and set up an appointment. We are open 7 days a week!
