Foster

A Horse

Open your barn and heart to a horse in transition to help create more lifesaving space at the Colorado Horse Rescue facility.

A “RESCUE HORSE”
IS A HORSE.

A “FOSTER HOME”
IS A HOME.

The issue is real. The numbers are staggering. YOU can make a difference. There are an estimated 120,000 unwanted horses in the U.S., and rescues can’t support them all. Our foster program pairs horses in need with individuals and families who have space and care to spare.

CHR typically fosters out non-rideable companion horses. Rideable horses stay at the Rescue so they are more easily visible during the adoption process.

OUR FOSTER AGREEMENT

1

PROVIDE CARE

Adhere to CHR’s Standards of Care, which include food, shelter, farrier care, medical attention and companionship.

2

ALLOW VISITS

Permit a CHR representative to conduct a site visit prior to approval of the foster home, and then again at CHR’s discretion.

3

BUILD A BOND

Embrace and enjoy the companionship of your new foster horse. Their love and gratitude are priceless rewards for your generosity.

BONUS

BENEFITS

  • TAX DEDUCTIONS: Foster families may deduct any out-of-pocket expenses associated with caring for a foster horse.
  • LASTING BONDS: Foster families are always welcome to apply to adopt and become forever homes for the equine companions they were generous enough to take in.

WANT TO SPONSOR INSTEAD?

We understand the commitment that a horse requires. If you’re not quite ready to foster, sponsorship is a great in-between option.
