Adopt a Horse

We add value to every horse – both their physical and emotional well being

Donate to Horse Shepherd Equine Sanctuary

Every donation will help us continue giving horses the life they deserve!

Looking for Homes

At the Horse Shepherd Equine Sanctuary, we strongly believe we add value to every horse – both their physical and emotional well being.

We take the risk out of buying at the sales for you because each horse that comes to us is given a great deal of time to be loved, handled and assessed. We never rush the process!

Unsound horses are retired at the sanctuary or if possible fostered or adopted as companions only.

All horses are adopted under lifetime contracts and adoption fees vary anywhere from $200 up to $2,500. Our adoption fees are based on the cost to bid to rescue a horse from a saleyard, plus general expenses incurred such as veterinary care, breaking in, transport etc. We are a non profit organisation therefore no profit is calculated at all into adoption fees.

Your adoption fee is a donation back to the Horse Shepherd Equine Sanctuary so that we may continue giving horses the life they deserve!

For more information on our adoption contracts, or enquiries for other horses available that may not be listed here.

Please contact us directly by email, contact form or phoning 0439 624 737.
