These horses are available for either short term (min 6 months) or long term (until they pass) stays. Foster agreements are for your benefit and the terms are the same as an adoption, but with the tax deduction benefit.
Many are rideable and none require costly medical care. Horses arrive fully vaccinated with a current negative coggins. Foster homes cover their expenses while in their care, i.e., farrier, hay, feed and basic veterinary care. If veterinary care exceeds $500, then Travellers Rest Farm Sanctuary will assume responsibility for that expense at their direction. All tangible foster care expenses are tax deductible.
Horses are placed in fully screened homes within 200 miles of our location (Hughesville, MD 20637). Homes must agree to sign a lifetime agreement. There is no placement fee.
To complete our screening process email us your full legal name, your location, location of where the horse will reside (if different than your location), its intended use, the name and number of your current veterinarian and farrier, and pictures of where the horse will reside (permanent shelter and fencing required along with ample turnout). email@example.com
