Here at the Kentucky Equine Humane Center we meet horses from all walks of life. Many of them are shown to you on this website. On our geldings, mares, and companion horses pages, you can browse all of the equines who are ready to go to a new home. However, we receive new horses regularly, so if you don't find what you are looking for, we can keep your application on file and you can always check back with us later to see who else has come to Center. Please call us if you are looking for a specific type of horse but do not see it on this website at this time. We might know of a horse that is coming in, or be able to point you toward a horse that would fit you that you didn't expect. Adopting a horse is a very rewarding experience!

Adopting is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3:

Step 1: Fill out the application by either Clicking Here to download and print, scan, and email it or snail mail it, or filling out and submitting the document online Here  (Just be sure to enter your name and email address when asked for authentication) 
Step 2: Send in your $20 processing fee
Step 3: Come pick out your horse

Your application has to be approved, but we will contact you as soon as this is done or if we need more information, within a few days. If we do not have a horse that matches your interest at this time, you can leave your application on file. This way you will be ready to go when you do find your new equine partner!  

Adoption Fees:

Adoption Fees range from as low as $150.- to about $1500.- depending on the

equine's age, health, amount of training, and experience. The average adoption

fee falls between $350.- and $550.-. If you would like to find out the adoption fee for

a specific equine please email us at: info@kyehc.org . Our own cost for housing

and rehabilitating a horse is approximately $550.- per month, including all overhead

​expenses to operate the farm. Adoption fees cover only a small fraction of our

expenses for each horse. This is why our horses depend on your contributions.
