Thank you for considering adoption from South Florida SPCA! We ask that you carefully read every detail and fill it out completely in order to be considered as an adopter. All fields are required.
You must be 18 years or older to adopt a horse from South Florida SPCA
Step 1 of 7
Before you begin completing this form, please note that any incomplete application,
including failure to submit requested photos, will not be considered.
If the horse becomes ill and requires medical attention, this can range from a simple vet call and
exam for $100 or could be in the thousands such as colic surgery.
I understand that this is only an application and implies no guarantee of approval to adopt.
South Florida S.P.C.A (SFSPCA) reserves the right to deny any application.
I understand that an adopting party enters into a contractual agreement with SFSPCA to provide
a home for the equine for as long as SFSPCA feels that the adoption is in the best interest of
the equine. I further understand that adopted equines may not be sold, traded, given away,
place in another person’s care, or removed from Florida without SFSPCA’s expressed written
I understand that if I am no longer able to care for the adopted equine, the equine must be
returned to SFSPCA at no cost or recourse to SFSPCA.
Please be advised that a tax-deductible donation will be requested for each adopted equine based on several factors including type of animal, condition, age, care requirements, rideable/
unrideable, level trained, etc.
An SFSPCA Director can advise as to the donation being requested for each available equine.
The donation range for most adopted equines is $500.00 to $700.00; exceptions can be lower
In specific cases, other charges and/or conditions may apply to the adoption agreement.
The signed adoption agreement and donation must be received in order for this agreement to
be finalized and the ownership of the equine transferred to the adopting party.
The horses that I’ve brushed and fed, the cleaning I have done, all to watch a frightened soul stand dreaming in the sun.
My own horses I've neglected but I tell them every day, that I love and cherish them, through a new horse has come to stay.
I know they understand this for in their eyes I see, the love that I have given them come shining back to me.
Some people think I’m crazy, some others think I’m great, but very few can understand what really is at stake.
If I can love and help a horse to find a better way, my life is much more richer that I look forward to each day.
So now you know my secret, it is there for all to see.
