The Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation is dedicated to providing qualified homes for any horse in need. It is our goal to make certain that every horse placed in our care is provided with all the necessary ingredients for a safe and happy life, and that it is also protected from those who would do it harm.
Each horse placed in our care will receive our full efforts to ensure that it never ends up in the auction ring or on the slaughterhouse floor. We promise to do our best to provide only the best homes with dedicated families for every animal we place.
The process of adopting a horse from MHWF is simple! Print out the application and fill that out. Send it in along with a $5.00 processing fee and photos of your farm. Once it is received we will get in touch with you via telephone and will answer any questions you might have, whether they be about our program and policies or a particular horse in our program. (we get back to you quickly!)
If after that phone call both parties feel like one or more of the horses is a possible match, we will set up an appointment for you to meet the horses. If the horse is a match, you may choose to adopt it and take it home after a little paperwork.
1. You must call during our posted hours and not on off hours.
2. You must set an appointment via telephone with us before planning on coming to the MHWF farm.
3. You must be at least 18 years old to inquire about adoption horses or to file an application.
We try our best to make adoption as easy and fun as we can make it. It is for that reason that we have set these policies. Everyone at MHWF is 100% volunteer and has a regular daytime job and we must make good use of our limited time. The people who take their time off to spend with the horses and potential adopters do it because they love it and believe in it. We hope to talk to you soon!
