Surrender/Crisis Assistance Program
RIVER PINES HORSE SANCTUARY SURRENDER PROGRAM
RPHS’s Surrender Program is designed to help responsible horse owners who have run into a long-term life changing situation, resulting in their inability to provide continued to care for their unadoptable equine friend. Generally, these owners are facing issues such as the death of a spouse, chronic debilitating medical problem, loss of home, or other catastrophic event.
If you have found yourself in a difficult position, we encourage you to fill out a Surrender Application with RPHS. This is the first step in the process.
We cannot guarantee the acceptance of all horses in need of homes, as our facility is always running at or near full capacity.
Each surrender is considered on a case-by-case basis and we accept horses as possible.
Call or email for a Surrender Application now.

EQUINE CRISIS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Are you a devoted horse owner suffering from a temporary financial hardship due to the loss of a job, short-term illness or injury, or other minor set- back in your life? If this burden is affecting your ability to care properly for your horse, RPHS may be able to help.
If you are out of financial options, please consider filling out an Equine Crisis Assistance Application with RPHS. If you qualify for our program, you may be eligible for modest, short-term financial assistance that can be directed towards the day-to-day feeding and care of your equine friend while you focus on getting back on your feet for an agreed upon amount of time.
Qualifying applicants must agree to periodic site visits so we can see that the horse has stayed in its home and is being appropriately cared for.
All relief funds will be sent directly to the service provider; no funds will be forwarded to the horse owner.
Call for help to get an Equine Crisis Assistance Application by calling 406 207 6105.
