Surrender/Crisis Assistance 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.

  • 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.
