EQUINES FOR ADOPTION

“Horses make a landscape look beautiful.” ― Alice Walker

Our Horse Care Unit cares for many equines until they are ready for new homes, if you see any you are interested in, view the tabs below for more info on the adoption process.

Please note that viewing our equines is done by appointment only. For more information about an equine, Contact us: Lindsay Willis on 0217004173 / Horse Care Unit Manger hcuadmin@spca-ct.co.za 

Adoption Process

  1. View the animals currently up for adoption by visiting our Adoption page here. You can also follow our Facebook page where we regularly post images and updates on the animals as they become ready for adoption.
  2. All adoptions are completed in person at our premises. This helps us assess your suitability and match you to the right selection of potential pets. This may be done be appointment only.
  3. An adoption application will then be completed in person.
  4. A home check is done to ensure that your home will be suitable for the animal.
  5. Once your application is approved and the animal is ready, the adopter can fetch their new equine/farm animal or the SPCA can transport for them at a pre-arranged time at a cost of R8.00 per kilometre (both ways).

(Please allow roughly 7 days for the adoption process to be completed)

PLEASE NOTE: All stallions and colts will be gelded prior to leaving the SPCA unless they are too young in which case an appointment will be made for castration at a later date. No mare will be re-homed to a property with a stallion.

 

The home check
Once you’ve decided which equine you’d like to adopt, one of our pre-placement officers will visit your home. This ensures that your property is a suitable match for the animal concerned. We take into account:
• Other animals in the family.
• Children’s ages
• Level of experience of adopt
• no equine will be adopted out to a property where there is a stallion
• Size of property

The following are also considered as criteria for adoption
• You must be over 18 to adopt.
• Your property must be fully enclosed.
• There must be adequate shelter
• You must be able to afford a private vet and have transport to take the animal to the vet.
