A nationwide listing of horses for adoption for free is available on the TheHorse.com. Equine.com also posts a listing of horses available for adoption at no cost. The latter listing includes horses for sale or lease, while the first listing only lists horses for adoption.
Horses that owners no longer want, regardless of the reasons, are on the rise in this country. This trend makes adoption a growing option in horse ownership. These listings help match current owners with potential owners. Both websites make the disclaimer that anyone wishing to adopt a horse must do her own research on the health and well-being of the animal. All animals listed as free for adoption must be free. Users should report to the respective website any attempt to sell a horse.
