When you sponsor one of our horses, ponies or other animal friends at Horses' Haven, for as little as $20 per month– or more if you can– your support allows us to keep animals unable to enjoy a home of their own. Sponsorship allows you to visit your horse, bring carrots, groom and love and spoil the horse all you want. If you do not live in the area, we have many children visiting who will happily provide all the attention and loving care you would like your horse to have. Sponsorship eases our financial burden and is a great way to put your arms around an animal that really needs you. (Scroll down for details.)

If sponsorship is for you:

• Select the animal you want to sponsor by taking our Barn Tour.

Send a check to Horses' Haven, P.O. Box 166, Howell, MI 48844; indicate which animal friend you want to sponsor. Or simply click the "Donate" button to use PayPal. Please indicate which animal friend you wish to sponsor in the comments section of the form.

You are welcome to visit by appointment only; please contact our sponsor coordinator Diane by email at sponsors@horseshaven.org.

Thank you for your support!

Adopting a horse from Horses' Haven can be a very rewarding experience. Adopted horses seem to take a special hold on your heart and thank you in a million special ways to show they appreciate the new life they have. You can see horses available for adoption by taking our Barn Tour; read adoption success stories here.

To adopt a horse from Horses' Haven, please begin by submitting an adoption application. Questions? Call our office at 517.548.4880 or email us.

Our adoption fees are much lower than the market value of the horse because the home is of the utmost importance. You may expect our adoption fee to range between $200 to $750 based on the animal's age, completed training, etc. We check out the adopter and the facility where the horse will be kept. You cannot sell, trade, lease, auction, etc. an adopted horse. If you no longer want the animal, it always has a home with us. Adopted horses also cannot be used for any commercial purposes such as racing, riding lesson programs or breeding. Because we follow up annually on the care of the animal throughout it's lifetime, we generally adopt animals to homes that are 400 miles or less from the Howell area.

Special Adoption: Horses, ponies and other animals usually not rideable and suitable only as companion animals may be adopted. Some have special medical and care needs; because of their special needs, they are frequently more costly to care for and require a home with a greater level of horse expertise. If you have room in your home and heart to adopt one of these animals, please contact us.
