How To Adopt


HIDDEN VALLEY WILD HORSE PROTECTION FUND's mission to protect and preserve the Virginia Range horses takes more than keeping them out of slaughter houses. We want to be certain our rescued horses are still protected throughout their lives. While we do everything possible to make the adoption process a painless one, we do require a prospective adopter to fill out an adoption application and agree to at least one site visit. Our adoption team needs to know a little about you, your facilities, your experience and your plans for the animal(s) you want to adopt. Don't panic. We're not nasty ogres, we just love our horses and want you to do the same. One of our representatives will be assigned to answer your questions and to guide you through the process. If you're not sure about a question on the application, feel free to ask for help. You can download our adoption application and agreement by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page. Once you have completed the application and agreement, you can either email them to  or mail them to HVWHPF, PO Box 20052, Reno NV 89515.

Our adoption fees are - $125 for one horse - $150 for a mare/foal pair - $175 for an adult pair. 
Since most of our horses were born in the wild, the ages listed for some of our older horse kids must be considered as our best guess. We do not guarantee the age of any of our horses. All of our horses will be listed in a national microchip registry. HVWHPF is the primary contact and the adopter will be the secondary contact. 
All males over the age of 9 months when captured were gelded by the Nevada Department of Agriculture prior to our rescue. Please inquire as to the status of any colt you may be interested in.
Once you have adopted your horse(s), we will do follow up visits to be sure everything is OK with you and your horse(s). Title does not pass to you until at least 12 months after the date of adoption.
Although transportation is the adopters responsibility, we are willing to help facilitate the transport. 
Once your application is approved, we're happy to have you visit our horses. Just give us a few days notice so we can make arrangements to be there with you. If you are able to visit, be prepared to have a fantastic day. We truly look forward to working with you and would love to meet you in person.
