**Due to the nature of adopting rescue animals, each horse living at Lucky Clover Rescue may not be adoptable to every home. Some animals are adoptable as companion only. Please fill out an application as this will help us consider which horse may be a match for you and your lifestyle.**

In order to qualify for adopting from Lucky Clover Rescue, Inc. (LCR):

  1. Have already owned a horse and have appropriate experience with such animals
  2. Board the animal(s) at an approved stable, or maintain the animal(s) on your own property where you reside

  3. Be 18 years of age or over

  4. Live within 4 hours of LCR

  5. Out of region applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis

  • At Minimum- Have a barn or lean-to, safe and proper fencing (board or wire mesh is appropriate--not barbed wire), and adequate water/feed supply (including a way to keep water from freezing in the winter) is required. An on-site visit will be made by a LCR representative before an applicant is approved.

  • The applicant must provide the name, phone number and address of their veterinarian, farrier, and person who will care for the animals when the owner is away.

  • The applicant must submit an adoption application in its entirety.

  • Periodic checks may be made of adopted animal(s) by a LCR representative for the lifetime of the horse.

  • Any animal adopted from LCR shall not be moved to a new location or leased or loaned to another person without prior approval from LCR.

  • LCR cannot guarantee any animal(s) as to its disposition or training. Animals which come into our custody are usually untrained. Due to their usually debilitated condition, temperament generally changes with proper care. LCR will include with each adoption a complete file on the animal(s), which will explain how the animal came to be on the farm, what veterinary care it received while it was here and what the staff has personally noticed about the animal's disposition and training.

  • If the equine came to us with registration papers, we retain the papers to help insure the safety and well-being of the equine.

Because certain homes that do not meet our preliminary criteria may qualify to adopt certain animals, please contact us if you have any question about your eligibility.
