Permanent Lease Application
Thank you for your interest in permanently leasing a horse from Begin Again Horse Rescue. We are looking for people who are committed to lifetime care for the horse they adopt. The only way we can help more horses is if we are able to place our horses into permanent homes. There is no fee for membership in BAHR. We charge a small fee for leasing a horse to help defray the costs of the care for the horses. However, since we finance our operation through private fundraising, a tax-deductible donation is always appreciated.
As part of this permanent lease agreement, the leasing party agrees to take the horse(s), hopefully, forever. However, if the horse(s) can no longer be kept by the leasing party, they agree notify and return the horse(s) to the Begin Again Horse Rescue. The horse(s) cannot be sold, given away, or moved to another location without written BAHR approval. The horse(s) cannot be used for breeding or racing.
Our goal is to find the best possible home for our animals. To help us meet that goal, please answer the following questions to the best of your ability. Your responses will help us to match you with a horse that meets your requirements.
