Foster A Horse Application

Thank you for your interest in fostering a horse from Begin Again Horse Rescue.  We are looking for people that are committed to caring for the horse they foster and working with it to make it more adoptable.  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 no fee for fostering a horse.  We will pay all veterinary charges, we expect the foster caregiver to pay all other costs.

As part of this agreement, if the horse is to be returned,  the signer of this contract agrees to notify and return the horse(s) to the Begin Again Horse Rescue. The horse(s) cannot be sold or given away.  The horse(s) cannot be used for breeding.

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.
