Adopt-A-Thon Event - Reduced Adoption Fees August 1st - 31st
**This Event Has Ended 8/31/16**
PA Racehorse Rehoming Adopt-A-Thon "Clear The Stalls" Event is going on from now thru August 31st, 2016! ALL Adoptable PARR Horses will have their adoption fee's reduced to just $250.00 to Approved Adoptable Homes!
These are beautiful, sound, SHOW-QUALITY ex-racehorses, pleasure/trail types, Amateur friendly, companion types and more. PARR wants to clear out the barn with our Adoptable horses so we can focus on our rehab horses, rescues, and "un-adoptables" with upcoming fundraisers and events. We have some very talented, well bred, sound horses just sitting in their stalls waiting for a new career! Take advantage of this two week "Adopt-A-Thon" in finding your next partner!
Check out our Testimonials and Success Stories on the website to see what some of our past PARR horses are up to these days. We have PARR horses showing in the A' Hunter/Jumpers, Eventing, Dressage, Fox Hunting, Pony Club, Western, Trail Riding, RRP Makeovers, and everything in between! Our current PARR Adoptable Horses want their pictures to show up on the Alumni Page showing off with YOU!
We do have an Adoption Contract (non-auction/slaughter/neglect) that you can view on our website under the Horses / Forms tab. Most of the time, most PARR horses can be re-sold if you are looking for a project to bring thru training, we just require to be notified so that we can keep track of where PARR Alumni are and they don't get forgotten.
Therefore, Professionals and Trainers are WELCOME!
Most of these adoptable horses have pictures, videos, and information on our website already, while others will be added this week! Please be sure to FOLLOW our Facebook Page, and keep an eye on our website to check back for updates.
HOW TO ADOPT - APPLICATIONS - DEPOSITS - & MORE:
ALL interested adopters must fill out the online adoption form (available on our website here: http://www.paracehorse.org/online-application-form.html ) and be approved BEFORE AUGUST 31st, 2016 to be considered for Adoption at the reduced Adoption Fee, and paperwork finalized ASAP following.
If you are interested in a horse, contact us right away and fill out the online Adoption Application Form! Without that application, we can't take any interest seriously for moving thru the adoption process. We choose the best person/home/situation/references, when deciding the match for our PARR horses, not the first app!
PLEASE ALLOW 1-2 DAYS FOR US TO PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION. We are bombarded with apps and everyone here at PARR work full time jobs. We review the apps, the board then discusses which apps match which horses the best, and we move forward from there. We do not adopt on first come first serves basis. If you are declined for adopting a specific horse, please never take it personal. We have to keep in mind the best match for the horse's needs, personality, ability, and what the adopter can offer or is looking for. We do our best to ensure the perfect match and many times that includes turning away many adopters for a horse. Once you are approved, we will contact you and let you know, and we can move forward.
NO DEPOSITS WILL BE HELD until you have been APPROVED for adoption for the horse. A non-refundable deposit of $250 can be paid thru PayPal to hold the horse while you make arrangements to pick up the horse, meet the horse, vettings etc. If you change your mind about adopting, the $250 Deposit will be forfeited as a tax deductible donation to PARR. If you finalize the adoption during our Adopt-A-Thon Event, your adoption fee is paid in full! If after the event has ended, that deposit goes towards the actual full adoption fee for each horse.
Meeting a horse you are interested in:
Horses can not be ridden (for liability reasons of farm owner & volunteers, many are not in regular work, right off track, or not in position for strange person to climb right on, and there is nowhere to ride at main foster farm), but they can be met in person by appointment, seen loose in paddock, lunged (if they lunge), groomed, etc and vettings are welcome. We do have a vet that is happy to do unbiased pre-purchase exams, at a greatly discounted rate for PARR horses, including digital radiographs, at adopters expense. We do not offer trial periods, lease-to-owns etc, but each horse does have it's own terms in the adoption contract in regards to if they can be re-sold and if so with what terms, if horse doesn't work out what has to happen in regards to PARR working with you to find it a new approved home, etc. Please review our General Adoption Agreement here:
but be aware that some horses may have additional terms to the agreements.
There are NO refunds on adoption fees, and adoption fees are tax-deductible donations as PARR is a Federal 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. Please be sure you are READY to adopt a horse, take on the commitment for a lifelong partnership, are financially stable and able to afford proper care, boarding, unexpected vet bills, etc, before getting excited and jumping into an adoption process. If you are under 18 PARR has to speak to a legal parent or guardian AND the person who will be financially responsible for the horses.
