What to do?
There is an easy safe way to make sure that your
horse finds a good home and won't go to the auction sales floor, or worse. You
can donate your horse to the Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation.
What does MHWF do?
We are dedicated to finding a life long
home for your beloved friend. Each potential adopter is required to fill out our
application, which we then process to make sure the adopter is qualified to care
for the horse. Once adopted, MHWF retains ownership of the horse for a period of
no less than 5 years, making certain that your donated horse is well cared for.
What will we guarantee?
If you are in the racing industry, we
guarantee that your former horse will never be raced again. For your pleasure or show horse, we will ensure to
the best of our ability that your horse will be loved and cared for, for the
rest of it's natural life.
How is my donated horse going to be
Each spring every adopter is required to send in
a spring Health Report form which is filled out and signed by the adopter's
veterinarian. This form states which vaccinations the horse has been given,
dates of trimming, worming and dental work and
also states the overall health and condition of the animal. MHWF does not turn
over ownership of any horse until that horse has been in an adopter's care for a
period of at least five years. At the end of that five- year period we will do a review
of that adopter to make sure that they have taken proper care of the horse. If
at the end of that five year period, the adopter has sent in all the necessary
paperwork and the horse is being well cared for, we will then turn over ownership of the horse.
