BLM HOLDING FACILITIES
Going directly to a large holding facility is a great way to adopt, especially if you have something particular in mind, or don't want to wait for a weekend adoption to come to an area near you.
If you live too far away to go to one in person, most of them now participate in the BLM's regular Internet Adoption
National Wild Horse and Burro Center at Palomino Valley
Special adoption of 25 head of Mustangs ("Color Freaks" take notice!)
If you are from out of state, there will be a short (10 days to 2 weeks usually) waiting period after you adopt before you can take your new horse or burro home. This is due to brand inspection and Coggins test requirements for bringing a horse or burro across state lines. Internet Adoption horses and horses at special adoption events and travelling adoptions are ready to go - all paperwork and tests completed.
Be sure to call to make an adoption appointment.
BLM has wild horse training agreements with state correctional institutions or private contractors in: CO, KS, NV, OK and WY. These locations also serve as adoption centers. To learn more about all permanent adoption centers, please see list below for the closest facility to you!
