How to Adopt - Equine and Farm Animals

Adoptions are done by appointment only in the Equine & Farm Animal Adoption Center due to the in-depth counseling involved and limited staffing.

Fill out an Inquiry for a Horse or Farm Animal View Our Adoptable Animals


The Equine & Farm Animal Adoption Center is host to a variety of horses ranging in breeds, ages, training, and more. The adoption of a horse is a lengthy commitment, and therefore we take a long, conversational approach to creating matches.

Please note – we do not offer leases or trials on any of our horses.

Our adoption fee for horses varies based on the training, medical, and behavioral needs of the individual horse. The adoption fee includes:

Other Farm Animals

Our adoption process for other farm animals follows the same philosophy as the rest of our adoptable animals in terms of matchmaking for your personal needs. We also will ask for photos of the enclosure/shelter the animal will be kept in as a part of the adoption process and may ask for a veterinary reference.

MSPCA Adoption Fees

Goats/Sheep/Cows: $100-$300

Pigs: $250-$400

Roosters/Other Fowl: $15

Laying Hens: $25

Farm animal adoption fees include:

MSPCA Adoption Philosophy

The MSPCA believes the human-animal bond is important to promote and preserve. We seek to help potential adopters form new bonds that bring the joy and comfort of companionship for both pet and human guardian.

Our adoption program is designed to be welcoming, nonjudgmental, and free of lengthy applications. We strive to engage all prospective adopters in a conversation aimed at matching an adopter’s lifestyle, interests and home environment with an animal’s personality, medical and behavioral needs. Adopting an animal is an extraordinary opportunity to choose your newest family member.  At the MSPCA it is a great privilege for our staff and volunteers to guide that journey for adopters and animals.

As we help to build life-long relationships between adopters and the animals in our care, we also hope to build a life-long relationship between adopters and the MSPCA.  We consider our adopters to be a part of the MSPCA Family; our staff is available to offer guidance and suggestions during the pet’s transition to his or her new home and throughout the pet’s lifetime.
