Fostering a horse: either temporary or long term;
We need foster â€śparentsâ€ť to help us with recovering horses, and so that we can make resources available for other confiscated animals desperately needing our help. Some horses just need to rest and relax for a couple of months before we can re-home them, some just need to be given a stable routine and good handling.
If you can offer the following: Â· sound equine knowledge Â· stabling and paddocks Â· access to veterinarians Â· TIME to spend with recovering/fostered horses Â· the financial ability to feed and care for horses
While foster care is temporary, re-homing is permanent.
For horses, ponies and donkeys which are sound in mind and body and are of an age that they can be re-homed. If you are in a position to give a horse, pony or donkey a permanent home, please contact us.
Re-homing is a serious business and requires long-term commitment. The procedure is as follows:
1. Complete the prescribed application form below (applicants must be over 18 years old)
Anyone over 18 may make an application or an adult may apply on behalf of a minor on the form provided.
2. The CHCU equines may not be used for commercial purposes and are therefore not placed in riding schools, pleasure resorts etc.
3. Applications will be kept on record at the CHCU for an average of six month period
1. Subject to their suitability, the re-homer will be invited to the Farm to meet prospective equine and to ensure their compatibility.
2. Once placed, the CHCU will inspect the equine unannounced at regular intervals.
1. The re-homer will be required to meet the cost of transporting the equine to their premises and its return to the CHCU if applicable.
FEES AND COSTS
1. No fees are involved other than expenses incurred by the CHCU, i.e. in the rehabilitation of the equine, registration and administrative costs.
2. Whilst in their care, all costs relating to the equine are to be met by the re-homer
1. The CHCU will inspect the equine unannounced at regular intervals.
2. The CHCU maintains the right to remove any equine found to be in ill health or mistreated or if any of the conditions of the adoption agreement is breached.
1. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY THE EQUINE BE SOLD, LOANED, REHOMED OR GIVEN TO ANY OTHER PARTY. IT REMAINS THE PROPERTY OF THE COASTAL HORSE CARE UNIT.
1. All re-homers will be required to sign an Equine Re-homing Policy, which sets out the terms and conditions of the re-homing.)

- a) Remember horse welfare in your will â€“ leave a legacy: Our goal is to provide life-saving care for abused and injured equines, but if we are to try and end the suffering and improve the standards for working equines for the long term, we need to look to the future. We must ensure that we have the resources needed to ease their pain â€” or better still, prevent it from occurring in the first place. We respectfully request that you consider including a legacy in your Will, to the CHCU. In doing so you will continue to help us treat these animals as long as they need it; and also to continue to teach owners how to care for their donkeys and horses.

- c) tribute gifts â€“ for family or friendâ€™s Birthdays or Anniversaries
