Adopt a Mustang or Burro

Going directly to a BLM holding facility is a great way to adopt, especially if you want one NOW, have something particular in mind (like a certain size, age, or color), 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

For more information, check with the BLM National Website There are currently facilities in Arizona, California Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, & Wyoming.

If you live in the state where the facility is located, you may adopt and take home your new Mustang or burro on the same day. 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.
