We, Horse Plus Humane Society, will be holding a Free 1-Day Open Door Shelter for horses at Amador County Fairgrounds near Sacramento, CA on February 25th. We offer 1-Day Open Door Shelters for Horses across the United States. 1-Day Open Door Shelters give horse owners the option to surrender their horse without any cost to them. We have done these across the United States and over 400 equines have been surrendered through this program. Last year we did a 1-Day Open Door Shelter in Roseville, CA and 102 horses were surrendered. We will have three+ veterinarians and two+ professional trainers at the event evaluating horses for adoptability based on health / training / behavior. Adoptable horses are placed with reputable 501(c)3 Animal Welfare organizations. Due to the busyness of these 1-Day Open Door Shelters for Horses, we are unable to do adoptions at these events, we rely on Adoption Partners to adopt the horses out after the event.

Become an Adoption Partner – Click Here – We are looking for 501(c)3 horse welfare organizations to partner up to take adoptable horses. We pay Adoption Partners $150 per horse they can take into their program. All the horses will be vet checked and have a trainer’s evaluation done before becoming available to Adoption Partners.
Become a Foster Home – One of our Adoption Partners, Sonoma Action For Equine Rescue, can take more horses if they can get more foster homes in Santa Rosa County, Lake County and in the Sonoma area. They are looking for foster homes that could take 3 or more horses. Sonoma Action For Equine Rescue said that they would pay foster homes for the feed, farrier, and vet expenses.

Volunteer for This Event – Click Here – Want to volunteer at the California 1-Day Open Door Shelter? The 1-Day Open Door Shelter for Horses is a rapid paced, emotionally involved event, and as such, volunteers must be respectful of owners surrendering their horses, be responsible to jobs and tasks given by Horse Plus Humane Society staff and management, and agree to abide by all rules and procedures set forth by Horse Plus Humane Society staff and management. Due to the overwhelming interest in volunteering, we can only accept a limited number of volunteers at this event.
Share the Flyers – Please share these flyers on social media. If you know of anyone who is having trouble caring for their horse or is unable to keep their horse, we encourage you to give them the flyer: PDF Flyer in English – Click Here | PDF Flyer in Spanish – Click Here. You can let horse owners know they can surrender their horse at our event free of charge. We will have a translator at this event for horse owners who only speak Spanish.
