To begin the adoption process you will need to fill out an adoption application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please fill it out completely and make sure your references contact information is correct. Also, please use references that you have known at least 5 years and that will know how to get a hold of you in an emergency.
After being approved you will need to fill out the adoption contract, initial where nesseccary and sign and return before you pick up your new horse. Please read the contract completely to make sure you can comply with the adoption rules and regulations. This is the standard contract, be advised that some horses will have amendments to their contracts.
RMR resale/rehome policies may change with each individual horse.
If you ever have the need to rehome your horse and your horse is eligible to be rehomed in your RMR contract you must have the potential new owners be approved by RMR before finalizing a sale. New owners must also sign the RMR contract which states the same resale policy. If they ever have the need to rehome they must follow the same protocol.
Some owners who donate horses to RMR request that their horses are only adopted to lifetime homes and we try to fulfill that request. These horses will have a no sale/return to RMR clause in their contract. If someone adopts a horse under this no resale agreement and their circumstances change and they are no longer able to keep the horse we request the horse be returned to RMR and rehomed through RMR.
Other horses with a no sale/return to RMR contract will include but not be limited to injured or at risk horses who most frequently end up in bad places.
If you have an questions or concerns about this policy please email
ADOPTIONS FEES WAIVED ON COMPANION ONLY HORSES WHEN A RIDING HORSE IS ADOPTED ALSO.
Adoptions fees for Remember Me Rescue horses are directly put back into our rescue program.

Your donation will be used to buy feed, hay, and take care of veterinary and farrier needs of the horses in our program.
Horses who currently need sponsors
At Remember Me Racehorse Rescue not all horses are easily adopted.
Some of the horses that have been donated to us have multiple issues that have make it very hard to find homes for them. Their age, past racing injuries, and the high cost of special feeds and supplements make these horses 'unwanted'. We are looking for sponsors to help us meet the needs of these aging horses by making a monthly donation in their honor. To donate to the care of one of these special horses please email us at email@example.com
Yeah Me Do's breeders, Roy and Sue Adolfo, recently visited our farm to see him after over 20 years of wondering what had happened to him. They were told he had died after he was claimed from them in the 1980's, you can imagine how excited they were to find out he was alive and well. They now sponsor his care while he is at Remember Me Rescue.
