Anyone who has ever spent any time with a horse knows the unique gift they give us by just looking in their eyes.
Yavapai Humane Society’s Equine Center in Chino Valley, 3731 N. Road 1 W, is an adoption-focused program for horses. Every horse receives health care and training prior to being made available for adoption.
We’re a member of the Equine Welfare Data Collective, and in 2019 we received
the Grand Prize in ASPCA’s Help A Horse Home Challenge, winning $35,000. This nationwide competition for equine rescues and shelters is designed to increase adoptions of equines around the country.
Winners were scored based on the increase in adoptions from the previous year, along with the quality of the promotional content and campaigns on social media.
More than 170 groups nationwide participated, and we are honored to have won the grand prize. We also hosted a state Bureau of Land Management adoption event in April 2019 where all records were broken for wild horses and burros being adopted during a single event.
YHS’s Equine Center thrives through the staff and volunteers who work with the horses every day to make sure they are healthy, eating well, getting exercise and are safe so we can find them their perfect home.
If you’re looking for unconditional love with a horse, Yavapai Humane Society has a variety of amazing horses from which to choose. Horse adoptions are available by appointment at the Equine Center.
