How to Foster and Adopt


At Zebs Wish, we know the value of the herd and understand that our committed and qualified foster homes help expand our ability to serve more special horses, mules, and donkeys.

Please consider your ability to offer this essential service to the rescues!

When I first found out about Zebs Wish Equine Sanctuary, I was an empty nester. The kids are grown and the old horses had passed on. Empty pastures, empty house, empty barn. I wasn’t using my lovely old farm. The barn and my times are now being filled with fostering several with wonderful donkeys, horses, and one mule. I love using my resources for a worthy cause.  With all of the fosters that I have been able to serve, be it for the remainder of their lives or until they find their forever family, I grateful to be able to spend my retirement filling my heart and property with these deserving equines.”

Our adopters are our biggest asset! By choosing to adopt a Zebs Wish rescue horse, mule or donkey, you are agreeing to give one of these very special beings a chance at a perfect ending to their sometimes not so perfect stories.

If you’re interested in adopting a Zeb’s Wish Equine, you can start by downloading the Adoption Application below.  If you’re curious, we’ve also included a copy of our Adoption Contract below.  You don’t need to fill this out yet–just the application.  For both forms, you can either download them, print them, and then fill them in with pen and ink.  Or, you can fill them out electronically and save them with the information saved in the form so you can e-mail them to us.
