Equine Adoptions

View Available Horses

We give horses and donkeys a fighting chance.

As the city’s original and largest animal protection organization, the Houston SPCA is well known for the rescue, care, and adoption of thousands of companion animals each year, but our lifesaving work with animals began with rescuing horses 100 years ago.

These days, the Houston SPCA rescues 400-600 horses annually through cruelty investigation, and we normally have more than 60 horses in care on any given day — most of which have never known kind hands or adequate care and training. We also collaborate with other equine rescue groups across the state when they cannot place animals in adoptive homes.  The new Dr. Amy Alexander Equine Care Center includes a covered rescue arena, round pen, seven paddocks, and a 26-stall barn.

Our highly-trained and dedicated Equine Team spends months rehabilitating horses medically and nutritionally and we train once-neglected and abused animals so they will have the best and brightest futures possible as we work to help them become safe, loving companions. Houston SPCA works hard to match adopters to the horses’ skill levels, placing more forgiving horses with people who are still learning how to care for one.
