Please note there is a charge for adopting an equine from DSPCA. €200 to adopt a horse, €100 to adopt a
pony or donkey. The Adopter agrees to organise Transfer of Ownership after a period of 3 months. A
Transfer of Ownership form is available from the passport issuing body (PIB). The ownership of the equine is
then transferred from the DSPCA to the Adopter. There is small fee payable to the PIB by the Adopter.
At DSPCA we are always looking for suitable foster homes (minimum period of 6 months) to assist us with
grazing & handling. We only foster or adopt out rescues that are safe & good to handle. However, all animals
can be unpredictable & care should be taken at all times.
