Adopting Fostering
Horse Pony Donkey

I consent to the DSPCA contacting me about their Organised Events, Activities & Other Services
We require all applicants to be Garda Vetted. By ticking this box you are consenting to the Garda Vetting process.
I have read and understand this important notice.

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.
