No Barn. No Land. No Horse Experience? You Can Still Adopt a Horse VIRTUALLY
If circumstances don’t make it possible for you to physically adopt a horse, you can still help by virtually adopting one of our rescue horses, especially one that has been abused, neglected, slaughter-bound horses or wild horses captured by the BLM Wild Horse Bureau and/or the U.S. Forest Service. With a Virtual Adoption you are offering a horse who may have had a poor start in life the chance to be rehabilitated and find a new home.
Rehabilitation can be a long and costly process, a Virtual Adoption, even as little as $10 a month, helps us give them the special care, feed, rehabilitation and training they need.
How Do I Virtually Adopt a Horse?

- You will also receive regular updates on how your horse is progressing and your first and last name will be featured on our Virtual Adopted Horse’s page to acknowledge your adoption.
How Much Does it Cost?
You can virtually adopt a horse from Canham Farm Horse Rescue for as little as $10 per month.
What if my Chosen Horse is Re-Homed?
If your virtually adopted horse is re-homed or adopted we will notify you immediately and ask if you would like to virtually adopt another horse or, if not, cancel your payment.

Maya the Mustang Yearling
Rounded up from a reservation in Nevada, I am a Mustang yearling (pictured on the right next to my now adopted friend Cheyenne). I am lucky to be alive. Untouched by human hands, and now at Canham Farm Horse Rescue in Scotts Valley, volunteers are working tirelessly to build my trust and eventually help me become a wonderful human companion. I am nervous and shy but I’m told I’m as cute as two buttons! Please virtually adopt me. Just scroll down the page and check the box Maya.
My name is ZiZi. I am approximately 13.2 hands. I was confiscated from my original owner in Santa Clara County. I have had one foal, Cupid, who has been adopted. I am very jumpy and scared at times because I have some bad memories. I am available for virtual adoption so I can be cared for while I am being rehabilitated, re-trained. I am slowly learning to trust humans again. Please Virtually Adopt Me so I can Continue my Rehabilitation!
I am Lulu. I am approximately 10 years old and about 13.2 hands. I am really good with children and have even given rides to kids as young as 2 at birthday parties. I am quite sensitive and love to be groomed and loved on. Please consider virtually adopting me, or if you like you can come and visit me. I always love having children around.
Well, hello everyone. My name is Sunset and I fancy myself as quite the comedian. I like to play tricks on Julia and the volunteers by turning on light switches, undoing stall doors, tipping up my grooming bin, and much, much, more. I’m pretty much a permanent resident here. Julia rides me and I get lots of attention. My best friend is Lulu. I’m told I am an Arabian/Saddlebred cross, and that I am a registered half-Arabian. I don’t really care about that. I just love to be fed, groomed and loved on. I’d like to be Virtually Adopted so I’ll feel more loved than I already am!
