Adoption Contract The adoption contract allows New Vocations to track each horse’s progress for a year. Adopters are required to send in three photo and written updates, which are forwarded to the donor of each horse. In the event a horse is determined by the adopter to be unsuitable within sixty days following the receipt of physical possession of the horse, the adopter may return the horse to New Vocations in exchange for a credit equal to the adoption fee. Provided, however, that New Vocations shall be entitled to retake possession of the adopted horse without granting a credit to the adopter in the event the horse’s physical condition has changed while in the possession of the adopter. In either case the adopter is responsible for providing transportation for the horse to return to the program.
Please fill out and sign the adoption contract and either email or fax the contract to the New Vocations facility where the adopted horse is located. The contact information for each facility is located on the third page of the adoption contract. Conformation of receipt for both the adoption contract and adoption fee must be made before the adopter or shipping company may pickup horse. A copy of the adoption contract that is also signed by a New Vocations employee will be included in the go-home packet which will be sent with the horse.
Boarding Agreement If the horse will be kept at a boarding facility, the owner of that facility will need to fill out and sign the boarding agreement. Please send the agreement along with the adoption contract.
Return Policy If an adopted horse is no longer wanted by the adopter and it is beyond the sixty day trial but before twelve months from adoption New Vocations must be contacted. New Vocations will help assist in finding the horse a new home or the horse may return to the facility it was adopted from once space is available.
Third Party Bill of Sale After twelve months from the adoption date and adopter may sell the horse to a third party but must send a Bill of Sale to New Vocations. This form will help ensure that the third party is aware that the horse shall not be placed in training as a racehorse, entered in a race, offered for sale at public auction or used as a means of transportation on any public roadway. It also makes them aware that New Vocations is available to help if the horse is ever in need of a home in the future.
