Group offers help to adopt

February 28, 2000

People interested in adopting horses may call Homeward Bound Horse Rescue Inc. in Boonsboro at 301-416-2817.

You will be asked what type of horse you are interested in and why you want the horse. You can visit the animals kept at R&R Stables.

Several visits will be necessary to establish the compatibility between horse and prospective owner, said Homeward Bound founder Robin Rippeon.

The five members on the group's board of directors will then review your application form, and establish an adoption donation based upon the condition of the horse, she said.

Group members will visit you and the horse two to four times during a two-year probationary period following the adoption.

If all parties are satisfied, you will then be offered the title to the horse, Rippeon said.
