Adoptables

Everything we teach the mules they get a letter grade for, from an F to an A. Each letter grade has specific criteria. Once a mule is routinely getting at least a B grade in all their areas of training, we consider them to be adoptable.

If you are interested in adopting, review our adoption policy then complete our adoption application.

An adoption application must be completed and approved before we move on to the next steps. Please be prepared to pay a non-refundable $20 processing fee along with your adoption application. 

ADOPTIONS OUTSIDE OF TEXAS WILL BE CLOSING ON NOVEMBER 1ST, 2020 AND RESUME IN APRIL OF 2021.

TRANSPORT RATES ARE .50 per mile for the first 500 miles, + $1.00 for every mile after 500 miles. This is from our 2 locations in San Angelo, Texas and Concord, Virginia. Pickup from either location is available.

In addition to the adoption fee, $25.00 is due upon approval for a health certificate. Both are mandatory.
