PHOENIX — In an effort to reduce the Bureau of Land Management’s costs to care for untrained wild horses, BLM is now offering a $1,000 adoption incentive.

Anyone who adopts an untrained wild horse or burro from BLM through the new adoption incentive program is eligible to receive the promotion.

BLM says the incentive is available for all untrained animals that are eligible for adoption, including animals at BLM facilities, off-site events and on the Online Corral.

The program also is expected to help combat the growing overpopulation of wild horses and burros in states like Arizona.

Under this program, adopters are eligible to receive:

$500 within 60 days of adoption of an untrained wild horse and burro
$500 within 60 days of titling the animal.

A $25 fee applies at the time of adoption.
