Horse Adopter Due Diligence
Before your horse rescue adopts another horse to a new home, it’s time to consider adding a horse adoption background check as part of the due diligence process for all potential horse adopters.
[Or maybe your organization needs to implement a screening method for the first time.]
Likewise, improve the chances that your rescue’s horses won’t end up needing to be rescued again in the future.
A $35 FRCA compliant background check confirms your potential horse adopter is who they claim, and as a result provides a historical picture of the individual, their past decisions, and any convictions that would make them an unsuitable rescue horse owner, including crimes against animals.
Consequently, animal cruelty can be a low-level crime so it’s more easily hidden.
Flush out animal cruelty records as a result of hoarding, animal abuse, neglect, and animal sex crimes.
Adopt your rescue horses to new homes with confidence as a result of a better way to screen horse adopters.
Easy, Effective, and Secure Horse Adoption Screening
- First, complete your purchase. You will receive a unique order number, a downloadable consent form, along with a link to Horse Authority’s secure background check portal.
- Have the potential horse adopter fill out the consent form legibly, with signature, and return it to you.
- Login to secure background check portal and enter applicant’s information. Keep the consent form for your records.
- Background screening results are provided directly to you, on average, within two to three business days.
Alternatively, you can have prospective horse adopters complete the Self-Background Check and provide you with the results. In this situation, it should be added to the Horse Adoption Screening Form as a requirement.
Horse Authority does NOT have access to any background check results.
