Cañon City houses BLM’s largest wild horse and burro holding facility, and is one of five facilities in the nation with a Wild Horse Inmate Program (WHIP).
The WHIP is a cooperative agreement between BLM and the Colorado Department of Corrections, in which select wild horses and burros receive personal and extensive training as part of an inmate rehabilitative program.
The facility takes in horses from throughout the country and can hold up to 3,000 wild horses and burros. On average seven to 10 horses are trained every month and are ready to be adopted.
This facility hosts two adoptions a month; however, adopters must make an appointment in advance. Please contact 719-269-8500 to make an appointment.
