Event Description

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Arizona is seeking good homes for wild horses and burros during its adoption and sale events planned for April 19, April 26, and May 10 at the Florence Prison Complex in Florence, Arizona. 

The events will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Event attendees can arrive at 8:45 a.m. for 9 a.m. gate opening. 

To get to the Florence Prison Complex, travel one mile east on Butte Avenue from the intersection of AZ 79 and Butte Avenue in Florence. Please note that all attendees must abide by Florence Prison Complex visitor rules, including dress code.  

There will be sale/adoption opportunities available for untrained animals throughout the event. Untrained animals are $125, and they will be available on a first come, first served basis. 

Interested adopters can apply online prior to the event through the Online Corral. To qualify to adopt/purchase, you must be 18 years of age, have approved facilities to keep the animal(s), and proper transportation home for the animal(s) from the event site. BLM staff will load each animal, with the new owner’s halter and lead rope, into a BLM-approved trailer provided by the adopter. 

For more information and adoption/purchase qualifications, call the BLM at 1-866-4MUSTANGS (1-866-468-7826) or visit the Florence Off-Range Facility webpage

The BLM offers wild horses and burros gathered from public lands in the West to qualified individuals who must demonstrate humane care for the animal. Wild horses are known for their sure-footedness, strength, intelligence, and endurance. With kindness and patience, these animals can be trained for many uses. All animals available have been examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, de-wormed, and have a current negative Coggins test.
