Pauls Valley Facility

Photo of Man and Young Girl with HorseThe Pauls Valley facility serves as a resting point for animals arriving from the West and being shipped to adoption locations in the central and eastern United States. With 12 pastures stretching across 400 acres of land, the facility provides wild horses and burros a natural and safe environment until they are placed in new homes. The facility can hold a maximum of 600 animals. A drive-up interpretation center situated near the pastures allows visitors to view the animals as they leisurely roam and graze on the land.


The Pauls Valley facility is located on the west side of Interstate 35, approximately 45 miles south of Oklahoma City. Take Exit 74, Kimberlin Road, and go 1/4 mile west to facility entrance and look for signs.


Adoptions are held on site at the facility the second Tuesday of each month from 8 a.m. to noon.

A mixed group of 30-40 animals is offered at each adoption, often including burros and young horses. Call the facility directly at 405-238-7138 to learn specifics about the selection of animals expected to be available at an upcoming adoption. We’re sorry, but the facility cannot accept special requests for specific animals to be made available.

Application approval is required to adopt and can be done on site. Click here for adoption information.
