Adoption and Sale Events

The BLM offers wild horses and burros for adoption or purchase at events across the country throughout the year. The most current adoption and sale event schedule is provided below. All times are in local time. 

For better service, it is recommended that potential adopters and purchasers complete an application to adopt or purchase a wild horse or burro and send it to your local BLM office prior to the scheduled event. Visit our Contacts page for contact information. 

Note: Event information shown in local time and subject to change without notice. Please call the Wild Horse and Burro Information Call Center at 866-468-7826 for the most updated information. 

ATTENTION: 

With the phased resumption of normal operations in many states and localities around the country, the BLM is working bureau-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. The health, safety, and well-being of the public, employees, volunteers, and partners is paramount as we begin to restore normal operations. We are increasing public access to wild horse and burro off-range adoption and sale facilities on a case-by-case basis while examining and regularly monitoring each facility and service provided to ensure we comply with current public health guidance.

The following facilities are open for business, subject to certain limitations (e.g. modified hours, if by appointment, social distancing requirements, etc.) which can be found on the individual facility pages.

With public health in mind, the following facilities remain closed at this time:

  • Facility in Burns, OR is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Canon City, CO is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Elm Creek, NE is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Litchfield, CA is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Hutchinson, KS is temporarily closed
  • Facility in Reno, NV (PVC) is temporarily closed
