Volunteering Your Time and Services
The BLM is always looking for people to assist the Wild Horse and Burro Program. Volunteering your time and services is a very rewarding experience and assists the program in educating the public about mustangs and burros. There are many ways you can help to promote the animals -- showcase your adopted and trained wild horse or burro at adoption events; post flyers in your area to help promote local BLM adoptions; provide assistance and guidance to new and inexperienced adopters; or, if qualified, halter-train a mustang or burro to enhance the animal's adoptability. Please check with you local office on how you can volunteer. Please Visit More Information on Volunteering.
