Animals Available for Adoption

These animals are available for immediate adoption from Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. If you're interested in adopting an animal, please fill out a Livestock Adoption Application. Deschutes County Sheriff's Office does NOT charge an adoption fee for any of these animals, however, potential adopters must complete an adoption application and pass a criminal history background check. In addition, an on-site inspection of a potential adopter's facilities will be completed to ensure that an adopted animal can be adequately cared for. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office also reserves the right to "spot check" any adopted animals for a period of one (1) year to ensure their continuing health and welfare.  Community members needing more information or interested in adopting one of our animals can contact Technician Mariya Leufven at 541-588-0869.

We also encourage you to view additional horses available for adoption at Equine Outreach, Three Sisters Equine Refuge, the Oregon Humane Society, Humane Society of Central Oregon, or Brightside Animal Center.

Sisco is a mid-teens gelding who is looking for a job and a family to call his own. Sisco came to us in April of 2019 as a neglect case. He will need time to adjust to his new environment and new owner. Sisco is very responsive in the round pen and will go in any direction if the person will set Sisco up for success. Sisco will need a soft hand to continue his training, Sisco knows how W/T/C. Sisco comes off more dominant in a herd environment and proper introduction is a must. He is up to date on deworming, teeth floating, and vaccinations.
