    Those who decide to join the Adoption Incentive Program will be eligible to receive $500 within the first 60 days of adopting the animal and the a second $500 within 60 days of titling the animal.

    This program is intended to ease the overpopulation as well as the care costs for untrained wild horses and burros.

    There is a fee of $25 at the time of adoption, and the incentive program applies to all untrained animals at BLM, at off-site events and on the Online Corral.
