We are thrilled that you are interested in possibly adopting one of our wonderful minis! We take the adopting out of our minis extremely seriously. As such, we have adoption requirements that all adopters must meet as well as home checks. Please review our adoption information below and contact us if you have any questions.
If you are interested in adopting one of our lovely minis, we ask that you first complete our adoption form. From there, you will be contacted by a So Cal Mini representative who will discuss the adoption with you and answer any of your questions. We strongly suggest that you visit our ranch and meet the minis in person. Each mini has a unique and wonderful personality, and you might be surprised as to which mini you click with.
YES! We take the adoption of our minis extremely seriously. Many of our minis were rescued from poor living conditions, and we want to ensure that they never return to that standard of living and care. As such, So Cal Mini will conduct a home check. Additionally, you must meet the following criteria:
Absolutely. While many of our minis come to us in dire medical need, we will never put up for adoption or adopt out a mini that has not had all the necessary and needed medical attention. You will notice that we have two sections on our site for minis: sponsor and adopt. Minis may always be sponsored to help cover the cost of their medical care, food, grooming, and housing, but only minis we feel are ready for adoption will be available for adoption. As such, all of our adoptable minis have been:
YES! While we do our best to ensure that every mini adopted goes to a wonderful, stable home, we understand that things change. If, for whatever reason, you need to bring your mini back, we will gladly bring them back into our fold, no questions asked. Remember, we are a rescue first.
ADOPTION FEES Start at $750.
At So Cal Mini, we do not adopt out minis that we believe are not healthy in both body and mind. This means that all of our minis will have the appropriate vaccinations, dental care, hoof care, weight, and temperament. When you adopt a mini from So Cal Mini, you will receive their original intake form, indicating how we received the mini; as well as copies of the mini’s vaccination history and other related medical treatments.
Additionally, So Cal Mini does not adopt out male minis that have not been gelded unless they are too young to be gelded. This is non-negotiable. So Cal Mini does not want minis being adopted with the intention of breeding. As such, So Cal Mini will not provide registration papers regardless of whether we are in possession of them.
