Foster a Horse
Your symbolic adoption is an ideal way to support the horses living wild and free among the Maryland herd on Assateague Island National Seashore. By becoming a foster parent, you are directly involved in preserving one of America’s most loved wildlife treasures and their survival in one of our most fragile natural resources.
