Ching Farm Animal Adoptions

If you are interested in adopting an animal, please visit our website. We do require an application to be filled out, along with possible fees, an interview and references.

To fill out an adoption application online, click here.
To download a form to print from your computer, fill it out, and mail, click here.*
* Requires Acrobat Reader to view

To adopt a companion, schedule a tour to meet our adoptable animals and bring your completed application with you. We will process your application and notify you as soon as we reach our decision.

If you are unable to tour the farm, you can mail your completed application to us at:

Ching Farm Rescue
PO Box 935
Riverton, UT 84065-0935

Please note that NONE of these animals can be adopted out as food. All animals are to be placed in homes where they can be cared for as a member of the family (ie. "pets"), they are not food, they are not for breeding, they are not tools, and they are not to be exploited. We reserve guardianship of all animals adopted out and will take them out of any situation we feel is unfit. If for some reason they do not work out with you, you can bring them back to us with no questions asked.

To adopt other rabbits, go to the Rabbit Rescue website.
To adopt cats, dogs or other animals, go to the Friends in Need website.
