What is managed admissions?

The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center provides second chances to horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. Harmony serves as a rehabilitation and adoption facility for abused and neglected equines that have been removed from their owners by law enforcement authorities and then began accepting equines from humane societies and rescues in the Midwest and southwestern United States. In 2018, Harmony began opening its doors to privately owned horses in need of rehoming through a managed admissions process.

Shelters across Colorado have committed to this way of caring for animals and, as a result, animals in Colorado are having superior outcomes. Every community has a responsibility to its animals to know the facts and to demand that animals receive the care and respect they deserve.
