PHOENIX -- The Arizona Department of Corrections and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management said they will hold a horse adoption in Florence this week.

Officials said up for adoption will be 25 wild horses, 10 wild burros, three saddle-trained horses and two pack-trained burros. The event is set for Friday and Saturday at the Wild Horse & Burro Training Facility.

The Department of Corrections has partnered with the federal government to allow inmates to work with the animals to ensure they're ready for adoption.

A public viewing of the horses and burros begins at 8 a.m. Friday. Adoptions are set for Saturday morning.
