Many laws in the US depend on what state you live in. Contracts would normally fall under state law, not federal law. Where I live, the county bar association has a lawyer referral program. Give them a call, describe the problem, and they refer you to a lawyer who specializes in that area. The $35 fee for the referral includes 30 minutes with the lawyer...so about 1/4th of what most lawyers charge. It is a reasonably cheap way to get one time legal advice.
Personally, I'd throw the application in the trash and tell the 'rescue' that when I buy a horse, I own a horse. If they are more interested in the horse than in their power, they'll understand.
