The ASPCA Equine Fund (AEF) is a two-pronged program, offering life-saving grants and distributing information and resources to increase the sustainability and professionalism of rescues and sanctuaries that care for at-risk horses. The AEF provides grants to organizations across the country that work to reduce the suffering of equines at risk of hunger, homelessness and cruel slaughterhouse deaths. Additional funds are provided to humane organizations facing large-scale equine cruelty cases and natural disasters. In 2011, the ASPCA provided 183 grants amounting to $1,682,352 to equine rescue groups across the country.
The AEF also publishes a quarterly e-newsletter with information on fundraising, model programs and best practices in equine rescue and rehabilitation. Thanks to the support of the Rosalind and Franklyn Schaefer family, the AEF offers a series of 14 day-long equine rescue workshops throughout the country from June 2012 through November 2014 aimed at improving the financial health and welfare of those saving the nation’s horses.
