The ASPCA equine program has grown out of a rich history of horse protection, dating back 150 years to founder Henry Bergh, a pioneer in equine welfare.
Today, the ASPCA has three main equine-related goals:
- Helping horses find homes
- Safety nets for at-risk horses
- Combating cruelty and responding to disasters
The Equine Welfare Program is also home to the powerhouse Help a Horse Day contest, which launched in 2014.
