From the start, the ASPCA has put horses at the heart of what we do.
Today we are aimed squarely at improving equine welfare through increasing adoption and transitioning of horses, increasing safety net support and enhancing anti-cruelty efforts from boots-on-the ground work to strong legislative efforts. We work collaboratively with other groups to develop innovative partnerships to reach those goals.
