The ASPCA is thrilled to announce the 12 organizations that won prizes in the 2019 Help a Horse Home Adoption Challenge and will be receiving some of the $150,000 in grants.
More than 170 groups participated in the Challenge and collectively adopted out more than 1,500 equines in a two-month time period! On average, participating organizations saw an incredible 56% increase in adoptions over the same two-month period the prior year.
“We are in awe of the innovative and thoughtful ways this year’s contestants found more homes for horses...contestants knocked it out of the park by adopting out 1,500 horses!”
Now in its sixth year, the ASPCA’s annual Help a Horse initiative has been a meaningful way for equine rescues, shelters and sanctuaries to increase awareness for their lifesaving work to help at-risk horses by competing to win valuable grant funding and other resources. This year, Zoetis US LLC generously donated its new vaccine, CORE EQ Innovator™, for every equine adopted during the two-month challenge period, and Conair® provided more than $300,000 in grooming supplies to be included in prize packages. Additionally, participants were invited to promote their equines on My Right Horse, a public listing site created by ASPCA® Right Horse Initiative for equines in transition.
