From the start, the ASPCA has put horses at the heart of what we do.
Today we’re aimed squarely at improving equine welfare through 3 main priorities:
- Helping horses find homes by popularizing horse adoption and increasing support for transitioning of horses
- Keeping horses safe by establishing safety net programs, supporting programs that help prevent horses from needing to be rehomed, and developing Equine Support Centers that provide horse owners with options for their equines
- Preparing for and responding to disasters and other situations that put horses in harm’s way.
How to Get Involved
We work collaboratively with a variety of groups to develop innovative partnerships to reach those goals, and you can help too! Each of the efforts listed has resources to help you learn more about the topic, ways to implement big or small changes into your operations and communities, along with other ways to get involved.
