Stories of Rescue: Your Equine Dollars at Work
The ASPCA Equine Fund provides generous grants to non-profit equine welfare organizations in the United States for the purpose of reducing the suffering of horses, mules and donkeys who have been abandoned or cruelly treated. Grants are typically given as cash awards, sponsorships, executive and technical assistance or training.
The following stories reflect the importance of the ASPCA Equine Fund, while addressing the cruel conditions too often inflicted upon our country's equines.
16 Neglected Horses Rescued in Hawaii
The Kauai Humane Society of Hawaii recently seized 16 horses in their largest cruelty seizure of horses to date. The equines were underfed, dehydrated and in very poor condition. The Kauai Humane Society sought assistance from the ASPCA to help care for these beautiful horses—and we were there to provide funds. Today the once neglected horses, including Tinkerbell, are receiving the proper care, love and attention they deserve. Animal cruelty charges are still pending against their former owner.
