ASPCA Hay Bale-Out Helps Equines in Texas and Oklahoma
October 21, 2011
In early October, the ASPCA announced that we’re granting a total of $250,000 to 24 equine welfare organizations and animal control agencies in Texas and Oklahoma as part of our “Hay Bale-Out” program. The funds will provide relief for horses impacted by the high cost and short supply of hay—problems that are largely due to regional drought and wildfires.
“The ASPCA is aware that the hay shortage has placed tremendous hardship on horse and donkey rescue organizations and agencies throughout Texas and Oklahoma,” says Jacque Schultz, Senior Director of the ASPCA Equine Fund. “Our program provides assistance to those who are struggling to feed the horses and donkeys in their care.”
“The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) is grateful to accept this funding from the ASPCA,” states Sandy Grambort, equine and livestock program coordinator at HSNT, one of the agencies receiving a grant through the Hay Bale-Out program. “These funds will help make a difference in the lives of North Texas equines and their owners as the effects of the drought continue to be realized.”
