NEW YORK – This May, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) will celebrate the fourth annual Adopt a Horse Month to help more equines find loving homes. Through the ASPCA Right Horse program, the ASPCA works alongside over 100 adoption and industry partner groups nationwide to massively increase horse adoption in the United States.

"Last year, 400 horses were adopted during Adopt a Horse Month as a result of the tireless efforts of equine shelters and rescues throughout the country," said Cailin Caldwell, ASPCA Right Horse program director. "We are thrilled to continue raising public enthusiasm and commitments to horse adoption and encourage anyone with a passion for horses to get involved by advocating for equine adoption in their communities and supporting their local shelter or rescue."

Animal lovers are encouraged to visit, the ASPCA’s online adoption platform for equines, to find an organization near them to support by adopting, fostering or volunteering. The ASPCA also provides support for equine adoption organizations on ASPCApro, the organization’s platform for training, research and resources to help animal welfare professionals save more lives.

The ASPCA is asking equine advocates and organizations across the country to share adoptable equines on their social media channels using the hashtags #AdoptAHorse and #RightHorse.
