ASPCA Help a Horse Day 2015

ASPCA Help a Horse Day 2015

Throughout the weekend of April 24-26, more than 100 equine rescue groups held events in 33 states in conjunction with the ASPCA “Help a Horse Day” Contest—a nationwide grant competition for equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the work they do to save and care for at-risk horses. Contestants were judged on the creativity of their events, as well as success engaging their local communities. Participating rescue groups also worked to recruit new volunteers, expand their support base, collect donated supplies and find homes for adoptable horses.

We are excited to announce the winners of the 2015 Help a Horse Day Contest, each of which will receive a grant in the amount of $5,000 or $10,000 to support their ongoing efforts to protect equines. The winning groups include:

$10,000 Grand Prize Winners:

  • All About Equine Animal Rescue – El Dorado Hills, CA
  • Horses of Tir Na Nog – San Diego, CA
