A Home for Every Horse was created in 2011 in result to a partnership between the Equine Network, the nation’s leading publisher of equine-related content, and The American Horse Council’s Unwanted Horse Coalition. The program provides a resource for 501(c)(3) horse rescue organizations.
The A Home for Every Horse program helps connect rescue horses in need of homes, in over 600 rescues across the United States, with people looking for horses. To make the connection between rescue horses and homes, rescue organizations can list their horses for free on Equine.com, the world’s largest horse marketplace, where they can be seen by 300,000 visitors each month.
Rescue organizations involved with A Home for Every Horse are also provided with many great benefits from the sponsors involved with the program. A Home for Every Horse specifically works with sponsors to help provide much needed assistance to rescues around the country. In recent years, Purina has donated a half ton of feed to eligible rescues through A Home for Every Horse. Zoetis, WeatherBeeta and Tractor Supply provide many great donations to rescues that are featured events attended by A Home for Every Horse staff each year.
Supplement to the many great benefits from A Home for Every Horse, the Equine Comeback Challenge was designed to help provide rescue horses with a solid training foundation and subsequently the opportunity for these horses in need to receive a new job and a chance at a forever home. The Equine Comeback Challenge allows rescue horses to attend full time training with trainers from all over the country showcasing the ability of rescue horses.
Why an Organization like A Home for Every Horse Matters
Equine rescue organizations are overwhelmed with taking care of the ever growing homeless horse population. A Home for Every Horse is dedicated to bridging the gap between rescue organizations and people that can help. Through A Home for Every Horse, over 1,000 horses annually are adopted along with many others who receive assistance from the A Home for Every Horse sponsors.
Participating as a sponsor of A Home for Every Horse, sponsors are not only able to help horses that are seeking their forever home, they are also able to involve the consumer market in helping rescue horses around the country.
