[Albuquerque, NM] – [March 25, 2024] – In a landmark development for equine welfare, A Home for Every Horse (AHFEH), an Equine Network Foundation program, and the United Horse Coalition (UHC), a critical branch of the American Horse Council Foundation, have strengthened their partnership to better support at-risk horses and their owners throughout the United States. The synergy between the UHC’s mission and AHFEH’s goal to support equine rescue and sanctuary operations promises to amplify the reach and effectiveness of vital resources available to equines nationwide.

As a result of this amplified partnership, rescue and sanctuary organizations seeking support, will only be required to submit one application for joint membership to both AHFEH and UHC, effectively streamlining the previously time-consuming process. This reform allows organizations to invest more time and energy into direct equine care and support.

“The Equine Network Foundation is proud to be expanding A Home for Every Horse in 2024 and sponsoring qualified 501c3’s membership to UHC is just one of the programs we are looking to this year,” said Melissa Kitchen, President of the ENF. “We value the partnership we have with UHC, welfare of the horse is front and center in all that we do, and together we stand by our commitment to help rescues take care of the horses in need.”

Adding to the advantages of this collaboration, 501c3 registered rescue and sanctuary organizations will enjoy these new efficiencies free of charge. Complimentary membership to AHFEH/UHC opens up a world of benefits provided by esteemed sponsors such as Purina, Absorbine, Tractor Supply, Weatherbeeta and Equine Discounts. These sponsors share a common vision for the wellbeing of horses and are committed to driving support to those who are at the forefront of equine welfare efforts.

We are excited to continue to leverage the strengths of both organizations and streamline access to resources for horse owners and at-risk equines. Equally vital is our commitment to bolstering support for the rescues and sanctuaries that serve them.” As, Julie Broadway, President of AHC emphasizes: “We cannot assist one without supporting the other.”

The harmonized membership can now be managed conveniently through the UHC’s Member Portal, which allows for real-time updates to any changes that organizations need to communicate.

Benefits to AHFEH/UHC members include:

Access to Equine Discounts promotions, including Sherwin Williams, John Deere, Big Ass Fans, ODP Solutions, and Farmers Solutions, and more!

The A Home for Every Horse program helps connect rescue horses in need of homes, in over 400 rescues across the United States, with people looking for horses.
