There are a variety of ways you can help at-risk horses in addition to tax deductible contributions. Here are some of them:
Attention Students and Teachers!
Horses have played a major role in our history. Art, history, science, sports, literature, and other areas of study are all suitable for projects or education regarding horses in our lives, past and present. Educational efforts regarding horse slaughter and wild horse protections help get the word out about current crises in the equine world. Be creative and use horses as part of your next in-class project!
Help get our message out to the general public. Please share our Facebook and other social media posts and ask your friends and family to do the same. ‘Like’ our page on Facebook.
Report suspected abuse or neglect of horses to your local humane society or the animal control section in your county sheriff’s department. Report to the officials who handle animal control for the county in which horses are located.
Contact Your Representatives
Call, write or email your Congressional representatives on equine abuse issues such as wild horse roundups and horse slaughter. You can find your elected officials at www.senate.gov and www.house.gov.

Volunteers and Sponsors Getting Creative
Here’s what Juli from Wisconsin did:
“Well I did it! I ran 100 miles in 25 hours. It was an awesome, epic experience and whenever I got tired or discouraged I just thought of all the horses I was running for. This motivated me again and again and got me through the discomfort, the fatigue and the doubt. I knew that each step I took was one step closer to helping another horse be rescued. What was awesome is all the runners I met who once I told them about my goal also pledged to sponsor me. At one moment about 2:00 am I stood in a meadow surrounded by ponds with frogs as loud as a symphony.
I turned off my headlamp and looked up to the heavens and there must have been a trillion stars shining with the moon and the Milky Way so bright. It was as if each of those stars represented every horse past, present and future and I felt as though they were all looking down on me and giving me their blessing. I was 80 miles into the run at that point and I knew I could make the last twenty under that blanket of divine horse energy. Thank you to each and every one of you who pledged your support.”
And THANK YOU Juli for your great effort!
