We’re opening the barn door and asking you to join us this May for the first-ever Adopt a Horse Month!
Like dogs and cats, horses need safe rehoming options. Horse adoption is not yet as common as it is for our smaller animal friends—but we, along with a dedicated team of partners, are working to change that. How? Partially by raising our voices and making the people aware that it is, in fact, possible to adopt a horse, and informing them of the tons of great benefits that come with adoption!
All May long we’ll be shining a massive, Clydesdale-sized spotlight on horses and how horse adoption saves lives. By learning about equine adoption and encouraging others to do the same, you’ll be a hero for horses. And if you don’t want to stop there, we’ve got a hoof full of ways you can get involved and make a lifesaving difference for horses.
Whether you have a desire to get out and visit a barn or want to do good from your couch, here’s how you can get involved and change horses’ lives during Adopt a Horse Month:
