Registration Opens for the Inaugural ASPCA® Adopt a Horse Month!

Equine organizations across the country encouraged to register for the first-ever campaign

Are you a US-based animal welfare organization that adopts out equines? If so, we invite you to join the ASPCA’s first-ever Adopt a Horse Month, a nationwide adoption campaign commencing on April 26th, celebrated as Help a Horse Day, and running through the end of May.

Together with our media partners and industry influencers, we’ll make lots of noise for adoptable equines from across the country to help them find loving homes. Plus, we’ll give you all the tools you need to rock adoptions during Adopt a Horse Month and beyond! Throughout 2020, adoption partners of The Right Horse Initiative found over 3,500 new homes for horses and we are committed to making the first Adopt a Horse Month, and all of 2021, another incredible moment for horses! Interested? Please register at this link by April 9, 2021 at 5 p.m. ET!
