Beginning Oct. 2, 2023, program to support hay funds of equine rescues and aftercare organizations.
WeatherBeeta and Valley Vet Supply have teamed up to support ‘A Home For Every Horse’ this winter through the Blankets for Bales program. With every eligible WeatherBeeta blanket purchased from Oct. 2 – Nov. 15, 2023, and from Dec. 5, 2023 – Jan. 31, 2024, a bale of hay is donated toward ‘A Home for Every Horse’ and partnering rescue centers.
Horse and Hound Rescue Foundation in Guthrie, Oklahoma was one of 102 Blankets for Bales recipients in 2023.
“With the drought in Oklahoma last year, hay was out of sight. Our budget for hay doubled, and in some cases almost tripled,” says Nelda Kettles of Horse and Hound Rescue Foundation. “To have a program to help with purchasing hay was a godsend. It’s a great program, and rescues everywhere appreciate the help. There is so much need out there; any kind of help we can get is immensely appreciated.”
“Looking back to 2013 when I first learned about our collaboration with ‘A Home For Every Horse,’ it was an unforgettable moment during my early days at WeatherBeeta. The enthusiasm and dedication this program ignited within the WeatherBeeta team was undeniable. At WeatherBeeta, we are fortunate to employ individuals who prioritize animals and their well-being. Their unwavering commitment to worthy causes like ‘A Home For Every Horse’ finds a perfect outlet,” says Doug Walker, WeatherBeeta President, North America & EMEA. “As we approach the momentous occasion of WeatherBeeta’s 25th anniversary in the USA in 2024, I can confidently say that our involvement in this sponsorship has been nothing short of extraordinary. We take immense pride in knowing that we have contributed to the comfort of thousands of horses in shelters nationwide. Our passion for this partnership remains as strong as ever, and we consider it an honor to be part of such a remarkable cause. As we continue this journey, we invite all of our friends in the equine world to join us in making a difference in 2024. Together, let’s provide shelter, care, and love to horses in need, ensuring they find their forever homes. WeatherBeeta remains committed and excited to play its role in this wonderful endeavor.”
