ASPCA Helps Equines Find Homes During Third Annual Adopt a Horse Month

Equine shelters and rescues across the country participating in nationwide adoption campaign commencing in May

This May, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) will celebrate the third annual Adopt a Horse Month to help more equines find loving homes. Through the ASPCA Right Horse program, the ASPCA works alongside adoption and industry partner groups nationwide to massively increase horse adoption in the United States.

“Adopt a Horse Month supports equine rescue groups across the country by bringing unprecedented attention and support to their adoption efforts,” said Christie Schulte Kappert, senior director of ASPCA Equine Welfare. “We encourage anyone with a passion for horses to get involved by advocating for equine adoption in their communities and supporting their local shelter or rescue.”

In addition to highlighting adoptable horses on, the ASPCA’s online adoption platform specifically for equines, the ASPCA will provide guidance throughout the month for adopters across disciplines, at all skill levels and throughout each phase of their adoption journey as well as support for equine adoption organizations on ASPCApro, the organization’s platform for training, research and resources to help animal welfare professionals save more lives.

The ASPCA is asking equine advocates and organizations across the country to share adoptable equines on their social media channels using the hashtags #AdoptAHorse and #RightHorse.
