December 16, 2010 – Dear Homes for Horses Coalition Member and Interested Equine Rescues:
It is hard to believe that the Homes for Horses Coalition is preparing to host its 5th annual national conference in Orlando, Florida! We are sure that this upcoming event will continue to build on the solid foundation you and so many others have helped establish, making the Homes for Horses Coalition the leading horse advocacy coalition in the country.
The Homes for Horses Coalition is unique when it comes to equine advocacy groups. It is made up of actual horse owners who are involved in all aspects of the horse industry and equine rescues and sanctuaries community caring for and finding good homes for America’s horses. While there are a few other so-called horse coalitions who talk about horse welfare, none bring the actual hands-on involvement, experience and commitment that make the Homes for Horses Coalition (HHC) one of a kind! With your continued involvement, we look forward to building on these accomplishments and making a more substantial difference for the horses in 2011!
In previous years, the HHC conference has been held in conjunction with Animal Care Expo, a trade show and conference for those in the fields of animal care, rescue and emergency services. Next year, the HHC Conference sessions will be merged with Expo, providing HHC members with the opportunity to attend other workshops and events. Be sure to mark your calendar and join us at Expo/Homes for Horses Coalition Conference from May 4-7, 2011 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Chris Heyde – Animal Welfare Institute
