On April 26th the ASPCA will be celebrating its second annual Help a Horse Day! In honor of this special day, the ASPCA Equine Fund will be hosting a nationwide grants contest, awarding five $10,000 grants to equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the life-saving work they do year-round to care for at-risk horses. The five groups with the most creative and engaging events on April 26th will win. We have more than 80 groups in 32 states participating, and the competition is fierce, with one group hosting a parade of rescued horses down their local main street and another group having a “horse wash.” One group is even hosting a horse-themed carnival complete with a “kiss the donkey” booth, while another is hosting a rally on the steps of their state’s capitol.
A complete list of participating rescues can be found on our site: http://www.aspca.org/helpahorse.
In addition to the grants giveaway, we’ll be doing a “Help a Horse Photo Contest” for fans on social media to submit photos of their equine companions. Participants will be asked: “How have you helped a horse?” for a chance to win a sponsored prize. For more information on the photo contest, please visit http://bit.ly/1muLXgw.
