ASCPA LAUNCHES NEW CONTEST FOR EQUINE SHELTERS

ASCPA LAUNCHES NEW CONTEST FOR EQUINE SHELTERS

 

$150,000 IN PRIZES AND TONS OF OPPORTUNITIES TO INCREASE EXPOSURE AND SAVE HORSE LIVES

Press Release from ASCPA
March 13, 2019

Exciting things are afoot at the ASPCA. Last year we launched a brand new contest for equine shelters, rescues and sanctuaries aimed at helping find more homes for at-risk horses. We wanted to test a model of a national contest to increase awareness of the great horses who simply need a transition to their new home—and boy, did the equine community lean in!

Equine organizations adopted out more than 1,000 horses during the two-month “Help a Horse” contest period, proving they have what it takes to find more homes for horses. The contest launched on Help a Horse Day, which is held every year on April 26, and ran for two months.

To build on this success, the 2019 challenge has been reimagined and renamed – Help a Horse Home: The ASPCA Equine Adoption Challenge – to help save even more lives. With $150,000 in prizes and tons of opportunities to increase exposure and save lives, the challenge is a tool that can help change the face of horses in rescues.

And here is where we need you!  Registration for organizations to participate in the contest closes on April 4, 2019. Help us spread the word to shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries and to the greater equine community. 

The more groups that participate, the more horses we can save together.  Click this link to share on your social media channels or share via email to your contacts (or even better, do both)!

The contest will once again launch on April 26, Help a Horse Day, and will run until the end of June.  We will be reaching back out to you once the full list of participants is finalized and hope you will be able to support your local organization though adoption, foster, promotion of adoptable horses or volunteering. Thank you!
