A Home for Every HorseWhy an Organization like A Home for Every Horse Matters

Equine rescue organizations are overwhelmed with taking care of the ever growing homeless horse population. A Home for Every Horse is dedicated to bridging the gap between rescue organizations and people that can help. Through A Home for Every Horse, over 1,000 horses annually are adopted along with many others who receive assistance from the A Home for Every Horse sponsors.

Participating as a sponsor of A Home for Every Horse, Purina is not only able to help horses that are seeking their forever home, we are also able to involve the horse community in helping rescue horses around the country.
