The ROAR results are in!

Thank you to all who supported us in the 2015 Animal Planet R.O.A.R matching campaign. The EQUUS Foundation raised over $92,000 with $43,025 in matching funds from Animal Planet.

These funds will be used to support charities that are operating at the highest standards for the care and use of horses and help us to continue to provide best practices and resources to the over 900 horse rescues and equine therapy organizations across the country participating on our Equine Welfare Network.

However, our work is not done . . .

• There are an estimated 200,000 unwanted horses in the United States.
• Rescue groups can only accommodate 20%.
• Tragically, many are slaughtered. Instead, these horses can be rescued and rehabilitated. Many can be re-trained as therapy horses.
• 50 million people in the United States have disabilities. One in 88 children lives with autism. One in 4 veterans has PTSD.
• Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) are recognized as an effective alternative or complement to traditional therapy.
• Less than 1/100% or about 54,000 people with special needs have access to EAAT.
