WESTPORT, CT - September 17, 2012 - Forty-four days remain until Animal Planet’s R.O.A.R (Reach Out. Act. Respond) matching campaign will come to a close. As the newest member of the matching campaign, the EQUUS Foundation is working diligently with Animal Planet to get Helping Horses Heal People’s name and mission out there to help raise money throughout the eight-week campaign.
