ASPCA Hay Bale-Out Helps Equines in California

October 25, 2011

Los Angeles, CA: In September, the ASPCA announced that they’re granting funds to equine welfare organizations and animal control agencies across the country as part of their “Hay Bale-Out” program. The funds will provide relief for horses impacted by the high cost and short supply of hay—problems that are largely due to regional drought and wildfires.

“The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF), Lifetime Equine Refuge is grateful to accept this funding from the ASPCA,” states Katia Louise, equine rescue and sanctuary manager at WFLF. “These funds will help make a difference in the lives of rescue equines at our rescue and sanctuary as the effects of the drought continue to be realized.”

The ASPCA Equine Fund provides grants to non-profit equine welfare organizations in the United States for purposes in alignment with their efforts to protect horses. The ASPCA Equine Fund grants program seeks to award equine organizations who strive to achieve best practices, including maintenance of updated websites and robust fundraising practices.

The WFLF’s Lifetime Equine Refuge is dedicated to providing lifesaving stewardship to rescue horses in need, and strives to engage the public in learning experiences that inspire advocacy for the prevention of cruelty to animals.
