Now is the time to see your donation doubled by donating to the Help Our Horses Endowment!
The Equine Protection Fund (Equine Fund), New Mexico’s safety net for hungry and abused horses, donkeys and mules, continues to draw notice for its innovative programs. The Equine Fund is the first statewide animal welfare program available to all equines and since 2010 has helped over 700 equines through its feed assistance and other equine welfare programs.
In response to evident need in our community, the Equine Fund has been given an amazing opportunity by an Animal Protection of New Mexico donor; a dollar-for-dollar matching challenge grant in the amount of $50,000 for the Help Our Horses Endowment. These funds are held at the New Mexico Community Foundation to provide life saving direct services to New Mexico equines into the future. We are working diligently to match this challenge grant in the timeframe required and we hope you will consider supporting this effort with a generous contribution.
The Equine Protection Fund is the state’s only comprehensive equine welfare assistance program addressing the needs of New Mexico’s horses, donkeys and mules and the people who care about them. The programs supported by your donation include:
- Emergency Feed Assistance
- Gelding assistance for stallions, colts and jacks preventing unwanted births
- Providing life-saving veterinary care to equines relieved from situations of neglect or abuse
- Giving humane and compassionate end-of-life treatment for suffering equines
The Equine Fund continues to grow in its mission to provide solutions we can all support. We are dedicated to providing a better life for horses, donkeys and mules across the great state of New Mexico. Comprehensive equine welfare has to be in the interest of all those living in NM, so all equines can live out their lives with dignity.
Please donate now to the Help Our Horses Endowment to make sure horses have feed and veterinary care into the future.
If you prefer donating by mail, please make your check out to “Equine Protection Fund”, with “EPF ENDOWMENT” in the check memo, and mail it to Equine Protection Fund, New Mexico Community Foundation, 502 W. Cordova Rd., Suite 1, Santa Fe, NM 87505.
We need your help now to reach our goal of matching this very generous challenge grant and to help starving and neglected horses. Please help us get twice as much for equines with the greatest need!
Thank you very much for your role in helping us help the horses. They deserve no less.
