The ASPCA has a 150-year history of protecting equines, and today, the ASPCA Equine Fund (AEF) offers lifesaving resources for equine rescues and sanctuaries and fights for equine protection on the legislative level. Through a combination of financial help and online training and sharing of best practices, AEF supports the organizations and individuals who are saving our nation's horses.
The ASPCA's Help a Horse Day is a national celebration and contest to raise awareness on the plight of horses. Equine rescues and sanctuaries nationwide are joining together from April 21-26 to host events and compete for a chance to win up to $25,000 in grant prizes to assist with their efforts to protect horses. These events are meant to highlight their work in helping horses in need and show community members how they can get involved and help horses too.
PERRF will be joining with the ASPCA to celebrate Help A Horse Day! We are hosting our own special event on April 26st at "Painting with a Twist" in Wexford, PA and we'll be competing for a chance to win up to $25,000 in grant prizes to assist with our efforts to protect and save horses.
Our "Painting with a Twist" event will look like art, but it will be so much fun! We'll have a two-hour painting session, sip our favorite beverages (wine and beer too!) and receive step-by-step instruction on painting from an experienced artist. Best of all, we'll have fun learning how to paint and everyone can take their one-of-a-kind creation home.
PERRF's rescue program is the heart of what we do. All of our horses are obtained from auctions, kill lots, animal control impound, abandonment cases, and owner surrender, and our mission is to save them all, one horse at a time...especially horses bound for slaughter. Please help make a difference by joining us on Help a Horse Day!
Proceeds from this event and any grants awarded will go towards the construction of an all-weather shelter for rescue horses.
If you are unable to attend but would like to you contribute to the success of this superb event, please consider making a donation.
