"Hay It Forward" during the months of August and September 2013!
The ASPCA Hay It Forward Project partners with select horse shows and select local feed & supply stores to collect donations for rescued horses in need.
Once the collection days are over, the ASPCA will choose local equine rescue groups to receive the donations at the feed store, which can be used for feed, hay or farm supplies, depending on the need of the groups. The number of groups assisted depends on the amount of funds collected.
How does it work?
For a limited time during a select horse show or equine event, anyone wishing to help supply local horse rescue groups with much-needed hay, feed or supplies can make a cash or credit card donation to the official, designated feed store where the ASPCA will have set up an account. Trainers, barn managers, riders, grooms, owners or any fan of horses or animal welfare who wishes to help are all welcome and encouraged to make a donation of any size—all you have to do is call the feed store or stop by and Hay It Forward in person! Equine Rescue groups need all the help they can get, so every amount matters!
