Help Us Give Rescue Horses a Second Chance
There are close to 200,000 horses in need of care and shelter. That’s why Purina sponsors A Home for Every Horse — a program to help find homes for horses in need. Through this sponsorship, we supply participating rescue shelters with the high-quality nutrition developed by the Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center. To date, we’ve donated more than 400 tons of feed.
Purina will donate $150,000 in free feed coupons to rescue shelters participating in the A Home for Every Horse Program. To start, we’re giving $125,000. And you can help us donate the rest.
Just share this page to help spread the word. Each time you do, between May 5 and September 5, 2014, Purina will donate $1, up to an additional $25,000.
Nutrition is Key to Bringing Rescue Horses Back to Good Health
“We don’t always know the history of a horse when it comes to the rescue, and Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed is what we start each horse our with. It’s so important that these horses start out with a food that is easily digestible.
The Improvement in Lucky was that, as she gained her strength back, she also understood she was safe here. She’s a loving, sweet girl.”
Joyce Pomeroy, Last Stop Horse Rescue
Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed was one of many factors that helped these horses' recovery. Purina is proud to assist rescue shelters with one of many resources needed to bring troubled horses back to good health.*
