Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue and the Dutchess County SPCA Team Up to

Introduce The Lucky Orphans Equine Assistance Program 

Thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA for making this program possible.

 

Dover Plains, NY October, 2017)– Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue, Inc. announced the launch of the Equine Assistance Program at Lucky Orphans, in collaboration with the DCSPCA, through a grant from the ASPCA.

 

Dutchess County is home to over 10,000 horses.  Lucky Orphans and the DCSPCA are joining forces to help horses whose owners may need assistance. By creating the Equine Assistance Program, owners can apply for hay support before horses’ lose body condition or become in need of legal intervention.

 

“The ASPCA knows that when people face economic challenges, it can impact their animals as well, potentially leading to suffering, or the need to find them a new home,” said Matt Stern, senior director of Anti-Cruelty Group Operations for the ASPCA. “The goal of this grant is to both directly help horses and learn more about the impact of short term hay support. We look forward to learning from the work of Lucky Orphans as they help those in their community.”
