Help Save Horses

Thousands of horses are struggling just to survive. They need a hero.
Funded
How The Funds Have Helped: Thank you to the members who shared and added your support to the Help Save Horses project to benefit needy horses, donkeys, and mules in New Mexico. This fundraiser was coordinated by Animal Protection of New Mexico’s Equine Protection Fund, which provides statewide assistance to needy equines in our state.

All proceeds of this project, which netted over $3,500 from 52 contributors, were applied to direct services for horses in February of this year. The Help Save Horses funding was utilized to benefit three shelters across New Mexico in requests for financial assistance for rescued horses.

The Horse Shelter of Cerrillos, NM specializes in rehabilitating animals seized by law enforcement from situations of extreme neglect and abuse. At this facility, project funding was utilized for veterinary care for four horses named Orion, Figaro, Napoleon, and Dreamer. The latter three horses were gelded (sterilized) by a veterinarian using the Help Save Horses funds. This procedure, to prevent flighty behavior and unwanted breeding, will help the horses’ desirability for future adoptions to the public.

Four Corners Equine Rescue of Aztec serves the northwestern region of New Mexico, a hotspot of equine neglect and abandonment. The facility takes in both owner-surrendered animals and equines seized by law enforcement. With Love Animals funding, five horses from animal cruelty cases (Dandy, Canilla, Breezy, Rose, and Regalo) have been assisted. The horses, given a variety of care by local veterinarians including antibiotics, pain relief, hydrotherapy, teeth floating, and gelding, have been given a new chance from prior suffering.

Horses Cole, Piper, Harley, and an unnamed mare are aid recipients at End of the Road Ranch in Silver City. This shelter serves a rural area in southwest New Mexico by rescuing surrenders and seized animals. The Help Save Horses funding provided for veterinary care including surgery, anesthesia, pain relief, micro-chipping, and Coggins tests.

These shelters, along with seven other licensed horse rescues, serve a vital role in ensuring humane care for domestic animals in our state. Nonetheless, the facilities currently receive no state or federal funding and are forced to rely on private donations and volunteer support. Most of these organizations are non-profits and accept donations—please consider supporting them directly or through our Equine Protection Fund programs (helpourhorses.org).

Beginning this year, New Mexico taxpayers and contributors from any state or country can assist in providing financial support to the state’s licensed facilities through the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund. This new program is supported through voluntary contributions of New Mexico state income tax refunds as well as direct donations. Proceeds from the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund are to be distributed through grants to rescues through the New Mexico Livestock Board. You can view a copy of the state income tax PIT-D form here. Please share information on this new program with your New Mexico friends and family.

Thank you for being part of LoveAnimals.org and your generosity and compassion to animals of all kinds.
