Generally, rescues and sanctuaries operate on a very tight budget, barely making ends meet. Any unexpected expense can push their already stretched dollars to the breaking point. This program will help existing (or pending) 501c3 equine welfare organizations that demonstrate a need, to bridge the gap. In turn, this will help horse owners keep horse ownership costs down.

With fewer homes available for horses, it is critical that we work to reduce population growth. NERN is helping to reduce the surplus horse population by providing funding for gelding programs.
