ASPCA supports Heavenly Horse Haven's Successful Project
"Training Rescued Horses for a New Life"

Anza, CA-Heavenly Horse Haven (HHH) today announced the success of their project funded by the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®).  HHH was granted $3,500 to train horses rescued from crisis situations and increase their chances for adoption.

"Thanks to ASPCA support, fifteen horses were given a focused and sustained training that resulted in seven adoptions," said Gina Perrin, founder and owner of HHH. "Also, three new rescues were added to the program and were subsequently adopted-out quickly."

The grant period of three months provided time to train the eligible adoptees, assess and train the potential new owners, maintain training for the horses more difficult to adopt and train volunteers in handling and riding skills.

"The ASPCA Equine Fund awards life-saving grants and resources to nonprofit equine welfare organizations across the country, and we are happy to be able to assist Heavenly Horse Haven in caring for these horses," said Jacque Schultz, senior director of the ASPCA Equine Fund. "It's heartbreaking to see horses suffering from neglect without food, water and adequate medical care, so it is always gratifying when we can help those who are nursing these wonderful animals back to health."

Since 2007, HHH has provided rescue adoption services for horses and farm animals in crisis situations such as feedlots, backyard abandonment and committed to providing horses and farm animals a safe haven. To learn more about HHH please visit www.heavenlyhorsehaven.org.
