Partnership Resources & Opportunities
Our ASPCA Right Horse Partners are dedicated to creating long-term, systemic change for at-risk equines using bold, innovative programs to advance equine welfare efforts and increase the number of horses finding adoptive homes each year. We support our partners with resources aimed at reaching this goal. Including grants, product donations from ASPCA Right Horse Industry Partners, professional advancement, networking and social opportunities and more.

The Right Grant
The ASPCA Right Horse’s shared goal is to massively increase adoptions so that all equines in need of support will be able to receive help. This grant opportunity is aimed at helping to realize this goal by supporting programs and processes that increase adoptions, focus on owner relinquishment intake, and/or help keep owned horses in their homes (through safety net programming).
In 2022, more than 25 groups received more than $900,000 in funding for projects related to increasing capacity, intake and adoption.
ASPCA Right Horse Adoption Partners and organizations participating in the Warm-Up Ring are invited to apply for a grant to support an increase in capacity and/or efficiency of programs aimed at adopting out retired racehorses.
In 2022, over $300,000 was awarded to adoption organizations who support retired racehorses.
