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, support and product donations from ASPCA Right Horse Industry Partners, professional advancement, networking opportunities and more.

ASPCA Right Horse Grants
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 aims to realize this goal by supporting programs and processes that increase adoptions, focus on owner relinquishment intake, and/or keep owned horses in their homes through safety net service provision.
In 2024, more than 25 groups received over $600,000 in funding for projects related to increasing capacity, adoptions and safety net programs. Organizations who are an ASPCA Right Horse Partner or in the Warm-Up Ring are eligible to apply.
2024 details and dates will be announced soon.
ASPCA Right Horse Adoption Partners and organizations participating in the Warm-Up Ring are invited to apply for this grant intended to increase the capacity and/or efficiency of programs whose mission is to find homes for retired racehorses.
In 2023, over $200,000 was awarded to adoption organizations who support retired racehorses.
Stay tuned for 2024 details and dates.

Opportunities for Adoption Partners and Warm-Up Ring Participants
ASPCA Horse Adoption Express (HAE)
The HAE program aims to remove distance as a barrier to adoption in two innovative ways. HAE can help you transfer your horses that are having a more difficult time finding an adopter in your region to a partner in another region where demand is higher on a fully-funded transport.
Also, the Transport to Adopter Stipend provides Partners and Warm-Up Ring participants with up to $500 towards hauling costs for horses going directly to adopters that live over 250 miles away, or those who adopt a non-riding horse within any radius.
Core EQ Innovator® Vaccine Donations
Industry Partner, Zoetis, have generously donated CORE EQ INNOVATOR vaccines to ASPCA Right Horse Adoption Partners and Warm-Up Ring participants for several years. Donated vaccines are available to organizations who are up to date with monthly adoption data submission.
Stay tuned for 2024 opportunities.
Microchip ID Equine Donations
ASPCA Right Horse Adoption Partners and organizations in the Warm-Up Ring are given funds and special discounted prices to microchips and scanners through Microchip ID Equine, including their LifeTrac program, creating a lifetime safeguard for adopted horses.
Pinto Horse Association Registration
Register your adoptable equines – of any color or parentage, including longears – with the Pinto Horse Association of America to access special recreational and competition opportunities and rewards. Partners receive steep discounts on membership and registration.
