NEW YORK, N.Y. — ASPCA Help a Horse Day is celebrated annually on April 26 — a date chosen for its significance to the ASPCA’s long history of horse protection. In 1866, ASPCA founder Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for horse mistreatment.

A national grant competition in honor of Help a Horse Day aims to elevate the work of equine rescues which help at-risk horses that been abused, neglected or find themselves homeless. This year, is the fifth annual Help a Horse Day with a nationwide, two-month contest aimed at finding good homes for horses.

ASPCA research suggests there could be at least 2.3 million adults in the U.S. with the resources and desire to adopt a horse in need. The Help a Horse Day competition will encourage horse rescue and welfare groups to find new homes for horses and commit to helping horses get adopted.
