The United Horse Coalition, American Horse Council Receive Anheuser-Busch Foundation Grant at A Home for Every Horse’s 10-Year Celebration
Boulder, Colo.—Oct 19, 2022—On September 14, A Home for Every Horse hosted their 10-year celebration at Budweiser’s Fort Collins BierGarten in partnership with Budweiser, Purina and the American Horse Council.
Six rescues—Lucille’s Voice, Allegiance Ranch and Equine Rescue, Terolyn Horse Rescue, Colorado Horse Rescue, Mile High Rescue and Drifters Hearts Hope—were in attendance for the private VIP celebration in appreciation of the good works and achievements of A Home For Every Horse’s rescue members over the years. All rescues received 10 bags of Purina feed, 15 Purina feed coupons and various A Home For Every Horse/Purina swag.
The crown jewel of the event was when The United Horse Coalition (UHC), a program of the AHC Foundation, along with its partner, A Home For Every Horse received a $50,000 grant from the Anheuser-Busch Foundation.
“The United Horse Coalition (UHC), a program of the AHC Foundation, along with its partner, A Home For Every Horse (AHFEH), is dedicated to bridging the gap between equine rescue organizations and those that can assist them, and horses and owners in need of help,” stated American Horse Council (AHC) & AHC Foundation President Julie Broadway. “We are very appreciative and excited to put these grant funds from Anheuser-Busch to work to further our mission.”
11,500 pounds of horse feed was donated by Purina Animal Nutrition, a business of Land O’Lakes, Inc.
“Purina Animal Nutrition supports multiple organizations, including those that help horses in need and the people that care for them,” said Michael Jerina, Associate Marketing Manager, Purina. “Having the ability to connect our partners in AHFEH and the Anheuser-Busch Foundation to create a new relationship is a great example of this. Events like today’s check presentation are truly powerful in creating a better world for horses.”
A Home for Every Horse program helps connect rescue horses in need of homes, in over 600 rescues across the United States, with people looking for horses. To make the connection between rescue horses and homes, rescue organizations can list their horses for free on Equine.com, the world’s largest horse marketplace, where they can be seen by 300,000 visitors each month.
Rescue organizations involved with A Home for Every Horse are also provided with many great benefits from the sponsors involved with the program. A Home for Every Horse specifically works with sponsors—including Purina, Absorbine, WeatherBeeta and Tractor Supply—to help provide much-needed assistance to rescues around the country.
