April 23, 2012--Today, the Equine Network launched Ahomeforeveryhorse.com, a new online source for content about America's horses in need of care and shelter. The site is part of A Home For Every Horse on Equine.com, a collaboration of The Equine Network and The American Horse Council's Unwanted Horse Coalition designed to place, foster and sponsor America's homeless horses.
Purina Mills, Tractor Supply Company and Weatherbeeeta U.S.A and W.F. Young Inc., makers of Absorbine, are leading sponsors of the program.
Efforts began earlier this year to solicit and post free listings for horses available for placement through nonprofit rescue organizations on Equine.com, the industry's largest website for buying and selling horses, trailers and farms. To date, more than 450 equines in shelters across the country are listed on the site. The Equine Network is using its connection with more than 1.5 million horse owners each month to promote the program through its online and print outlets, including this new rescue information online resource.
Ahomeforeveryhorse.com includes articles about: rescue horse success stories, caring for adopted rescue horses, training adopted rescue horses, things to keep in mind if considering adopting a rescue horse and how to help make life better for America's unwanted horses. The site links directly to the horses available for adoption through A Home for Every Horse on Equine.com.
The articles come straight from the editors of America's leading equine publications, such as EQUUS, Practical Horseman and Horse&Rider. "We're excited to be able to offer people who want to learn more about this critical issue one, user-friendly access point for information from trusted sources," said Cathy Laws, Equine Network Editorial Director. "Whether they're looking for step-by-step guidance on nourishing a rescued horse back to health from veterinary experts or simply curious about what types of volunteer opportunities may be available at a local rescue, they can learn about it at Ahomeforeveryhorse.com."
