The sight of a carthorse being brutally beaten by his driver spurred Henry Bergh to found the ASPCA in 1866. Since then, our deep-rooted commitment to promote equine welfare and rescue has not wavered.
Today, the ASPCA works to protect and aid horses through legislation, advocacy, education, enforcement of New York City’s carriage horse and anti-cruelty laws, and monetary grants distributed through our member-supported Equine Fund. By donating to the ASPCA Equine Fund, you can be sure that your gift is going directly to thoroughly vetted, professional, equine-focused organizations. Please join us and lend a hand to those who need it most.
