Thanks to Alayne Renee Blickle, Program Director with Horses for Clean Water for the following information that might be of interest to you!

For 501(c)(3) equine rescue groups and sanctuaries that have been hard hit by rising hay prices, farm foreclosures and uncooperative weather, the ASPCA has a program that offers help in terms of Emergency Hay Support grants.

This year the equine-related grants have been given to groups in 40 states, including several to groups in the Pacific Northwest, totaling more than $500,000. Funds are just about gone for 2008 and the ASPCA won’t know how much they have to give away for next year until their board of directors meets in late January, but this may still be an option for some groups to pursue.

If you go to http://www.aspcapro.org and click on ASPCA grants and scroll down to the equine section you can read about the two types of equine grants, which are only for 501(c)(3) orgs.

Thanks Alayne!
