The Homes for Horses Coalition – Advancing Equine Protection

Thanks to all who participated in The Homes For Horses Coalition 2014 Summit in Denver, CO on July 31 and August 1.  It was a great success!

The Homes for Horses Coalition is supported by Animal Welfare Institute, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and The Humane Society of the United States through the Jeannie Dodson Equine Protection Fund.

The Coalition is dedicated to ending horse slaughter and other forms of equine abuse, while promoting growth, collaboration and professionalism in the equine rescue and protection community. There is no cost to HHC membership.

We are a group of professionals working together to actively promote the welfare and protection of horses and other equines. By working to end horse slaughter and other forms of equine cruelty, provide care and homes to horses in need, advance the highest operating standards for equine rescue and retirement homes and promote responsible horse ownership, the Homes for Horses Coalition is actively engaged in improving the lives of America's equines.

Many of the coalition's members operate equine care facilities while others are involved in government policy affecting horses and other equines. We also partner with professionals in the field, including breeders, trainers and veterinarians. The cumulative expertise of our group puts the Homes for Horses Coalition in a unique position to advocate for equines from a highly informed perspective that, most importantly, always puts the welfare of equines above commercial interests.

The Homes for Horses Coalition believes that:

  • Every horse has intrinsic value and deserves humane treatment at all stages in life.
  • The horse industry, including the equine veterinary medical profession, has an obligation to promote responsible horse breeding, ownership and care.
  • Horse owners have a responsibility to provide high-quality, long-term care for their horses.
  • All horses deserve a humane end to life and that horse slaughter is neither humane nor acceptable.

Our Rescue Equine of the Month


Skye Is Looking For That Special Someone
To Adopt or Sponsor Him

Skye is a beautiful Percheron cross-paint gelding. He was born at Equine Voices in 2007 to his mother Tatiana who was rescued from a PMU farm in Canada. Skye was adopted to a nice family shortly thereafter, but due to the economy he has since been returned to Equine Voices. He needs an experienced horse person and training.

Skye resides at the sanctuary and is looking for someone to sponsor or adopt him. Won't you consider adopting or sponsoring this beautiful gelding? If you would like to adopt or sponsor Skye please visit our website Adoption & Sponsorship page. To visit the sanctuary and meet Skye you can contact us at or 520-398-9312520-398-9312.
