FREE ADOPTIONS | $5.00 MICROCHIPPING | COGGINS & VACCINE CLINIC
SUNDAY, JUNE 24 AT 10 AM – 5 PM
600 CHARLES MCCLEAREN RD, HOHENWALD, TENNESSEE
Equine adoption agencies all over the country are celebrating the Help A Horse Day contest. This is two months when we all come together to promote horse adoptions. Horse Plus Humane Society is hosting an adoption showcase this weekend. Come watch as trainers showcase adoptable horses for Horse Plus Humane Society and River Edge Farm Horse Rescue. The trainers will also be doing educational clinics and available for questions. All of the Horse Plus Humane Society’s available horses will have waived adoption fees for the day. (This does not include EPAP horses.) There will be food trucks and tack available for sale. Hohenwald Animal Hospital will be available at the event from 1:00 – 4:00 doing a low-cost Coggins and vaccine clinic. We will also be doing microchips for horses. The first 15 horses will receive a free microchip, and every microchip after that is $5. We ask that anyone who would like to do a same-day adoption bring pictures of where you will be keeping the horse, a reference letter from an equine professional, and a horse trailer. Potential adopters will be able to ride horses that might be a good fit for them under supervision.
If you cannot come to this Adoption Showcase you can still participate. We will be doing online Commit to Adopt. For every Commit to Adopt we receive, it will count towards our adoptions in the Help a Horse Day Contest. Every adoption and Commit to Adopt will get us closer to winning a part of the $110,000 in prizes! The Commit to Adopt is $150, and it is a commitment that you want to adopt a horse within the next 12 months. We will transfer the $150 towards the adoption fee from any 501(c)(3) horse rescue within 12 months of making the Commit to Adopt. To learn more about the Commit to Adopt, please click here.
We have done a lot of local advertising and are expecting a huge turnout on Sunday. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for real-time updates!
Yesterday was an extremely busy day with the 21 horses from the auction arriving at our shelter, another horse that would have shipped to slaughter if we did not rescue her, and 7 horses that arrived after being surrendered in North Carolina. To watch the day’s happenings in a video, click here.
We are currently asking for name suggestions for the 21 horses saved from auction thanks to your support! Please participate by suggesting a name, and also “liking” a name. The name with the most likes, that is appropriate, will be chosen. To help name them and to see all the horses rescued at the auction, click here. Click on the photos of each horse and suggest a name in the comments.
