As a Full Circle of Life Horse Shelter our goal is to rescue, shelter, and protect as many horses as we can, no matter what stage of life they are in. Through our grant and assistance programs we are able to provide a safety net and help a larger number of horses across the nation in an effort to keep horses out of the slaughter pipeline.
No horse deserves slaughter - America must do better!

Assistance Available for Private Horse Owners
We understand that there are times that a private horse owner needs a little help for their horse or other equine. Our assistance program helps horses or other equines receive gelding operations, humane euthanasia, and help with natural disaster situations. We do private equine owner assistance globally on a limited basis.
Gelding Operation - Whether you have one stallion or a bunch of stallions that need to be gelded, Horse Plus Humane Society is here to help! Assistance is available of $100 per horse or other equine for the gelding operation. Assistance is paid directly to the veterinarian for the procedure.
Humane Euthanasia - If you have a horse or other equine that needs the Last Act of Kindness, we can help with financial assistance. Making this hard decision is difficult enough, but financial restraints can leave a horse suffering for months. Assistance is available of $150 per horse or other equine needing the Last Act of Kindness. Assistance is paid directly to the veterinarian for the procedure.
Natural Disasters - Natural disasters can leave private horse owners devastated. Floods, Fires, Hurricanes, Tornadoes , etc can leave a horse owner struggling to provide for the horse or other equine. If you have been affected by a natural disaster, we may be able to help. There may be unexpected vet bills due to injury, emergency feed, etc. that is a result from a natural disaster. Financial assistance is paid directly to veterinarians for procedures done, or feed stores. We do not give financial assistance directly to the horse owner.
Grants for Nonprofits
Rescuing equines as a nonprofit organization is financially draining. This can leave well-qualified organizations unable to help equines in desperate situations. Horse Plus Humane Society is dedicated to helping as many equines as possible, that includes helping equines by awarding grants to other equine welfare organizations. We award global grants to equines welfare groups on a limited basis.
Auction Rescue Grants - This grant helps nonprofit organizations by covering the direct cost of purchasing horses at slaughter auctions. This grant does not cover purchasing horses from, kill pans, kill buyer or horse traders. Outside of the United States, purchases at slaughterhouses is permitted. The goal is to save as many horses out of the slaughter pipeline as possible, and help nonprofit organizations with the initial cost (up to $500 per equine & up to 5 equines) by covering the cost of purchasing the horses. The nonprofit can focus on raising funds for the rescued horses quarantine, medical needs and sheltering.
Gelding Operation & Gelding Clinic Grants - Whether your organization just rescued a bunch of stallions that need to be gelded or you're wanting to host a Gelding Clinic, Horse Plus Humane Society is here to help! Grants are available for $100 per equine for gelding operations.
Humane Euthanasia & Last Act of Kindness Clinic Grants - Many nonprofit organizations are unable to rescue equines who need the Last Act of Kindness because they don't have the ability to take on the financial cost of humane euthanasia. Horse Plus Humane Society offers grants for humane euthanasia and hosting a euthanasia clinic for suffering horses. Grants are available for $150 per equine needing humane euthanasia. Euthanasia methods must be in compliance with AAEP.
Urgent Need Grants - This grant is intended to be utilized in a variety of circumstances to directly benefit equines in need, whether that be an individual horse or a herd. This grant is intended to help with intake cost of critical equines needing additional care, intake and sheltering cost involved with animal cruelty cases, natural disasters, etc. The amount of assistance for urgent need grants is determined on a case by case basis. Urgent Need Grants awarded to nonprofit organizations range from a hundred dollars to thousands of dollars.
