Help America's Horses: Support Low-Cost Gelding
Decades of indiscriminate breeding have led to more domestic horses than the market can bear. Coupled with a poor economy, this has resulted in many horses being neglected, abandoned, and even sold for slaughter.
Low-cost gelding clinics can help responsible horse owners facing tough times properly care for their colts and stallions. Since each stallion creates an average of five offspring in his lifetime, gelding can help reduce the future horse population to a more manageable level - ensuring a brighter future for the next generation of these noble creatures.
"Reception by local horse owners has been overwhelmingly positive to these clinics," said Shirley Puga, head of the nonprofit organization. "There are a lot of responsible people out there who want to do the right thing by their horses, but they are just struggling financially. In fact, we are getting calls and emails daily from desperate horse owners and rescuers, asking us to host a clinic in their community. We are working diligently to expand the program to address as many areas as possible."
You can help. $10 funds a tetanus vaccine, and $50 funds surgical supplies and anesthesia for gelding surgery at a low-cost clinic. The professional veterinary expertise is donated, so your support truly makes gelding a surgery that is accessible and affordable for responsible horse owners.
At the request of horse owners and rescue groups, National Equine Resource Network is working to expand their proactive programs to aide horse owners and the equine welfare community as a whole. The organization currently stages clinics throughout the West.
