Help Equine Rescues Win Cash and Feed More Horses

Do you want to help a horse rescue win prize money in your state? Or even feed more hungry horses? You can by helping shelters receive grants through TheAnimalRescuesite.com. There is a national contest, as well as ongoing charitable giving.

One of the hosts of this contest is PetFinder.com. You will notice our Adoptable Horse link on the left-hand side of every page of TheHorse.com has a link to a horse needing a home through the PetFinder site.

Days End Farm Horse Rescue issued a press release stating it is racing to secure votes in this national online shelter challenge. First prize is $25,000 for the most votes in the nation, with a $1,000 prize for first place in each state. While Days End is currently holding first place in its home state, the farm is asking for help to win first prize. 

“It’s really simple … one click of your mouse, every single day, can help feed starving horses,” said Susan  Mitchell, development director for Days End. “You don’t have to spend a penny, just ask your friends to vote each day and bring Days End one step closer to a much needed $25,000 prize.

"Go to AnimalRescueSite.com to vote once each day," the Days End release stated. "Voting ends at midnight (PST) Dec. 14. The more friends you can rally to vote, the better chance Days End has of succeeding.

"The farm intends to use the prize money to bring much-needed electricity to the barn and pasture areas," noted the Days End release. "At a minimum, bringing heat capabilities to all of the horses’ water sources is vital at this time of year. Without heated water, water sources will freeze and farm staff will be breaking ice for the horses several times a day all winter."

Days End Farm Horse Rescue is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization. For more information, visit defhr.org, email info@defhr.org, or call 301/854-5037 or 410/442-1564.
