THE CHARITY: The Dallas Harvest Horse Show is a very active supporter and contributor to Habitat for Horses. This charity has been in operation for the past 10 years. Habitat for Horses is an instrumental organization that saves distressed horses and provides a safe and secure home while rehabilitating them for adoption. Habitat for Horses is the largest equine protection organization in the country.
Habitat works hand-in-hand with law enforcement to uphold all animal cruelty laws and seek justice for those who mistreat horses. Though the wonderful employees and volunteers of the organization, Habitat for Horses has created and implemented educational outreach programs. Their facility creates a sanctuary for horses that are available for adoption, foster, and retirement.
Habitat is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and well-being of all horses. Without the help of the public, this program would not continue. Donations and volunteer help keeps Habitat for Horses in operation. For more information, please contact Habitat for Horses at 1-866-434-5737.
