HEART Equine Ambulance Allotted $10,000 Grant From ASPCA

Wellington, FL - December 17, 2007 - Humane Equine Aid and Rapid Transport (HEART) is pleased to announce that the organization has received a $10,000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

HEART is a nonprofit organization that provides equine ambulatory services at various locations at numerous horse shows during the year, including the Winter Equestrian Festival, Lake Placid, the Hampton Classic, Pennsylvania National Horse Show and more.

The grant is earmarked for educational use, which will enable HEART to create various educational, health and safety materials concerning the ambulance and ways to transport sick or injured equines. The organization, led by president Robin Sweely, will work with the ASPCA to develop these materials and promote awareness of both organizations.

"We are thrilled to have received a grant from the ASPCA," Sweely explained. "This funding will allow us to promote the organization and work to develop a show manager awareness campaign to get the word out about the ambulance, as well as safe methods of traveling with and transporting horses."

Much of the funding necessary to HEART's operation comes from an annual fundraiser, which will be held on Friday, Feb. 15, at Acorn Hill Farm in Wellington, FL. This year's theme is "50s Sock Hop," and the evening will include cocktails, dinner, raffles and more.
