Award Date: February 28, 2018
Awarded: $1,503,000

The SPCA of Texas serves the Dallas/Fort Worth and greater North Texas area as an intake and holding facility resource for horses seized from neglect and abuse investigations. Recognizing the need in equine welfare to provide better support to horse owners, the SPCA must expand their current operations and facilities to include managed admission for horses in need of transition. Expanding the SPCA of Texas Equine Program will offer options for owners to surrender horses before they fall at risk, and for potential adopters to be matched with trained horses that fit their needs. Working in partnership with The Right Horse Initiative, the SPCA projects to increase adoptions and transfers from 75 to 330 horses annually at the end of the three-year project.
