T.R.O.T (Transport Relocation Operations Team)

Kentucky Humane Society

Award Date: November 15, 2017
Awarded: $150,000

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) T.R.O.T Program is the winner of the first Right Idea Innovation Grant Challenge. To connect good people with good horses, KHS will create a transportation network to ensure that there is a diversity of available horses in various markets. For example, Kentucky has a large number of gaited horses, Saddlebreds and Thoroughbreds; other regions of the country have a heavy influence of other breeds.

Within each of these states, there are people wanting horses for diverse purposes ranging from competition to recreational pursuits. The T.R.O.T program will mimic the success of companion animal relocation programs that has increased lifesaving in animal shelters nationwide. KHS and The Right Horse Initiative believe that applying market and supply principles will result in similar successes for equines.
