Community support needed for chance to win $10,000 ASPCA grant and save more horses.
Holtsville NY - March 17, 2014 - The Kaeli Kramer Foundation will be celebrating the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) national Help A Horse Day on April 26 and competing for a chance to win one of five $10,000 grant prizes to assist with their efforts to protect horses. To celebrate the day, the Kaeli Kramer Foundation will be sponsoring a Help-A-Horse Walk-a-Thon at the Holtsville Wildlife and Ecology Center, 249 Buckley, Road, Holtsville NY 11742. Registration is at 9AM on Saturday April 26. You can preregister on our website.
This nationwide competition is for equine rescues to raise awareness about the lifesaving work sanctuaries do year-round to care for at-risk horses in their community who have been abused or neglected. Horses have been central to the ASPCA’s work since its founding 148 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.
“The ASPCA Help A Horse Day contest is a wonderful opportunity for local residents and businesses to learn about the work of the Kaeli Kramer Foundation and to raise awareness about at-risk horses in our community who are in need of forever homes,” said Linda Kramer, President of the Kaeli Kramer Foundation. Horses are majestic, loving animals, and we welcome new and old supporters to come out on Saturday April 26. Please help us win a $10,000 grant so we can continue our lifesaving efforts for years to come.
The Holtsville Wildlife and Ecology Center is home to our resident mustangs, Callie and Valor. After the walk, watch a natural horsemanship demonstration with our mustangs. Learn about the plight of the America’s wild horses and the challenges confronting domestic horses. There will be a Help A Horse Puppet Show, Raffles, Prizes and more. Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors while helping others! “
The mission of the Kaeli Kramer Foundation is to promote humane education and to provide peaceful sanctuary for elderly and infirm horses who have spent their lives working. Our sanctuary is home to elderly lesson and trail horses, injured racehorses, former NYC carriage horses and American mustangs. We also rehabilitate and re-home horses at risk. We recently found a home for a young thoroughbred mare who sustained serious injuries racing. After more a year of tender loving care and rehabilitation, she now has a forever home with her devoted dressage partner. Please join us on April 26th, walk for the horses and be a horse hero!
