The MSSPA (Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals) is pleased to announce they will continue the work of the Maine Equine Welfare Alliance to provide temporary, emergency food assistance for the horses of Maine. Thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), the MSSPA will offer short-term food assistance, which can provide a safety net, allowing a horse to remain in a loving, healthy home.
Maine individuals seeking feed assistance for their horse(s) can complete the short application below. MSSPA volunteers will meet with the people, check references, and conduct site visits, as needed. Following a determination of eligibility, assistance in the form of hay, grain, and/or supplements will be provided. Please note that you must be a resident of the state of Maine and your horses must be located in Maine to apply.
