The Minnesota Horse Welfare Coalition’s mission is to keep Minnesota’s horses safe at home. The coalition stands with horses and horse owners to provide timely access to resources before circumstances reach a crisis that endangers the well-being of the horse.

The coalition provides direct assistance to Minnesota horse owners experiencing temporary hardships and faced with competing priorities to maintain their horse or, as a last resort, refer horses to equine welfare and rescue members for rehoming assistance. The coalition offers micro-grants of up to $500 per horse to help with veterinarian and farrier expenses, castration, feed and hay support, transportation for rehoming, medications, and deworming. Minnesota horse owners who need help can apply online at https://bit.ly/3qdxtr0. If awarded, grants are paid directly to the service provider by the coalition.
