Give Now and They'll Receive Twice as Much!
We need your help to reach our June 30th deadline

Norma Jean and Jolee were in trouble. These beloved horses live in Grants, but their family was facing a dire financial lapse after the father lost his job. The Equine Protection Fund’s Emergency Feed Program came to the rescue and provided two months of hay, allowing the family to keep feeding Norma Jean and Jolee until the family could get back on its feet. All throughout New Mexico, families are struggling to care for horses due to drought, the high cost of hay, the downturn in the economy and other factors.


Jolee and Norma Jean received feed assistance through the Equine Fund.

In response to evident need in our community, the Equine Fund, part of New Mexico’s safety net for needy horses, donkeys, and mules, was given an amazing opportunity by a generous foundation; a dollar-for-dollar matching grant bringing double the help for hungry equines! We need your help now to match this grant before the June 30th deadline.

Don’t Let Me Down is the Equine Protection Fund’s new crowd funding campaign in partnership with, a crowdfunding website that helps animal nonprofits raise money for critically needed projects. Crowdfunding is a fun way for you to help raise money for New Mexico’s hungry horses. For a donation as small as $10 you can make a huge difference at the Equine Protection Fund.

If you’ve never contributed to the Equine Protection Fund, this is a perfect time to join the network of New Mexicans and Americans committed to humane solutions for suffering horses. If you are a current donor to the Equine Protection Fund, we thank you for your continued support and encourage you to share this new fundraising goal with friends and family.


Any amount helps us to reach our goal of raising $5,000 before June 30th, but if you can make a donation of at least $55 the Equine Fund will send you the 2015 Limited Edition Fifth Anniversary Equine Protection Fund calendar featuring the beauty and majesty of horses, donkeys, and mules captured by equine artists who showcase their work in NM galleries.

2014’s Equine Fund project raised over $3,600 to assist ten horses in New Mexico’s equine rescue facilities. Through the generosity of compassionate individuals, horses like Ace and Dreamer -- victims of neglect and abuse -- were given lifesaving feed assistance, veterinary care and gelding assistance, offering them a second chance in a forever home.
