Do you know a horse who could use a little help? Since 2010, we have given assistance to over 3,800 equines all across New Mexico, thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors and supporters, and to the families and agencies who partnered with us to help equines in need.
See the short descriptions below or contact us for help.
We launched the Equine Protection Fund Endowment in partnership with New Mexico Foundation in 2014. Earnings from this permanent endowment will ensure that lifesaving direct services and all-important equine policies can be sustained into the future. Please contact us to learn more or visit New Mexico Foundation to provide support for this endowment.

Due to limited funds, we cannot provide an unlimited supply of feed for equines. This assistance is reserved for individuals who are not breeding or racing equines at this time. If you have a colt or stallion, we will ask you about plans for gelding/castration, and may be able to help with the cost of this procedure if cost is a barrier. One application per household permitted. Feed assistance can be denied or withdrawn at any time at the sole discretion of APNM.
