ASPCA Virtual Adoption Event – May 24, 2023

This May is the third annual Adopt a Horse Month, initiated by the ASPCA Right Horse Program. The month focuses on spreading awareness on equine adoption, and, of course, finding new homes for adoptable horses. In support of this, the ASPCA is hosting virtual adoption events throughout May.

In 2021, during the second annual Adopt a Horse Month, more than 44,000 people viewed adoptable horses on, and participating adoption partners reported an average increase in adoptions of 43 percent during that month.

See below for the horses available during the second ASPCA Virtual Adoption Event of May 2023!

He broke his left front fetlock and had surgery in 2022, but that does not stop him. He’d love to have a companion home. Learn more about Espresso here.
