Equines come with their own set of expenses and requirements. The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) offers a safe space and resources to help when you need options.
KEEP AT HOME
If you have fallen on hard times financially, but feel you can still provide good welfare for your equines long-term, you may be eligible to participate in our Vet Direct Program. Once your case is qualified, HSNT will cover a percentage of an equine vet visit to provide one-time care benefits such as shots, teeth floats, minor illnesses, and basic care.
If you need to surrender your healthy equine for any reason, please contact us. We’ll talk through options to determine the best course of action for you and your animal. Equines are received as space allows and by utilizing collaborative partners and foster homes. As we do not have sanctuary capacity, all equines will be adopted out to approved homes when ready to do so.
HSNT’s 33-acre property and caring, professional staff will meet every animal's needs. Equines are housed in spacious pastures or stalls. We ensure all animal welfare needs are met, including nutrition, exercise, medical and farrier care. In order to ensure success in future homes, equines requiring advanced training are handled by qualified staff and sent to accomplished trainers for finishing, as needed.
If your equine is not healthy with a poor prognosis for recovery, HSNT may be able to assist. HSNT strives to alleviate suffering of all animals where rehabilitation is not an option. Once your case is qualified, HSNT will cover a percentage of a vet visit to provide end of life relief to your equine in need (available for horses, donkeys, mules only).
WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP EQUINES IN NEED
Through strong partnerships and working together, HSNT is helping owners and their animals in the North Texas area. Thanks to a grant from the Texas Thoroughbred Association with support from the ASPCA®, and The Right Horse Initiative, we are pleased to collaborate with the SPCA of Texas to offer the extensive services above to surrounding communities of North Texas.
