Equine Welfare Network Messengers

Messengers operate programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement; and/or operate programs involving horses that benefit the public; and/or serve individuals with special needs, including but not limited to equine assisted activities and therapies.

Messengers not only provide vital information to individuals seeking information on the services provided by participating organizations but also the means for participating organizations to share their best practices.

The Messenger designation is not an "endorsement" of an organization's policies and practices, but it does make a statement that the organization is willing to provide complete and timely information on their operations and services. The designation will appear on the Equine Welfare Network profile of the approved organizations.
