Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The mission of the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals is to provide refuge, rehabilitation, and placement of seized equines, support the placement of surrenders, and educate the public. The vision is the elimination of equine abuse and neglect.

The MSSPA provides around-the-clock on-site staffing, has access to veterinary services 24 hours a day, and maintains nearly fifty equines on its farm facilities. Each year dozens of horses are placed at the Society's farm facilities by Maine law enforcement agencies. Following rehabilitation, some animals are adopted into permanent homes. Those unsuitable for adoption remain at the Society for the balance of their natural lives.
