Adoptable Horses Presented by the EQUUS Foundation at the 7th Annual Hampton Classic Animal Adoption Day & So Much More!

The EQUUS Foundation is proud to participate in the 7th Annual Hampton Classic Animal Adoption Day on Monday, August 28, 2017 which is dedicated to helping rescued, at-risk horses, dogs and cats find permanent homes. The Adoptable Horses will be presented by the EQUUS Foundation.

"We are so grateful to the Hampton Classic for the opportunity for spectators and competitors and their friends and families to meet and mingle with adoptable horses and learn their stories from the select equine adoption and rescue groups that will be joining us," said Valerie Angeli, EQUUS Foundation VP Communications. "These groups are shining examples of what we can do for horses at risk in the United States when we work together with best intentions and best practices."

"One of the highlights of the Hampton Classic Horse Show for us is that we get to work with so many of our EQUUStars who will be competing at this beautiful and important show. Our EQUUStars are not just elite competitors but they walk the walk with animal welfare and we are so proud of them!"
