Emergency Feed Assistance

Emergency feed assistance is available to horse owners who have incurred temporary financial difficulty (job loss, medical emergency, foreclosure, etc.) within the past 6 months. If you or someone you know may benefit from this program, please download this application.

This program is made possible, in part, by a grant from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.



Trail's End

The Trail's End program subsidizes some veterinary fees and disposal costs for humanely euthanizing suffering horses and other equines. To qualify, low-income horse owners must have verification from a licensed veterinarian. Law enforcement and horse shelters licensed by the New Mexico Livestock Board are also eligible for this assistance.

Please contact the Fund Coordinator for more information.
