Boulder, Colo.—The rehabilitation and rehoming process for rescued horses takes an incredible amount of time and resources. To assist with this undertaking, W.F. Young, Inc. presented Lost and Found Horse Rescue of Germantown, MD and Omega Horse Rescue of Airville, PA with a donation of $1500 worth of Absorbine® and Equine America® products as part of an ongoing partnership with A Home for Every Horse.

Representatives of A Home for Every Horse presented the donation at two of the most prestigious horse shows in the country. Kelly Smith of Omega Horse Rescue was presented with the products at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, PA and Maria Anselmo, manager of Lost and Found Horse Rescue, received the donation at the Washington International Horse Show in Washington, DC.

“Lost and Found Horse Rescue is very grateful to have received this donation from W.F. Young and grateful that programs such as A Home for Every Horse exist to help equine rescues. Many of our animals arrive with their hooves and coats in poor condition and thus we are always in need of products to help rehabilitate them. Rehabilitating an equine is a very expensive undertaking. Thank you W.F. Young and A Home for Every Horse for helping us help them. We cannot do it alone!” said Maria Anselmo, manager of Lost and Found Horse Rescue.

The donation includes 24 cases of Absorbine® and Equine America® products designed to promote horse health and comfort. Included in the donation are products like Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment, Hooflex® Therapeutic Conditioner and Flex+ Max®. The package will also contain Equine America® products such as Fungasol® Shampoo, GlucoFlex® and B-L® Comfort and Recovery Support.

Jaime McKinley, vice president of Marketing & New Business Development, said, “We at W.F. Young strongly believe that every horse should have the opportunity for a caring and loving home. We are thrilled to have this opportunity to provide our products to rescue organizations on the front lines of helping homeless horses. These rescues are focused on bringing horses back to health so they can find their forever homes, and our Absorbine and Equine America products are designed to help horses feel and look their best.

“Participating in A Home For Every Horse allows us to honor the legacy of helping horses that was started by my great-great grandparents, who developed Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment to take care of their own horses. We’re honored to join the Equine Network and our fellow sponsors of A Home For Every Horse in this important initiative for the equine industry,” McKinley concluded.

A Home for Every Horse is a joint effort with The American Horse Council’s Unwanted Horse Coalition, which seeks to place, foster and sponsor America’s 170,000 unwanted horses. Partners of A Home for Every Horse include Tractor Supply Company, Purina Mills, WeatherBeeta, the Bureau of Land Management and W.F. Young. Nonprofit rescue organizations can post free listings on Equine.com, the industry’s largest website for buying and selling horses, trailers and farms. The Equine Network is using its connection with more than 1.5 million horse owners each month to promote the program.
