Colorado Horsecare Foodbank (www.HorseFoodBank.org) provides temporary grants of emergency hay, grain, and veterinary & hoof care, for Colorado horses when their owners are unable to keep their horses fed, or provide veterinary care and horse-shoeing, due to natural disasters, job loss, divorce, catastrophic medical expenses, and other difficult life circumstances. Colorado Horsecare Foodbank’s mission is to keep Colorado horses safe and with their families during times of financial hardship, rather than sending the horses away forever because of a temporary financial problem.
