Welcome to the Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition Site


The Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition is dedicated to helping horse owners struggling to provide for their animals, and to saving as many horses as possible from abuse, abandonment and neglect. Our coalition of rescue organizations, veterinarians, law enforcement officials, equine media, and concerned citizens provides responsible horse owners with hay, veterinary, and humane euthanasia assistance, and assists law enforcement agencies with the response to equine neglect, abandonment, and cruelty cases.

Excellent opinion piece in U.S. News & World Report about the cruelty of horse soring. The federal Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R.1518/S. 1406, now has the bipartisan sponsorship of 300 Representatives and 57 Senators. Learn more about how you can help pass this legislation at http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/tenn_walking_horses/facts/what_is_soring.html
