WHAT: The Hooved Animal Humane Society (HAHS) will be taking part in the national celebration of ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) Help A Horse Day on April 21-26 and competing for a chance to win up to $25,000 in grant prizes to assist with their efforts to protect horses. To celebrate the day, please join HAHS at their vendor booth at the Midwest Horse Fair during the weekend of April 21st ? 23rd, 2017 and play the ?Horsin Around Game? for a chance to win a variety of prizes!

This nationwide competition is for equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the lifesaving work they do year-round to care for at-risk horses in their community who have often been abused or neglected. Horses have been central to the ASPCA?s work since its founding 150 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.

WHEN: April 21st 8am-7pm, April 22nd 8am ? 7pm, April 23rd 8am-5pm
