All,

Please nominate the FOB's for the following honor. Just send an email to:

info@horse-protection.org. Be sure to put "Horse Heroes" in the subject line. 250 words or less.

Everybody should do this! Include the website when you write!

Since 2006, the National Horse Protection League has fought to protect horses and to find humane alternatives to slaughter or abandonment. Along the way, we have heard countless stories about individuals across the United States who have gone above and beyond in their service to our equine friends.

That's why each month, beginning in November, we will be publicly honoring one individual or organization as a "Horse Hero." Each Horse Hero will be featured on the front page of our website.

But we need your help: If you know a person or organization that has saved a horse (or horses) destined for slaughter, provided food and shelter to abandoned horses, or taken steps to improve conditions for horses in your community, we want to hear about it.

To nominate a Horse Hero, please send an email to info@horse-protection.org. Please put "Horse Hero" in the subject line and tell us in 250 words or fewer why this person or organization deserves this honor. Include the name of the "Horse Hero" you are nominating along with a photograph (if you have one), your name (unless you are nominating yourself!), phone number and email. While media coverage of the person's actions is by no means a requirement, we certainly encourage you to include it if you have it, as it will make it easier for us to verify the story. Ask your friends who are fellow horse lovers to join this effort!

In just a couple of weeks, we will announce our first Horse Hero in an email to our members. We will also maintain a permanent page on our Web site where current and past honorees will be listed and profiled. We hope this may even inspire other Americans to become horse heroes themselves.

We are excited to launch this new award and look forward to sharing our stories -- and yours -- about some of the best friends American horses have.

Best,

Team NHPL

HAY, I agree. The folks here are generous to a fault. The rescues work hard. I think we all deserve it!

Yeah you are right. But we rescues would be lost without the FOB's!
