ASPCA Equine Welfare Award: Fleet of Angels
Lifelong horse-lover Elaine Nash launched Fleet of Angels after noticing how badly horses across the country needed help. While many people are interested in rescuing horses, they are often deterred by commercial transportation costs and lack of access to horse trailers. To combat this problem, the Colorado-based corporation facilitates a program to manage large-scale equine emergencies and to move at-risk horses to safety through a network of trailer owners and service providers. Currently, Fleet of Angels is working to assist horses displaced by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
