The California Coastal Horse Rescue’s (CCHR’s) celebration of Help A Horse day was, by all accounts, a success. Held April 24 at the CCHR stables in Meiners Oaks, the daylong event drew about 560 people from Ojai Valley and Ventura County. It was enough to impress the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), which subsequently presented the CCHR with a $10,000 grant.
“We’re really excited,” CCHR President Adri Howe said Thursday. “Out of 187 rescues nationwide, we came in fourth in the ASPCA’s Help A Horse Day contest.”
