Deadline: May 1, 2012

American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation Accepting Funding Requests for Horse Health and Welfare Programs

The American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation, the charitable arm of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, is accepting funding requests from nonprofit organizations and individuals that share its mission to support research, education, benevolence, and the equine community.

Priority emphasis will be given to applications judged to have the greatest potential impact on the health and welfare of the horse on a national and international scope, or where emergency funding is needed. (Funding requests for emergency or equine disaster relief support may be submitted to the foundation at any time.)
The foundation does not grant funds to facilities that care for unwanted or retirement horses. This includes horses that may have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. The foundation focuses its efforts and funds for this population of horses through its assistance to the Unwanted Horse Coalition and related programs.

The foundation does not grant funds for individual equine research projects, but does provide funds for projects or events that support the coordination of equine research (e.g., support of the 2009 Equine Laminitis Research Workshop, the 2007 Lameness Research Meeting and Panel, the 2006 Equine Research Summit, and the 2005 Equine Colic Symposium).

Funds will not be provided to for-profit individuals or groups.

Complete program guidelines and the application form are available at the foundation's Web site.
