The Hay Bank program designed to assist private horse owners residing in Montana who are experiencing a financial hardship with free hay for their horses has been extended until April 30, 2014
The Beartooth Humane Alliance Hay Bank provides hay at absolutely no cost to qualified recipients. With the aid of a generous $5,000 grant received from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), BHA will proactively help qualifying families feed their horses before starvation or abandonment occurs. The Beartooth Humane Alliance Hay Bank will provide qualified applicants with hay for their horses (and other equines) for 30 days in the event of a financial hardship or a crisis. It is not intended to be relied upon on an ongoing basis. A qualifying financial hardship or crisis includes, but is not limited to, job loss, medical bills or other hardships. Applicants need to not only have a genuine financial need for assistance, but they also need to devise a well thought out plan for how they will get back on their feet and manage their horse care after the 30 days of Hay Bank assistance has ended.
