RVR Horse Rescue will be celebrating the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) national Help A Horse Day on April 22nd and competing for a chance to win up to $25,000 in grant prizes to assist with their efforts to protect horses. To celebrate the day, RVR will be open to the public and festivities will include family fun and education.

From 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., the 40-acre facility in Riverview will bustle with music, food, and fun for the whole family. Children’s activities will include carnival games, pony rides, and petting miniature horses. Facility tours will introduce the guests to the current rescue horses and those available for adoption. Presentations on various topics will take place throughout the event. Delightful raffle, vendor, and tack items will be available, along with RVR logo merchandise and their adult and children’s books. The event location is 12611 Hayes Clan Road, Riverview, FL, 33579.

“RVR is an all-volunteer organization, known for taking on the worst cases of abuse and neglect,” said Shawn Jayroe, Founder of RVR Horse Rescue. “Help A Horse Day is a wonderful opportunity for us to welcome local residents and businesses to help spread awareness about at-risk horses who are in need of loving homes. We hope our supporters will come out on April 22nd to help us win a $25,000 grant so we can continue saving these majestic, loving animals for years to come.”
