HPL to receive Thrivent Financial charitable funds!

We are excited to inform you that The Horse Protection League is now enrolled as a participating organization in Thrivent Choice. The Thrivent Choice Program is an easy way for Thrivent Financial members to recommend how Thrivent should distribute a portion of its charitable outreach funds, through a vehicle called Choice Dollars®.

By directing Choice Dollars®, Thrivent members can recommend which nonprofit organizations they feel passionate about and feel should receive charitable grant funding from Thrivent.

Some Thrivent members have already begun to direct Choice Dollars® to HPL! Those funds will be used to meet various needs at our ranch.

If you have Thrivent Choice Dollars® available to direct, please consider directing them to The Horse Protection League.

To learn more about Thrivent Choice, visit Thrivent.com/thriventchoice or call Thrivent at 800-847-4836.

HPL Wins $5,000 in the ASPCA Help A Horse Day Contest!

I am happy to announce that The Horse Protection League is a winner in the ASPCA Help A Horse Day Contest! There were 107 contest entries and only 11 awards. HPL has received an award of $5,000. This is quite remarkable considering it is the first time that HPL has entered the contest and also considering the large number of entries.
Below is the national press release from ASPCA which announces the contest winners: It is titled: ASPCA Awards $100,000 to ‘Help a Horse Day’ Contest Winners. Eleven equine rescues receive grants in recognition of their efforts to protect horses.
Our entire HPL community made this win possible, and I am so grateful for their enthusiasm and participation.

With regards,
Carol Molnia
HPL Board

The Horse Protection League is famous!

The City of Arvada has featured the Horse Protection League in a 6-minute video on YouTube and KATV8 (Arvada’s TV station). Our horses and our volunteers – Annie Oden, Carol Molnia and Kris Mitchell – did a wonderful job of representing our organization and educating the public about all that HPL does for our horses and our community.
