An equine sanctuary is certainly a good thing. Oversight of that sanctuary—helping people help horses—may be just as important, however. In recognition of this fact, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has announced its award of a $10,000 to the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) to support its Equine Sanctuary Site Inspection program. The program operates an accreditation process to ensure that horses receive appropriate care and that the sanctuaries uphold ethical and legal standards.

The grant will cover the cost of 10 GFAS accreditation visits.
