Mission

The American Horse Defense Fund's mission is to facilitate the protection, preservation, and humane treatment of members of the Equine species.
The AHDF works to address inhumane treatment of horses, ponies, donkeys, mules and burros, both domesticated & wild, through education, advocacy, and litigation if necessary, in the state, federal and international arenas.
Background:
AHDF was founded in 2000 to fill the void of a national horses-only organization that is not afraid to tackle the tough issues surrounding the inhumane and unwarranted treatment that many horses are subjected to.
