Our members are the heart and soul of the Unwanted Horse Coalition, and they are the driving force behind the work we do. By becoming a member, industry-based organizations can participate in making decisions about the Coalition’s nationwide efforts to help reduce the number of unwanted horses. 

Organizational membership in the UHC is available at several levels.  If you are interested in becoming a member, contact the UHC Director for details, or apply online here: http://www.unwantedhorsecoalition.org/new-membership/

NEW for 2018: Non-Profit Membership: $25
The UHC recognizes the need to provide resources and information for equine care facilities, rescues, and sanctuaries around the country. As such, we have created a “Nonprofit Membership” for these types of organizations that wish to be a part of the UHC, at a very minimal cost. Members should be organizations that are actively committed to advocating for “Owning Responsibly,” organizations that strive to provide collaborative partnerships with the horse industry. and be a registered 501(c)(3).
