The Society, which is New England’s largest horse shelter, uses 20,000 bales of hay per year to feed the animals they care for. About half is made from their own hay on the property, with the rest being purchased. Funds raised from the Buy A Bale program pays for making and buying this hay. Each year, their budget for hay is approximately $100,000.
Many horses who arrive at the facility, located at 279 River Road in Windham, are in need of recovery from abuse and neglect, oftentimes arriving at the shelter starving and in need of nutrition. Currently, there are approximately 40 horses that make their home at MSSPA.
