CHARITIES:
The Animal Protective Foundation is a donor-funded, full-service humane society providing services to Schenectady County and the greater Capital Region. Since 1931, the APF has held true to the mission of its founders. They have an “open admission” policy which ensures that animals are not turned away based on their breed, age, condition or circumstance. The mission of the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady is to address pet overpopulation and animal suffering through education and appropriate action, to enhance human/animal relationships, and to provide care to animals in need.

At Peaceful Acres Horses, rescued and retired horses guide human partners in healing emotionally, psychologically and physically. Peaceful Acres Horses’ mission is to provide a therapeutic environment for both horses and people to resolve issues related to grief, loss and trauma, and to regain strength and trust. Partnered together in equine assisted experiential learning and psychotherapy programs, the horses and people both learn skills and find a supportive environment that improves their quality of life.

All money donated will go to helping host this charity event and to help support these organizations!
