Rosa Snider, Equine Displacement Awareness and Education Project
As a fifth-generation resident of Okanogan County, Washington, Rosa Snider has been deeply affected by seeing wild horses in the area sent to slaughter. Due to lack of sanctuary space for wild horses, she and her husband have dedicated their own property and coordinated with local authorities to create a humane alternative to the slaughter. With their Equine Displacement Awareness and Education Project, Rosa also provides educational courses and provide one-on-one education and counseling; giving prospective and current horse owners the tools and resources they need to minimize or alleviate the unnecessary killing of these majestic animals.
“This project has helped these displaced victims find and adapt to a new place in the ever-increasing spread of population, while educating well meaning and loving humans to better care for their new family member” says Rosa.
The funds from The Pollination Project will be used for local marketing efforts and educational materials.
