One of the Equine Advocates’ supporter who met Bobby, fell in love with him and decided to fully sponsor the horse. Equine Advocates was founded in 1996. Besides horses, the organization rescues ponies, donkeys and mules from slaughter and abuse. In 2004 was established Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary, a 140-acre facility in upstate New York. Here animals get to live in a natural environment and socialize with each other. The sanctuary now is a home for 85 animals. In 2006 Equine Advocates opened a Humane Education Center. It welcomes visitors of all ages, including law enforcement officials, girl & boy scout troops, horse club members. The Center educates about such issues as responsible horse guardianship, humane horse handling, natural horsemanship, and many other subjects that affect the welfare of these beautiful creatures. Equine Advocates was honored by the New York State Humane Association and the Thoroughbred Charities of America for excellence in equine protection and their rescue work.
