The Clark County Executive Horse Council sponsors many fine programs, two of them being the Adopt-a-Horse Program and Ripley's Horse Aid. The CCEHC AAH program was created to accommodate area horses that are in dire need and meet our criteria for acceptance (i.e., owners have experienced a catastrophic event). We have a network of several homes throughout Clark County that will foster a horse(s) for a temporary period of time until a suitable permanent home can be found for the horse. The foster caregiver would provide scheduled meals, turnout, grooming, blanketing, meeting vet and farrier at scheduled appointment times, and general well care. Care items would include feed, hoof trims, teeth floats, dewormer, veterinary attention, post castration care, and tack. We are located in Clark County, WA, just north of Portland, Oregon. We prefer to adopt out locally as we do pre-adoption inspections on the homes that wish to adopt one of our fosters. Ripley's Horse Aid provides vouchers for services including farrier, feed, dental float, castration, euthanasia and body removal. Depending on the owner's situation we usually ask for a small co-payment. This service is only a temporary band aid and is available to horse owners who are in temporary financial stress. The vouchers help owners provide basic care to their horse, and the ability to keep their horse(s), and is not meant to be a permanent fix.
