The Colorado Unwanted Horse Alliance is a Colorado nonprofit corporation formed in April 2008 for the purpose of addressing the problem of unwanted horses in Colorado. The Alliance conducts research concerning the number and status of Colorado's unwanted horses, educates the public concerning research findings, identifies and implements programs to address the unwanted horse population, provides information concerning the purchase, care and disposition of horses, and assists and supports federal, state and local organizations engaged in the same or similar work.
The Alliance is dedicated to finding solutions to the problem of unwanted horses, not to debating the relative roles of its many causes. As such, the Alliance takes no position on such issues as the relative merits of processing horses for human consumption.
The mission of the Colorado Unwanted Horse Alliance is to reduce the number of unwanted horses in Colorado, and to promote public and private collaboration and education concerning their welfare, ownership and disposition.
