Welcome

Front Page 1MEWA’s mission is to help owners struggling to provide for their horses through difficult times. We accomplish this through direct assistance such as providing hay & grain. Other facets of our organization include mentoring programs, education and rehoming assistance.

We are a tax exempt, non-profit organization that relies on volunteer efforts and private donations to accomplish our goals. Donations in any amount are appreciated.

Thank youTo enable MEWA to continue our mission, we need help from the “horse community.”
