It's October and it's official: NorCal Equine Rescue is now Horse Plus Humane Society. We have been excitedly waiting this day ever since we knew the change would take place. Today it's official!
Many of you may have grown fond of the old website, but now it's redirects to the new website automatically. Although www.SaveTheHorse.com will take you to the new website, the base url is: http://horsehumane.org. Please make a note of this!
We know many of you may have questions. Why the change? Has NorCal become part of the Humane Society of the United States or affiliated with other humane societies? Who is running it now?
Rest assured, Jason and Tawnee Preisner, founders of NorCal Equine Rescue way back in 2004, are the driving force behind the change, and are still responsible for the day to day management of rescues and operations and oversee shelter operations. The day to day shelter operation are managed by Larry and April who are doing an A+ job. Jason and Tawnee will still be doing most of the hands on rescue work, and are working hard on becoming California Humane Officers to better serve animals in need. Jason and Tawnee are going nowhere! The focus and mission of H+ Humane Society remains the same as that of NorCal Equine Rescue.
