UToledo equestrian team hosts horse rides to raise money for shelter dogs

The University of Toledo equestrian team is hosting Horses for Humanity to help care for shelter dogs in need of forever homes.

The public event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 10 in the grassy area south of Memorial Field House on Main Campus.

Several horses will be on campus for people to ride for a donation of at least $3. The team also is accepting paper towels, dog toys, dog treats and blankets.

Donations collected will go to Lucas County Canine Care and Control to support animals up for adoption.

Visitors also will have the opportunity to pet and adopt dogs accompanied by volunteers with Lucas County Canine Care and Control.

“We want to support the work being done in the Toledo area to take care of stray and homeless dogs,” Andrea Woo, co-president of the UToledo equestrian team, said. “Horses and dogs are such incredibly therapeutic animals. We are excited to share the joy our horses bring us with our campus community, while working to help these loving dogs up for adoption.”

Members of the equestrian team will be on hand to assist in riding horses.
