LASSO, Large Animal Support Southwest Organization, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that was founded in 2000 as a horse rescue. Today, it is much more than that. In addition to its work with children, members assist horse owners in a variety of ways from re-homing, placing horses in foster homes, lending temporary assistance through its horse food bank, gelding, and even euthanasia, when necessary. LASSO is only able to provide these services due to the generosity of donors and the proceeds from fund-raisers.
