The Mane Event

The Mane Event is the Animal Rescue League of Iowa's premiere horse event!

Join us at our primary horse fundraiser of the year for an opportunity to celebrate adoptable barn pets, hear their stories, and take a peek inside the ARL's barn programs! 

About the ARL's Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch 

The Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch at ARL Main is a safe haven for horses rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment, and it is also a temporary home for other barn animals waiting for new, loving families. Every day our dedicated staff give the horses the nutrition and care they need to become mentally and physically healthy and find a loving forever home. Join us and help make an impact in the lives of homeless pets.

Coming in August 2022!

What to Expect

Attendees can enjoy a cocktail hour in the barn with the chance to mingle among some of our rescue barn animals and hear their stories. Following will be a silent auction, program, and light dinner. The ARL's new and gently used tack shop will be open, so don't forget to stop by and see what supplies you may need for your own equines.
