Horse Plus Humane Society is the largest horse welfare organization in the United States, rescuing and sheltering more horses than any other horse welfare organization, based on number of animals helped and adopted each year. 

We are a Full Circle of Life Horse Shelter and will never turn a horse away. Having compassion for all horses, no matter what stage of life they are in, is extremely important.  From their beginning to their end, horses find safety, love, compassion and peace at Horse Plus Humane Society. 

Every year we help hundreds of horses transition from a rough place in their life to a new start. Our wonderful team of veterinarians and horse trainers work with the horses to help them become happy, healthy and adoptable.

Horse Rescuing Programs

Slaughter Pipeline

Since 2003 we have rescued horses from auctions, pulling them out of the slaughter pipeline. Our goal is to save horses before they end up at feedlots and then exported alive out of the United States to be slaughtered for human consumption. The SAFE Act would end the export of live horses out of the United States for slaughter for human consumption but until that happens we will continue saving as many horses out of the slaughter pipeline as possible. The most economical way to do this where funds can go the farthest is to rescue them from slaughter pipeline auctions before the kill buyers can purchase them. Kill buyers will often offer horses for sale at their feedlots for 2-3 times what the same horse would bring at auction. This is why we feel strongly that we must rescue them before the kill buyers get them so donated funds can impact a larger number of horses in need.

Horse Cruelty Cases

We assist law enforcement with large animal cruelty cases involving horses in Tennessee and beyond. Many times law enforcement is unable to help horses due to a lack of resources. If they seize the horses where are they going to shelter them while the court proceedings happen? Most counties do not have a financial budget to facilitate Sheltering horses during cruelty case impounds. Our experienced rescue team will come in and assist law enforcement with everything that is needed for a seizure involving large animals. Photos to assist with the cruelty investigation, veterinarian resources, transporting seized animals, animal reports, sheltering and rehabilitating during the court process.
