The next auction is this Saturday night and we need your help to save lives! As you know, every month we rescue as many horses as we can from auctions in both California and Nevada, saving them from slipping into the slaughter pipeline. Auctions are one of the main ways horses get into the slaughter pipeline, where they are shipped without food or water for days on end to Mexico or Canada for slaughter.
In March we rescued a total of 10 horses from the slaughter pipeline with our Auction Rescue program. 3 horses came from Nevada, and 7 were rescued at various auctions in California. With your help we will rescue even more this month.
. Horses that are sold at auction often end up being shipped to slaughter within hours of being sold. Killer buyers prowl the auction, nodding their brief consent to the auctioneer when the price is low enough, dooming that horse to a horrifying trip and a most brutal end to their magnificent life if we do not outbid the killer buyer. We can only save them from slaughter with your help!
Our goal this month, as always, is to raise $6,000 for the rescue, care, and training of the rescued auction horses. Your donation of any amount will be used directly to purchase, transport, feed, provide vet care, training, sheltering and care for the horses rescued from slipping into the slaughter pipeline and being shipped to Mexico or Canada.
