Does horse slaughter really happen? Despite what some may think, the horse slaughter industry is active in the United States, just the brutal killing does not happen on our soil. Just last week over a thousand horses were exported for slaughter in Mexico. Nearly 70,000 horses from the United States have been shipped to a brutal death in a foreign slaughterhouse this year, an increase of over 3,000 from the same time last year.
Horse slaughter is not getting better, this increase shows that there is even a bigger need for rescuing horses before they end up at feedlots and are shipped to slaughter. For the last 15 years we have been rescuing horses from this horrible fate, this has been a never-ending mission for us. With your help in a few days we can save some more horses from being a statistic on the USDA slaughter export records.
A horse in a slaughter auction feels hopeless. They know they’ve been tossed aside and no one cares about them anymore but the fact is we do care and we can save them with your help. Will you help us save them?
