Our rescue team is preparing to attend a slaughter auction this coming week, and we really need your help to save lives. Thanks to your donations, we have raised enough funds to rescue and shelter 2 horses from this upcoming auction, but with your help we can save many more precious lives. Last year, 2018, we rescued 252 horses from slaughter auctions, an average of 21 a month!
Kill buyers attend every auction that sells horses, purchasing every horse they can. They usually take them to their feedlot, where they gather trailer loads together and ship them to slaughter. The entire trip is full of suffering for every horse trapped in the slaughter pipeline. We do everything we can to save as many horses as possible from this horrible fate.
Once the rescued horses are at our shelter, they are seen by our veterinarian, evaluated by our trainer, given love, compassion, great food, worming, vaccination, and are sheltered while waiting for their new home. It costs our organization about $1,000 to rescue, rehabilitate, and shelter until adoption a horse from the slaughter pipeline rescued at auction, and we know we can count on you to help us save lives.
Thank you in advance for your generous support. We couldn’t save lives without you, and no amount is to little to help. Please help us, donate now.
