We need you! We are going to an Auction this Tuesday (8-6-19) and need your help to save horses! Rescuing horses out of the slaughter pipeline is heartbreaking work but we are their only chance. We can only rescue as many horses as funds allow. We have raised enough funds to save 5 horses so far, that leaves at least 15 horses in jeopardy of being sold and shipped to slaughter. It is heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye to horses we didn’t have funds to save and watch them load on to a slaughter truck. Will you help us change the world for horses who have no hope?
Your donation will allow us to pull horses out of the slaughter pipeline before they end up at a feedlot and shipped to slaughter. When horses are at auctions they can tell their lives are in jeopardy. They are handled roughly, and when a person comes along and gives them sympathy and love, they soak it up as if they know it could be the last time they will receive compassion from a human. Auction yards are public sales where anyone who wins the bid can buy a horse. Kill buyers attend auctions to purchase horses to be shipped to slaughter, auctions are the beginning of the slaughter pipeline for most horses.
Approximately 70,000 horses have been shipped out of the USA for slaughter last year. Kill buyers see horses as dollars on hooves, and the horses are purchased for their meat, regardless of age, training level, injuries, or service they have done for their old owners. Owners of horses who do not truly care about their horse’s future, or have no other option, take their horses to livestock auctions, hoping and telling themselves that some nice person will buy them. This is often not the case. Please help us save horses from the slaughter pipeline, donate now. Your donation will be used to help purchase horses directly out of the slaughter pipeline, evaluate them, give them the medical care they need, the Last Act of Kindness if necessary, training, rehabilitation, and help them find their new homes. It cost approximately $1,000 to rescue a horse from the auction, give them medical care, quarantine, training, and get them adopted into a new loving home.
You can help save horses from the slaughter pipeline, without your help, we cannot save them – Please give now!
