The horse auction is less then a week away

We would like to say a big “Thank You” to Sandra! Sandra recently received an inheritance and has donated $5,000 to our upcoming auction rescue this Tuesday! Our goal is to save 20 horses from this month’s auction and thanks to Sandra’s gift we have a great start!

Rescuing horses out of the slaughter pipeline at auctions is heartbreaking work. ? We can only rescue as many horses as we can responsibly rescue and care for.  There are typically about 100 horses at this auction and it breaks our hearts that we can’t save them all, but for the ones we are able to save, it changes the world for them.  Your donation will allow us to save horses out of the slaughter pipeline before they end up at feedlots and shipped to slaughter. When horses are at auctions they can tell their lives are in jeopardy. 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. 

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.

Over 70,000 horses were 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 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, feed, shelter them 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 the horse 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!
