Our rescue team has safely arrived at the auction, and as always, their hearts are sinking. Sinking because there are so many horses at the auction that will go to slaughter if we do not save them. Sinking because there are horses and this poor little donkey in really poor condition that haven’t known love and compassion, not to mention a decent meal, in a very long time. Sinking because rescue funds are limited, and we can only save as many as we have funds to rescue and shelter.
There is hope tonight though! For every horse that we rescue, we will change the entire world for that horse. For every horse we rescue, kill buyers are able to send one less down the road to Mexico or Canada. For every horse we rescue, that horse has the best possible chance of finding a new direction in life, a new home, a new family to call its own.
Won’t you help us save horses tonight? The auction is starting any minute now, and we need your help! These pictures are of horses at the auction right now. We will try to save as many as we can but we need your help. Even $5 will help us save a life, please donate.
We will rescue as many horses as we can that are in the slaughter price range, (typically $0.50 a pound) when we know horses are out of the slaughter price range. We will stop bidding and focus on the ones that are in jeopardy of being purchased for slaughter. There are times when kill buyers spike the prices by overbidding out of spite and that makes our rescue efforts more difficult and costly for some horses.
