Urgent Need – Please Help, Save a Horse from Slaughter!
3-19-18 Urgent Need: There is an auction happening Tuesday (tomorrow) where most of the horses will be purchased and shipped to slaughter. Right now we have raised enough funds to responsibly rescue and care for 10 horses, our goal is to save 15 horses from the auction this month. Rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses from the slaughter pipeline is extremely costly, but with your support, we can save horses in need at the upcoming auction. 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, and help them find their new homes. It costs our organization about $1,000 per horse to purchase from auction, rehabilitate, train, and shelter until they can find each adoptable horse their right home. With slaughter prices reaching hundreds of dollars per horse, for average sized horses, it costs a lot just to purchase them at auction. When they come to our shelter, each horse is evaluated by our veterinarian, teeth floated if needed, shots, worming, microchipped, farrier care, quarantine, the list goes on. With your help, at this upcoming auction, we won’t have to leave horses like this precious horse behind. Your donation can make the difference between life or death at a slaughter plant in Mexico or Canada. When we go to auctions, we never know how many horses are there, but at this auction, there are typically over 100 horses that are sold weekly. There are slaughter semi-trucks waiting to haul off these precious lives, it is horrific, but you can make a difference: please give now, every dollar really does help.
