Urgent Need – Please Help, Save a Horse from Slaughter!
7-18-18 URGENT NEED: Horses Being Auctioned Off This Tuesday – Most Will Be Shipped to Slaughter – Please Help!
Help us save horses from an auction in middle Tennessee this Tuesday. Your donation will allow us to pull horses out of the slaughter pipeline. 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.
Nearly 100,000 horses are shipped out of the USA for slaughter every 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, and help them find their new homes. It cost approximately $1,000 per horse to rescue the horse from the auction, give the horse medical care, quarantine, training, and get the horse adopted into the right home.
You can help save horses from the slaughter pipeline, without your help, we cannot save them – Please give now!
