See Who We Are Helping in 2020

You can help horses avoid these horrific scenarios.

We don't like to talk about it, or even think about...but it's real and it's happening.

Horses are being neglected, abused and inhumanly slaughtered. 

Together we can help stop it.


About 100,000 horses are exported for slaughter annually.  According to The Humane Society, "Horse Slaughter, whether in the U.S. or foreign plants, was never and cannot be humane because of the nature of the industry and the unique biology of horses. 

Slaughter is a brutal and terrifying end for horses, and it's not humane.

With few exceptions, it is the backyard horse that is most often neglected.  There are a number of reasons as to why.  But the forgotten horse is the neglected horse. 

The legal classification of neglect is when someone fails to provide adequate care, shelter, food, etc...In most states, there are varying degrees of neglect. 

See something, say something.


Abuse is different from neglect.  Abuse in almost every state means that someone intentionally committed some physical act against his or her horse. 

If you witness abuse, report it to your local authorities or animal control agency in your town. 

With both neglect and abuse- education is our first line of defense.
