What is horse slaughter and Does it really happen in the United states?

The answer is YES. Horse slaughter is the fate of many horses, through no fault of their own. Auction houses across the United States, hold auctions frequently, selling these precious equines to the highest bidder. In the audience sits many kill buyers, who are purchasing these horses to sell for meat. Once purchased, they are loaded onto a trailer and shipped to the nearest slaughterhouse. Packed into a dark enclosed trailer, no stops along the way, being stepped on by the others and no food/water. Once they arrive at the slaughter house they are unloaded and lined up to go through the chute. The fate they await is indescribable. A bolt to the head, blunt force trauma, gunshots and countless other means of execution occur. Our goal is to save as many horses as we can from experiencing this fate. To the world, we may be a small rescue but to the horses we save, we are their entire world. Help us, help them!!! Thank you for your support.

Meet Our Team



Slaughter isn't seasonal, which is why our rescue works year-round to save equines in need. Devote an afternoon to mucking a stall at our barn and see first-hand the horses we help daily.

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home equines that, by no fault of their own, are left in life-threatening situations. Whether this be neglect by their current owners, a trip to the slaughterhouse, on the block at the auction house or as test subjects in medical laboratories.
