This site was created to raise awareness about US horses being shipped to Canada and Mexico by the thousands every year. Too many people have no idea this is going on in our country, I was one of those people for many years. I thought US horses were safe from slaughter because horse slaughtering WAS banned from the US. What I didn't know was that even though horse slaughter WAS stopped in the US, it is NOT illegal to sell horses to slaughter in Canada and Mexico. The problem with horses being sold for slaughter to these countries is that GOOD, YOUNG, SOUND, horses are sold for slaughter. The other problem is that Canada and Mexico do NOT use humane methods to slaughter horses, nor do they use humane shipping to slaughter. Horses that are shipped to slaughter in Canada and Mexico travel 2-4 days packed in a trailer with many other horses, they do not get rest, food, or water on their long journey to the slaughterhouse. Many horses are injured and/or killed because of this before they even arrive at the slaughterhouse. I hope that this site will save more horses in kill pens across the United States, and reduce the number of horses taken to auction as well.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
