care to help save horses from slaughter?
i just found out about the immense number of horses going to canada and mexico to be slaughtered for the european market.
i mean, i knew it happened, but had no idea so many family pets and school horses were making this trip weekly.
i don't mind that people eat them, my objection is to the horrific transport situation and the inhumane method used to kill them. but this isn't meant to be a discussion about stopping slaughter, more of a way to spread the word about the many lovely animlas who could be saved from this fate.
yesterday i learned a lot and as a result spent about ten hours working on fund raising to save just one pony.
if anyone here wants to help, or knows of someone who wants to, they can contact a rescue to donate a few dollars. it all adds up, of course, and would be greatly appreciated.
i can help with names of rescues on the east coast, they are everywhere and desperate for help. even a bale of hay, which costs maybe five dollars, would help.
