Rescue Group Plans to Save 25 Horses from Slaughter in Ohio

In Honor of the Horses that have served our Country...

2nd Annual Memorial Weekend Rescue for the Horses

Help Save the Horses from Slaughter

On November 23, 2007, Pure Thoughts Horse and Foal Rescue saved 82 horses from going to slaughter for human consumption. They would have been shipped to Mexico and endured a tortuous death.

Well, we are going to do it again. On May 23, 2008, Pure Thoughts will be going back to Sugarcreek, Ohio to the Sugarcreek Auction House to outbid the killbuyers for 25 horses. Between the ransoms (cost of the horses), shipping, immediate emergency vet needs, oat location, health certificates and coggins, we have estimated the costs to be $34,000. We are basing these costs on the last trip we took in November.

Please help us save these beautiful horses from going to slaughter for human consumption in Mexico. It is a tortuous ending for any horse. They are crammed onto trucks -- from young ones to old ones to stallions. After traveling thousands of miles in inhumane transport conditions, they arrive at the plant hungry, thirsty, frightened and confused.

You can witness what happens to these horses when they arrive at the plants in Mexico by visiting http://www.HSUS.org. This is not easy to watch but unfortunately it is a reality.

Help us help these horses!
