NON-PROFIT HORSE RESCUE ORGANIZATION
Please read about the rescue work done by SHI. Over 100 horses have been rescued since the formation of this organization. You will also learn of other rescues nationwide, and become educated about the plight of many horses ending up in Mexican and Canadian slaughterhouses.
Horse rescue is expensive. SHI can only rescue as many horses as there are funds to support. The funding comes from donations, fundraisers and grants. Please consider a tax deductible donation today. Thank you.
For many years animal advocate groups have been calling for an end to the slaughter of American horses for human consumption. The terrible cruelty inflicted on the horses was always the highlight. As time went on, it was also evident that the meat was contaminated by drugs administered to the horses throughout their lives. Much work has been done in educating the countries importing and consuming the meat.
Animals Angels played a major role in the investigative reporting and presentation of evidence to EU. Their hard work has finally paid off. In 2015, EU will no longer be accepting horsemeat from Mexican slaughterhouses. This means that there will be a significantly lower number of American horses crossing the border for slaughter. Non EU countries will still buy but only a fraction of the original demand. Hope is that they too will follow suit. Humane Society International continues to pressure EU over the decision to disallow meat from Canadian slaughterhouses also. The same level of cruelty and contaminated meat exists there too.
