Saving Horses, Inc., is a 501C3 non-profit organization that actively rescues horses from  slaughter, abuse, neglect and abandonment. SHI has rescued horses off slaughter bound feedlots, at auction, and from neglectful or other life threatening situations.

Lucky Girl


Saving Horses, Inc., was founded in 2007 by Audrey Reynolds and  Killeen “Killy” Fornelli. We had become involved in the anti-slaughter campaign, and were introduced to the rescue world as a result of this. The number of horses rescued and in need of rescue was overwhelming, and we felt a need to jump in and help out. We soon learned that since the passing of Prop 6 in California in 1998 many horses from California, still go to slaughter in Mexico or Canada. The law is not enforced. Consequently many horses showing up at auction in California are at risk of ending up at slaughter.

You will read about our auction and feedlot saves on the SHI rescue pages.

Early in 2007, Audrey was introduced to the Fans of Barbaro who congregate online, on the Alex Brown Racing forum. Thousands of horses across the U.S.A. have been rescued by donations made on this website. Audrey became personally involved in the Kansas 45+2, the rescue of 45 slaughter bound horses, and soon after, she  rescued two horses from the slaughter bound Fallon feedlot, Nevada. Lucky Girl, a 15 year old ex-racehorse and Flicka, a 3 year old, wild, black mare, both spent some quarantine time at Shiloh Horse Rescue, Nevada, before coming to their new homes in Alpine. Flicka was adopted by Alex Simpson, who has done an amazing job with the breaking of this wild horse. Lucky Girl became the companion horse for Audrey’s 26 year old retired event horse.

Please read about the rescue work done by SHI. 41 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.
