Kill Lot Rescued Horses

Rescued Horses from Kill Lots

The following equines were one step away from loading onto trucks bound for slaughter. With the help of our supporters, we have been able to pull them from kill lots before meeting a cruel and inhumane death. Several of these horses are titled BLM mustangs. Your help is desperately needed to provide qualified adoptive homes so that we can continue to rescue feedlot horses. It was estimated that one kill lot in Colorado alone provided 200-500 horses per week to the Illinois slaughter plant when it was up and running. Due to the closure of the three U.S. horse slaughter plants, all horses are now shipping to either Canada or Mexico. Horse slaughter in Mexico is particularly cruel and barbaric. At this time, the only way to prevent horses from going to slaughter is to have Congress pass federal legislation to ban slaughter within the U.S. and prevent our horses from shipping across the borders. Check our horse slaughter section for more information.

Please note: pregnant mares were already pregnant upon rescue.
