Home Again . . .
Most horses will have multiple homes during their lifetimes, but tens of thousands of horses suffer from abuse, neglect and being shipped off to slaughter each year. Over 81,000 horses were shipped across our borders to be slaughtered in 2018. Most were young, healthy and had untapped potential.
Why? Because the unthinkable happens. Horses often end up at auction – and those horses who cannot be identified are more likely to be purchased by kill buyers who represent or sell to horse slaughter plants.
Your donation will be used by EQUUS Foundation Guardian charities dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of at-risk and transitioning horses to microchip the horses in their care. Microchipping is not only critical when disaster strikes - when horses are often abandoned - but also for the tens of thousands of horses facing an uncertain future at auctions each year. This permanent identification will help save these horses from sale to kill buyers and help them find their way home to their protectors and advocates.
Thank you for donating to our microchipping efforts!
