Sponsor a Horse

Sponsoring a horse is a wonderful way to help if you have limited time, space or finances and can't commit to a life time of horse care. With the sponsorship, you will receive a framed picture of the horse you've chosen and their story. For an annual sponsorship you will also receive a beautiful Cowboys Collectible horse hair key chain.

Her Name Was "Indian Sunrise"

There have been few things in life that have surprised me, and when I was approached recently about a “down” thoroughbred, I admit I was not prepared for what I saw. In a cattle pen before me lay a horse that was so emaciated, I could hardly speak. You could tell it was a horse, but beyond that, it was anyone’s guess as to what kind. I entered the pen and moved her to see if she could get up, and to my surprise, she did….and what I saw next was horrifying. Her foot had been cut off, and she obviously suffered from severe founder…she stood, but barely. She gobbled the hay I put before her and I looked into her feces-soaked eyes. The pain on her face was excruciating. She had flies all over her, biting flies, and she was lying in her own urine, probably unwilling or not wanting to get up due to the pain. All I could think of at the time was to get a fly mask on her. I knew I had to get her away from this awful man, somehow. I was trying to think of ways that I could help her, help this poor sweet soul.

Helping Sanctuaries Help Animals

The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) was formed in 2007 by nationally and globally recognized leaders in the animal protection field for the sole purpose of strengthening and supporting the work of animal sanctuaries worldwide.

GFAS does not operate animal sanctuaries, but rather helps sanctuaries help animals. GFAS has established clear, specific standards for the humane care of various species in captive facilities and for sanctuary governance and operational issues. With the creation of an objective and realistic accreditation process for the field on an international level, GFAS brings new opportunities for global cooperation and mentoring. GFAS is the first animal sanctuary accrediting organization to take on this task at an international level. To Read More about GFAS Click Here

We would like to thank Jean, Betty Jo, and all the volunteers that worked so hard to ensure the three year inspection was a huge success………Thank you team, you are all amazing!!

N.M. moves to halt first U.S. horse slaughterhouse‏
Horse Slaughter Banned in New Mexico

by Karyn Zoldan on Jun. 10, 2013, under Animal Cruelty, Horses, Hoofs, Goats, Pigs, Farm Animals


The New Mexico attorney general pulled the reins on the first NM horse slaughterhouse cited for Roswell.

Tucson Tails applauds the decision. I wonder if it had anything to do with this hard-to-watch graphic video where a man curses into the camera and then shoots his horse in the face for no other reason than to show animal activists what he thinks of them.

According to this article, there was no way to know whether these horses for slaughter were previously drugged especially the ones coming from the horse racing industry. Slaughtered horse meat is considered gourmet food in some cultures.

You can read the full article here.

Glad to see that some lawmakers in a neighboring Southwest state have humane genes.

Humane Alternatives for New Mexico Horses (and More)
