An Animal Retirement Home
Our goal is to own or lease enough land to take care of multiple horses. At the moment, we are taking care of one horse. Our rescue horse is a 30 year old handsome quarter horse named Taurus. But we need to expand because there's many more horses that need our attention.
Pony Savers is entering a fundrasing stage. We have a goal of raising 10,000 dollars in the next 6 months. The money will go to acquiring unwanted horses, leasing/owning land to take care of the horses, and having the resources necessary (food, medicine, doctor's appointment, etc.) to take care of them.
Feeding Rescue Horses
Every year over a hundred thousand U.S. horses are slaughtered for human consumption and this process is far from humane. Slaughterhouses use a 4-inch retractable nail, known as a captive bolt, that pierces the horse's skull. However, the bolt gun was designed for cow slaughter, not horses.
A horse skull is much thicker, which means they're hit repeatedly and often off target. Often, the process fails to knockout the horse, as is its purpose. So the horse remains conscious as it is hung to the ceiling and bled out. This is a brutal, inhumane practice, and at Pony Savers, we feel no horse should have to go through such a death.
Practicing what we preach, Sarah Stark is shown above feeding Taurus, her 29 year old horse. Taurus was rescued from neglect by Sarah, and if it wasn't for her, Taurus might have been killed at a slaughterhouse. Compassionate acts, such as rescuing and feeding neglected horses, are central to Pony Savers' mission.
Pet Food Donations
Helping neglected animals of all sorts is extremely important to us at Pony Savers. Animal shelters are in a constant need of volunteers, donations and pet adoptions. To help do our part, we collect unused pet food and donate it to the Lawrence Humane Society. If you have unused pet food of any type and live in the Lawrence area, feel free to drop the pet food off at our place: 16109 W. 154th St., Olathe, KS 66062.
End Horse Slaughter
Pony Savers aims to inform the nation of the brutal practices slaughterhouses employ when harvesting American horses for human consumption overseas.
