We made the Top 3 - thanks to YOU!

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, our anti horse slaughter billboard project finished in 3rd place in the Global Giving Open Challenge!

It was a harrowing race to the finish line - we were in 5th, then 3rd, then 2nd, then 3rd, then 4th, then 2nd and finally when the buzzer (well, the online timer version of a buzzer lol) went off we had finished in 3rd place! That means we also won a $1300 bonus from Global Giving!

We also had THE MOST Facebook shares of ANY project in this challenge. We were the only horse rescue in the Challenge and the only animal charitiy in the Top 30. 

NONE of this could have been accomplished without the hard work and determination of our readers, followers, supporters and donors - folks that believe horse slaughter is inherently wrong and believe we CAN make a difference by educationg the public with our billboard campaign. 

Our overall goal is $30,000 and thanks to everyone who donated we are more than halfway there and our project is active and accepting donations!

Our most recent billboard, pictured in this report, went up in Indiana on I-69 just a few days ago! 

THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this possible and thank you to the folks at Global Giving!

    sandra houghton I think it speaks volumes that it was the only animal charity in the top 30. That means there are an awful lot of people out there that are concerned about horses and their welfare. That means, the message is starting to hit the average american who did not even know about slaughter til recently. These billboards are a... Read more »

    wick51 I oppose your idea completely. Tell me what happens to the horses that are not wanted any more? If you cant slaughter them legally then they starve to death in someones back yard because they cant get rid of them. Which is better starve em and turn them loose to starve or let them be slaughtered and turned into food ?... Read more »

    Jo Good Morning Wick,By your completely inaccurate post I can see you have been fooled by the pro slaughter lobby. First - MOST horses that go to slaughter are HEALTHY, young and sound - NOT starving in someone's back yard. Get your facts straight before posting.Second - there are NO unwanted horses - ALL domesticated... Read more »

    Sarah Barnett @Wick51 It's not a matter of the lesser of two evils. The fact is that horse slaughter isn't humane, due to the anatomy of a horse and their flight response, it's a clumsy and difficult process. Also, In California, where horse slaughter was banned in 1998, there has been no corresponding rise in cruelty and... Read more »

    Jan Myers Wick51..There is absolutely no direct correlation to the number of horses abused, starved and neglected with regards to having a slaughter plant around the corner or not. We will always have irresponsible people in the world. Makes absolutely no difference. Canada has it's fair share of abuse, neglect and starvation as... Read more »
