Horse Emergency Relief Project

by Stamp Out Starvation Of Horses, Inc.


Stamp Out Starvation of Horses (S.O.S.) is committed to saving horses from starvation and helping owners keep their horses when they have fallen on hard times. The number of horses who die of starvation in Georgia is staggering, and our goal is to eliminate this unnecessary form of cruelty. We serve to assist both individuals and licensed horse rescues to care for and feed their horses, educate horse owners, help re-home unwanted horses and work to enforce cruelty laws.

The horse community is plagued with the heartbreaking challenge of finding loving homes for thousands of unwanted horses. As the economy worsens, the number of horses starving to death or being sold at auction to buyers for slaughter increases. Abandoned horses are found running loose, left alone and confused, to fend for themselves, endangering the public safety and costing tax payers thousands of dollars for their care and, often, disposal.


1. We help families to feed their horses during temporary financial set backs. This keeps horses in their homes and out of the rescue and slaughter pipelines. 2. We work with licensed horse rescues in Georgia, we also assist them in feeding the horses they take in as starved, injured, diseased or abandoned. 3. We educate owners and help re-home horses in bad situations. 4. We take in and rehabilitate horses as our resources allow. We are currently at capacity due to our property limitations

Long-Term Impact

When most people think of horses, they think of the shiny, well-conditioned horses who compete in Dressage and Eventing in the Olympics, or 4H shows with ribbon-laden ponies carrying young riders to victory. For many, however, horses are much more than that. As demonstrated by the proven value of horse therapy, horses serve as loving companions to many. Horses are an important part of our country's history and do not deserve to die a painful and terrifying death.
