Saving slaughter-bond horses and giving them a 2nd chance at life. Funding always needed for vet/feed bill. Every dollar goes to save a life

At Second Chance Farm, we buy slaughter-bond horses from stock sales and occasionally individuals, and they are vetted and most often nursed back to health to start their " Second Chance". Slaughter horses are packed like sardines on semis ,shipped for 3-4 days with no stops, no food and no water to kill plants where they are brutally butchered..this is no way for a companion animal, especially one as graceful and noble as the horse, to be treated! Once healthy again, each horse is individually assessed ,some are adopted out to new forever homes and others will spend the rest of their life with us. Vet bills and feed bills can be over-whelming sometimes, not including the price to buy a horse from one of these sales, which are usually done "by the pound" and each horse usually costs around 1-3,000$ from purchase to "healthy". We are not 501C yet and every dollar donated goes straight to saving these horses. Until the US bans the export of slaughter-bond horses to Mexico and Canada, unfortunately people like me will always rely on the kindness of others to help us do what we do. I am working on a website, possible Facebook page, so that everyone can see dramatic before/after pictures, conditions the horses at the sale are in and pictures of our horses that have found a second chance in their new forever homes. Until those sites are up, please fell free to email me at SecondChanceFarmWV@gmail.com If you or someone you know has a horse that needs rescued or rehomed, please don't hesitate to ask, there are better options out there than selling at a stock sale or to a stranger that may be buying your horse cheap, just to make a profit selling it for slaughter..
