Sore Winners

Many show horses pay a hefty price for a blue ribbon. Tennessee Walking Horses are often so chronically abused that they can hardly stand. In fact, that's the whole point. Their trainers want them to wince when they land on their feet--that makes them step higher in shows. Higher steps = more medals. Well, we're not standing for it. [photo credit: Lance Murphy]

HELP US FIGHT HORSE SORING

We have to SAFE them!

Every year, more than100,000 American horses are horrifically slaughtered for human consumption. But we can put a stop to this brutality. Contact Congress today to urge the passage of the SAFE Act. [image credit: The HSUS]

Powered by Heart

Animal suffering can feel overwhelming. How can we change the institutional cruelties that so often befall our pets, farm animals, and wildlife? If compassion leads us to want to protect animals, then good sense leads us straight to Congress to do that. We know the best way is to lobby our leaders for kindness, and wipe cruelty off the books. Please make a gift today to charge up these efforts. Because love's power knows no bounds, and together, neither will we. [image credit: Lara Koch]
