The calls come to us almost daily;
"We have an older horse we can't afford its care any longer,
will you please take it?"
"Our home is being foreclosed on, and we can't find anyone who
wants an older, un-ridable horse. Do you have any suggestions?"
"I have this horse that has gone blind? It is going to hurt
itself, or someone. Please help!"
The calls keep coming, more and more on a daily bases as the
times grow hard for people.
Horse owners who can no longer care
for their horses have human options:
Sell the horse
to a responsible, private owner
Free Lease the
horse to another horse
horse to a program that uses
horse to a horse rescue or
Like many other rescues through out the
United States we try our best to help when we can, but with
these hard times it is impossible to take in every horse we get
a call about. With very low donation of funds we continue to
ask ourselves what is going to happen to those horses? Will they be Neglected?Abandoned? Abused?
or just allowed to slowly
Starve in their field? Sent off to Slaughter in Canada or Mexico?
We have been thinking long and
hard about this, in order to save horses from Neglect,
Abandonment, Abuse, Starvation and Slaughter HHT has decided to
follow in the footsteps of other Equine Rescues across the U.S. with a Eutha
From Wikipedia the term Euthanasia
Greekeu = good + thanatos = death) refers to
the practice of ending a life in a painless manner.
means "good death" peaceful and calm.
With your donations HHT can
assist Equine Owners financially and emotionally with the
Ultimate Act of Compassion Program.
It takes approx.
to provide this service per horse and keep them
from starvation and out of the slaughterhouse.
Each horse that
is accepted into this program will be evaluated by our staff for its condition of life and
adoptability. If the equine has a good quality of life,
and we have the room at our facility, we will try and bring it into our
adoption program. The Ultimate Act of Compassion Program is
offered to responsible owners who have run out of options to
humanely care for their equine and have decided to have them
humanely put down.
We are currently accepting pledges for our Ultimate Act of
Compassion Program. As funding becomes available we will begin
to take applications and work with owners in need, providing
compassion and support during this time of need. Approved
applications will be on a case by case interview.
