There are countless horses in need of adoption, re-homing and, quite commonly, purchase from feed lot owners who regularly sell quantities of horses to kill buyers filling contracts with slaughterhouses in Canada and Mexico. Slaughterbound horses usually have a week or less to be purchased by the public. The goal here is to provide information and create opportunities for people to find and adopt horses who have potential in new or second careers. Please prepare responsibly for taking on any horse.
