Peaceable Farm, Inc.

These precious animals deserve to live. Help us rescue and rehabilitate these neglected friends with love and dignity.

At Peaceable Farm, our mission and our passion is to save as many horses (and other animals) as we can from unnecessary and cruel slaughter. We purchase horses from auction that otherwise would be bought by slaughterhouses in Canada and/or Mexico, where they are inhumanely processed and then shipped out for both human and animal consumption. Many of these horses are beautiful Thoroughbreds disposed of because they do not generate sufficient revenues, while many others are magnificent old work horses discarded by their owners after lifetimes of hard work and service.The USDA estimates that between 100,000 and 150,000 horses are slaughtered in this way each year.

Invariably such horses have health problems and are underfed, so we rehabilitate them with medical care, food, shelter, and love, and then seek to find good homes for them. For those we cannot place, we keep them in comfort and security so they can live out their days in peace and dignity. On average it costs $500-600 per month to support each horse. We have also saved a number of mules, donkeys, cats, and dogs, among other four-legged friends (and some two-legged chickens!). These are all animals that people have abandoned, and they are unable to take care of themselves.
