Paint Mares Saved from Slaughter

We are so grateful to say these two paint mares have been saved from slaughter. The photos below are of them walking out of the feedlot to the trailer and FREEDOM!!!

The mares were placed with a nice lady in Idaho. They have lots of land to run on! We will keep you updated on their progress.

Thank you to Cindy and Catherine for helping with this rescue, the adopters, and for everyone who supports and donates to make these rescues possible. We couldn’t do any of this without all of you!

#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is only days away, and that means it’s time to make a difference. So, let’s take a minute to learn how you can make an impact in the world of Saving Horses from Slaughter.

On Tuesday, November 27th, we embark on our goal to raise $7,500 to help us continue our mission in saving neglected, abused, abandoned and slaughter-bound horses. PayPal is matching donations 100% up to a total of $500,000 when you donate here on the 27th.

As a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit, Laughing Pony Rescue relies solely on donations and fundraising to do the work we do in saving horses from unfathomable conditions, injuries, and inhumane treatment. Every donation counts for us, from the funds needed to rescue horses who are heading to slaughter to rehabilitating abused equines.

What most people do not know is that 6000 equines suffer every week. The slaughter truck picks them up and spends 2-3 days on the road with 30-50 horses jammed into the truck. They make sure the holes are small so you caring people can’t see inside. There is no room to move. No food or water. The trucks are packed with foals, broken horses, mares and stallions…what a bad mix. If you could look in, you would not be able to sleep at night. Then there is the final destination… the slaughter house which is just barbaric.

Please look into your heart and donate to Laughing Pony Rescue on #GivingTuesday to help us save horses from this terrible fate.

100% of your donation will be applied to the following:

  • Funds to save horses from slaughter
  • Vet and Farrier costs
  • Hay, feed, supplements

Laughing Pony Rescue is extremely grateful for the generous donations and support in assisting us in our life long mission of rescuing abused, abandoned and slaughter-bound horses.  Because of you we have been able to save over 80 horses from slaughter and place them in their loving forever homes in 2018.  Thank you for helping us to do the work we are so passionate about.

Thank you for partnering with us for #GivingTuesday 2018! We can’t wait to show you the impact your contributions are making!

Thank You,

Laughing Pony Rescue

EQUINE OF THE MONTH

Meet DYNAMITE

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dynamite is a military donkey. He worked at Fort Irwin and used to carry dynamite to the troops when it was considered too dangerous to send people. When his service was ended he needed to be rescued and that’s where Laughing Pony Rescue stepped in. He is a very very good donkey and we could not imagine the ranch without him. He is very calm and gentle and loves lots of attention. He recently found his soul mate in Daisy the donkey who was rescued from a slaughter house in Texas. Donkey’s are herd animals and need companions.

Sponsor Dynamite Today

DONATE HERE

You can Sponsor Dynamite or any of our rescue equine today through a monthly or one time donation. It costs between $300 – $500 per month per horse to maintain their rehabilitation. Some horses can take years to nurse back to good health after being rescued from abusive homes and slaughterhouses. Laughing Pony Rescue is dedicated to giving the highest quality of care available.

A Letter From Our Founder

Hello Everyone,

We are now in 2018. Wow! Crazy right? What a year 2017 was. Laughing Pony Rescue saved and placed over 33 horses and we could not have done it without you.

The fires were horrible. I loved the way everyone came together to help all the animals. It showed how many people truly care about animal welfare and how they want to try to ease pain and suffering.

What most people do not know is that 6000 equines suffer every week. The slaughter truck picks them up and spends 2-3 days on the road with 30-50 horses jammed into the truck. They make sure the holes are small so you caring people can’t see inside. There is no room to move. No food or water. The trucks are packed with foals, broken horses, mares and stallions…what a bad mix. If you could look in, you would not be able to sleep at night. Then there is the final destination… the slaughter house which is just barbaric.

80 % of the U.S. is against this and yet any bills proposed in congress get shot down. Why are other animals put down humanely and our equines allowed to be tortured? Can you help get the word out? I know people don’t want to bring up the subject because it is such a downer, but there are people that don’t know and they need to or nothing will change. I can’t tell you how many new people come to the ranch that do not know about this. It horrifies me. I urge you to take the time to check out this process so you will be as passionate as I am to help stop this. One more person who knows is one more person who may step up for change.

Rescuing horses has been a passion of mine for over 40 years and I have always had a particular drive to rescue slaughter-bound equine. Many people shy away from this focus only because dealing with the feedlot can be extremely difficult for many reasons. However this year we have found a way to go straight to the herd. We are excited to share our rescue efforts with you as our plans develop further.

With every new year there is a chance for a new beginning and while our mission is always the same, to rescue abused, abandoned and slaughter-bound equine, we hope to achieve more than we have the years before. We hope you will join us in 2018 to make a difference in the lives of these animals. And always remember that we don’t do this so there will be one more horse on this earth, we do this so one less horse suffers this horrible death.

Sincerely,
Celia Sciacca

Meet Magic

We recently brought in a mare. Her name is Magic. Magic is underweight and needs medical attention. She needs her teeth and hooves taken care of and she will need shots. She also needs lots of good supplements to get her body healthy and stable. Its hard to tell how malnourished she is because she is so very very furry. But pictures comparing her with Ruby, a very healthy pony, helps to show the difference. If you’d like to help us care for Magic, you can donate directly to her below. Thanks!
