Our handsome Lord Lantos is an 11 year old Hanoverian with a career in dressage, after which a new family adopted him. A stoic, proud gelding, he ultimately just refused to carry anyone on his back due to repeated back injuries which occurred during his career days. His new owner was moving and could not take him with her. He is now in a place where he will have new friends and be forever safe.
Eleanor Roosevelt is the name of this frisky 17 year old Thoroughbred mare who was rescued directly off the auction block because nobody wanted her. Although her early years remain a mystery, it seems clear she was cowboyed, and we were told she has a tendency to flip. However, since she has come to live with us, we find her to be kind, sweet, and she loves making eye contact. No flippin now!
Little Dindrane was left alone when her pasture mate died. Unfortunately, her previous owners could not care for her based on many challenges. She immediately bonded with Lady Nada and now they live happily together.

Save an animal - Save an angel
Be an angel - Save an animal
Look back at our struggle for freedom.
Trace our present day's strength to its source
And you will find man’s path to glory
Is strewn with the bones of the horse.
We were a group of people who had been working together in two other nonprofits, www.harnessinghappiness.org and www.savetherain.org. In 2012, our hearts were broken when a law was passed that allowed for horses to be slaughtered in the USA, so Humanity for Horses was birthed. The reason for this name is obvious - humanity must speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Fortunately, after much hard work, in January 2014, the U.S. Government effectively eliminated horse slaughter. As a result, this important action has created a greater need for collaborative equine rescue efforts, because many more horses will now survive the horrors of auction and slaughterhouse and will need to be properly cared for. The more money we can raise, the more animals we can save. We are completely dedicated and devoted to putting an end to their needless suffering and untimely deaths.
Humanity for Horses is a 501c3 non-profit organization, devoted to rescuing horses and animals from slaughter, abuse, neglect and abandonment, providing them sanctuary for the rest of their lives. As well, there is a large specialized Thoroughbred program. No animal is adopted out. This is a protection against any further risk of being abandoned or mistreatment. 100% of the donations goes to taking care of our angelic animals.
To date, 200 horses and 163 other animals have been rescued, not including cats and dogs. The sanctuary is located on 151 acres of pasture at the base of Mount Shasta in Northern California. We have witnessed a miracle at our sanctuary. People who come, whether they be staff, medical assistants, farriers, veterinarians, visitors or those delivering horses, have all had the same reaction. When they first enter the gate, they have stated that they felt overwhelmed with a sense of peace and hope. It could be the way we have thought out and built the sanctuary, but we suspect that the animals are sending this message. When animals come in, we always try to tune into who they would like to live with. We have all felt that families are being reunited.
"I discovered that the horse is life itself, a metaphor but also an example of life's mystery and unpredictability, of life's generosity and beauty, a worthy object of repeated and ever changing contemplation." -Jane Smiley
