Humanity for Horses is where every thoroughbred crosses the finish line first!
Humanity for Horses is a 501C3 non-profit organization, Tax ID:27-4116043. It was birthed in 2012 when a law was passed that allowed for horses to be slaughtered in the USA. 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.
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. We provide them sanctuary for the rest of their lives and no animal is adopted out. This is a protection against any further risk of mistreatment. Over the past three years, we have also helped other animal rescues in financial need or stress.
To date, 407 animals have been rescued, 228 horses and 180 others. People who come to the sanctuary, whether they be staff, 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.
One of our major concerns is the Thoroughbreds. Our primary focus is to take in the Thoroughbreds that are too injured to go into any other program. We have become known as The Place of Last Hope. We are committed to nurture and doctor them for the rest of their lives. However, they do participate in a hugging program we have. The Thoroughbreds and other breeds that can be healed will be trained for our up and coming therapeutic programs.
100% of donations is allocated to taking care of our angelic animals. We are blessed to have a corporate sponsor that supports all our administrative costs. The sanctuary is located on 151 acres at the base of Mount Shasta in Northern California.

Spartacus and Infinity
We received a call from the Humane Society in Sacramento, letting us know that they had a TB who had been starved. We rushed immediately to get him. Lo and behold, in the same pen as him, was a pony, who was also starved. How could we say no. They have been together ever since. It is such loyalty and love between these two horses. We named the TB Spartacus and the pony Infinity – as we know they will be together for an infinite time.
