Bedevere finally arrives. This poor Paint horse has been through so much abuse and abandonment and for some reason, it took us so long to get him. He is ecstatic with his new pasture and shelter (as he lived a long time with none) and we are ecstatic to have him home with us.
Wonderful, sweet Amazing Grace arrived from CT in amazing graceful way. She is blind and she is now beside her two friends, who are also blind. As you can see, she made the trip beautifully and is now resting peacefully with her new family.

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, we have two thoroughbred programs. 1: We sanctuary for life Thoroughbreds that are too wounded to go into any other program. 2: Once a Thoroughbred is healed, we will place them into our up and coming programs for children and handicapped adults. No animal is adopted out. This is a protection against any further risk of abandonment or mistreatment. 100% of the donations goes to taking care of our angelic animals. The sanctuary is located on 151 acres of pasture at the base of Mount Shasta in Northern California.
In 2012, Humanity for Horses was birthed 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. As a result, this birthed a need for collaborative equine rescue efforts. 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.
To date, 346 animals have been rescued, not including cats and dogs, 184 of them being horses. We also help feed horses that are not on site. 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.

Student vets use Humanity for Horses
as a way to use their talents
A number of students, who had just graduated, or are graduating from Oregon State University came to the sanctuary with a professional vet, Dr. John Goodell overseeing them, and gelded all our 36 alpacas, as a way to put their education to use. We were so ecstatic, as we could not afford to geld the 36 alpacas. All went seamlessly and the alpacas are now getting along much more peacefully. We are now planning to open the sanctuary as a learning facility for up and coming veterinarians. The students were excited and loved the sanctuary and the animals at the sanctuary, picked up on the excitement and loved the students.
