Give Horses HopeWFLF’s Saving America’s Horses Initiative is an international consortium of veterinarians, equestrian professionals, equine welfare experts, researchers, horse advocates, scientists, film and television artists, and concerned citizens working in concert to promote wild horse preservation initiatives with a focus on the prevention of equine cruelty and ending the slaughter of America's horses. The Initiative supports comprehensive and science based solution oriented models that lead to systemic change, reduce suffering, and cultivate a more compassionate society. SAHI's wild horse preservation component serves as an educational platform for the protection of wildlife. Through long term sanctuary preserves wild horses and burros removed from America's rangelands can be returned to freedom through release back into Natural habitats.

The Saving America’s Horses Initiative through its infrastructure and educational multimedia resources provides a powerful and lasting impact on society toward breaking the cycle of animal cruelty for America’s horses by cultivating action and inspiring social change.

WFLF's Saving America’s Horses Initiative and its ‘Give Horses Hope’ campaign is dedicated to wild horse preservation and the prevention of equine cruelty through elevating lifesaving stewardship and the healing hearts of horses. The program strives to inspire the public to take a more active role in protecting and caring for wild and domestic horses. Through humane education, the program delivers a broad and balanced reflection of compelling prevention, conservation and preservation ethics—ways that illuminate how letting go of the old can lead to paths of healing and harmonious coexistence.

“SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES – A Nation Betrayed” is a must see film for anyone who cares about a horse.

I have been involved with horses and also in the thoroughbred racing industry nearly all my life. I have likewise been involved with several organizations that provide homes for thoroughbreds after the end of their racing careers. Yet this film was a sobering wake up call to the need for all horsemen and horsewomen to do more to ensure that our beloved horses are protected.

I now understand the economic and political landscape that has prevented a Federal Anti-slaughter bills from being passed through the legislature. We can "take care of our own" without any need at all for slaughter in the United States or elsewhere.

- Bing Bush Jr., Equine Attorney

Bing Bush"I urge the leaders in the Thoroughbred industry to set an example for the rest of the industry to actively get behind SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, the Initiative and the Movie, and support the legislation that will put an end to horse slaughter" — Bing Bush Jr., equine attorney

"We strongly support all legislative initiatives which will bring horse slaughter to a swift end." — Staci and Arthur Hancock, Thoroughbred owners and breeders, Stone Farm, Paris, KY

Nick Zito"SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is so important to shed light on the reality of what is happening to our horses everyday in this country. We have to protect these magnificent animals," says Nick Zito, Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse trainer.

“As more race tracks scrambleShelley Abrams to implement programs to protect thoroughbreds at the end of their careers, it is important to remember that this same horrible fate is imposed on many that never have a racing career.” — Shelley Abrams, Racehorse Owner, Co Founder Americans Against Horse Slaughter.

Dr. Nena Winand"As a veterinarian, I believe that it is my responsibility to treat all of my patients in a humane manner. Looking at the condition of slaughter-bound horses, I could never explain to a client or to a child what is humane about their transport, and I would certainly never recommend this avenue of disposing of a horse to a client." — Dr. Nena J. Winand, DVM, PhD
