Horse Lovers United Inc (HLU) was founded in August 1992, for the purpose of finding new homes for horses that were losing their home. Ninety percent of these horses have been Standardbreds, because their value after racing has not been recognized fully by the general public. All breeds are helped to the extent of our resources. 100,000 plus equines are sent to slaughter every year from the United States, because their owners do not want them any more. In some cases, their owners have circumstances where they cannot keep them any more. It is our goal to help as many as possible, and to find solutions to stop horses from going to slaughter. Google "horse slaughter" to see graphic images of what horses go through. Horses have helped mankind throughout history. They deserve a humane end to life. Google "Horses Helping Inmates" and that is one solution to helping horses. If all horse lovers could join together and contact the officials in their state and do what you can to promote this idea. There are homes available in the general population, but it is sometimes hard to match the right horse with the right human. Other options for horses no longer wanted by their owners are therapy programs. There are all kinds; for disabled children & adults, veterans suffering from PTSD, individuals of all ages suffering from depression and more. There are most likely therapy programs in every state. There are always people looking for pleasure horses and sometimes even companion horses.https://globalnews.ca/news/4016821/horses-helping-inmates-at-okanagan-jail/https://www.humanesociety.org/news/animal-protection-groups-applaud-senate-bill-ban-horse-slaughterhttps://secure.aspca.org/action/safe-act-2019https://www.ridinghome.com/page-ushttps://mdequinetransition.org/https://ahomeforeveryhorse.com/https://unitedhorsecoalition.org/

Please look for your representatives and senators and contact them and tell them you want something done about the cruel way in which horses are killed. Ask them if there are currently any bills pending to stop this. Ask them to please support any bills and to work to get them passed. Ask them about proposing a bill that states all unwanted equines must be euthanized humanely. Ask them to pass a bill that will classify all equines as companion animals.https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials
