Group Description

There are no "set rules" or standards for rescue "ethics." This site was created out of the need to set down, once and for all, some "real rescue" ethical "rules" for those who want to offer maximum protection for their rescued horses. There are plenty of so called "rescues" "out there" who profess to be in the business of helping equines but their policies are such that are detrimental to the horses, benefit only themelves, or HURT the rescue movement as a whole. There are too many "rescues" with very bad policies that do little to protect the horses; outright sales, "adoptions" and/or transfers of rescued animals with no-contracts, or "expireing" contracts. There are fraudulent and/or deceitful practices, "rescues" that are "OK" with breeding, breeding farms that claim to be rescues, rescues that "supply" breeding farms, and feedlot "rescues" that act as agents of kill-buyers to help the KBs sell off some of their horses. These feedlot "rescues" sell the horses outright, no contracts, to anybody with the right amount of cash. These "feedlot rescues" generally fail to disclose all known defects and the horses are sold at greatly inflated prices. These "feedlot" rescuers are also the ones INFAMOUS for overlooking feedlot & auction house cruelty & abuse, as in "Regrets" case; http://tinyurl.com/34nr8ng

We believe that the IDEAL goal for any rescue should be to provide MAXIMUM LIFELONG PROTECTION for the rescued animal. We also believe that there is only ONE WAY to obtain that sort of "durability" of life-long protection and that is through LIFELONG CONTRACTS with "built-in" no breeding clauses. Of course, we realize contracts are broken all the time, but we are talking "IDEAL" here as something we can only strive & hope for, but CAN and SHOULD do IF indeed it is the best interest of the animal the "rescuers" have in mind. Contracts will be broken, yes, but the LEAST we can do is try. Anthing less would be a dis-service to the horse(s)
