Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We Speak Up for Horses bound for slaughter and those neglected, abused, or discarded by rescuing and rehoming these horses. We also educate the public about horse slaughter, horse welfare laws, and what it means to be a responsible horse owner. Our work is driven by the belief that education seeds compassion, a life-long commitment to our horses and a respect for all life.

We are offering training to local law enforcement and animal control officers to apply animal welfare laws when addressing neglect of horses as well as educating in the field of recognizing neglect/abuse situations.

When funds and space allows, we take in neglect cases and/or horses in danger to go to slaughter. Once in our possession we assure that these horses are rehabilitated and trained to become adoptable.

Our facility has stalls for a total of 24 horses as well as pastures for a total of 32 acres.
We have the use of another facility with a run-in barn and attached large pastures for horses which are in healthy conditions.
We employ a local equine vet who can be reached day and night and is only a few miles away from our facility.

We have grown from a six horse barn to a farm on 32 acres with a total of 24 stalls and an indoor arena.
We have been able to replace all the fencing, add a hay barn and improve the facility in general.

We are hoping to expand at some point in the future by opening another facility close to Louisville, KY.
