Each year more than 137,000 American horses – including pregnant mares – are sent to inhumane slaughter facilities for international consumption. These unwanted horses, many of which are trained riding horses, have been abandoned by the people they trust only to spend their final few days alone, terrified, and abused before meeting an untimely and cruel end.
That is why Horses Without Humans was created to help rescue these neglected horses and save them from that slaughterhouse. Horses without Humans is a non-profit organization that rescues horses from slaughter, giving them proper health care, rehabilitation, training and love to prepare them for adoption and a second chance at life.
So our friends at Horses Without Humans are holding a fundraiser this upcoming Tuesday May 29th from 6pm-9pm at Gene & Georgetti Steakhouse (300 N. Franklin Street, Chicago). This fundraiser is being hosted Chicago’s own Irene Michaels, the founder of I On The Scene.
Food, wine and making a difference in our beloved horse friends should inspire you all to go online now to purchase your tickets HERE. Tickets are only $75 each. If you are unable to attend, please make a donation to our friends at Horses Without Humans at their gofundme site.
Hope to see you all there!
