Welcome to OPEN

Approximately 100,000 horses are sent every year to slaughter facilities in Canada and Mexico., according to information published by The Humane Society of the United States. The USDA has documented that "92.3 percent of the horses sent to slaughter are in good condition and are able to live out a productive life.”

The goal of OPEN is to rescue as many of those at risk horses as possible and help, if even in a small way, reduce the number of horses that are unnecessarily killed.
