Call to Action!

                              Seeking justice for Justice the horse

                                    Can a neglected animal sue?


                         

Justice is an 8-year-old American quarter horse who used to be named Shadow. And when he was named Shadow, he suffered. At a veterinarian’s exam last year, he was 300 pounds underweight, his black coat lice-ridden, his skin scabbed and his genitals so frostbitten that they might still require amputation.

The horse had been left outside and underfed by his previous owner, who last summer pleaded guilty to criminal neglect. And now Justice, who today resides with other rescued equines on a quiet wooded farm within view of Oregon’s Cascade mountains, is suing his former owner for negligence. In a lawsuit filed in his new name in a county court, the horse seeks at least $100,000 for veterinary care, as well as damages “for pain and suffering,” to fund a trust that would stay with him no matter who is his caretaker.

Utah Roundup Sparks Public Outrage


Photographs taken by AWHC photographer Steve Paige of a helicopter nearly hitting wild horses and causing them to crash through barbed wire at the BLM roundup underway this week in Utah are sparking public outrage.  AWHC has called for an investigation of the obvious violations of the agency’s own animal welfare policies at the roundup, which is taking place in the Bible Springs Complex and Sulphur Mountains HMA. The photos of the mistreatment of wild horses have been seen by nearly a million people on social media and are raising public awareness about the government’s cruel treatment of these federally-protected icons. Read more on our roundup coverage and complaint to the BLM by clicking below.
 


                                   Ben

 

Last week we were saddened to tell you about the passing of  our sweet and gentle giant "Big Ben". Unexpectedly, we had to make the very tough decision to euthanize him. Unfortunately were not prepared for the increase in cost of euthanasia. Because of Ben's size, our veterinarian had to administer a double dose of the drug needed to put him to rest peacefully and humanely. In addition, the cost of burial was more than expected. If you would like to contribute to Ben's veterinary costs, please log on to www.equinevoices.org, or by calling the office at 520-398-2814 or contacting Manny@equinevoices.org.

We are grateful to our veterinarian for his compassion and care during Ben's passing. Thank you Dr. Escalada for your love!
