If You See An Ad For a "Free Horse"

from - [email protected] 

With the spread of foot and mouth disease, horse flesh is at a premium and slaughterhouses cannot keep up with the demand from Europe and Japan. As a horse rescue, we have many older horses and horses with medical problems, generally unwanted horses.

We have seen an alarming increase in people interested in our companion horses, horses that never brought any interest before. The dealers are slick, they bring their kids, pose as a loving home and if we adopted to them, we know the horses would be at the next auction being sold for slaughter.

Whenever you see an ad for a "free" horse, please notify MER or call and warn the people of the danger of their horse(s) ending up at auction. This is a serious problem! MER is trying to educate the public on the plight of all these horses and we can use your help."
