Together we are moving closer to ending their torment
We have been fighting against the long-distance transportation of horses across Europe for slaughter since our charity was founded in 1927. With your support we have already made incredible progress in stamping out this needless long-distance trade but we can’t stop now as we move ever closer to our goal.

One of the most commonly used slaughter routes – from Poland to Puglia in south east Italy – takes in excess of three days. During those awful journeys horses can suffer everything from stress and exhaustion to disease and even depression – completely shutting down from their surroundings.
In 2001, 165,000 horses endured these journeys; in 2010 it was around 50,000 and in 2016 it was around 30,000. Today we estimate the number to be around 26,000 horses but we must keep up the momentum to continue on our journey towards making that number zero by 2027.
Your donation will help us achieve the ‘final mile’ of this campaign that has had such a profound impact on the welfare of many, many thousands of horses over the years.
Whatever the future relationship of the UK with the EU, please take a moment to support this vital work – together we will end this suffering.
