About

We work hard to make sure each horse is given the proper care and so much love. Volunteers are the heart and soul of this organization and without their support, we're not sure how this rescue would even function.

Equine welfare is the primary concern here at Pure Thoughts. Our mission is based on the realization that we, as a nation, have depended on these horses for centuries and must take responsibility for their lives. Horses give us their heart and soul whether through work, sport, entertainment, or recreation. To use a horse only as long as it fulfills our needs, then to subject it to physical and/or mental abuse and subsequent death, is a violation of that horse as a living being as well as a violation of our ethical and moral compass.

Horses, yearlings and foals bound for slaughter would have been brutally tortured and slaughtered so that they could be served as a delicacy in foreign countries. Horse Welfare is the primary concern at Pure Thoughts. Our mission is based on the realization that we, as a nation, have domesticated these horses and must take responsibility for their lives. Horses give to us their heart and soul, whether for work, sport, entertainment or recreation, the horse only knows to give. To use a horse only as long as it fulfills our needs, then subject it to physical and/or mental abuse and subsequent death, whether on the slaughterhouse floor, abandoned in a field no longer being cared for, or even in a stall no longer being provided its’ physical needs is a violation of that horse’s right; Rights that only we can supply the horse, after all we have domesticated them.
