Beware!! This nonprofit appears wonderful in photos, but firsthand experience demonstrates its fraudulent and highly unethical practice of "rescuing" and shortly thereafter....SLAUGHTERING horses and other large animals. After 10 years of living in my backyard and barn, Rio, a sweet and cherished equine friend was adopted by Susan Slater and her animal "rescue" owing to the fact that his owner was becoming old and feeble. This was in the Spring. Rumors from friends who visited, warned of neglect and another home was found by someone who really wanted Rio. Did Susan Slater allow the adoption? No. Did she return our calls? No. After many lies and hedging, she SOLD Rio (along with MANY other horses) for SLAUGHTER last fall.
Blessings to all those dear animals who were cruelly betrayed after promise of rescue and sanctuary. They died a most brutal and terrifying death because of choices made by Susan Slater, even when other options existed. The ends do NOT justify the means.
