Review for Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, Washington, DC, USA
I am the director of a well organized humane organization that dates back to 1985. We spun off a horse rescue organization in 2002 and sought certification from GFAS. All was well until the issue of euthanasia came up. They would not approve an organization that EVER euthanizes for space. When asked about what they propose to do about an estimated 80,000 horse going to slaughter each year, it was as if I was speaking a foreign language. The woman I spoke with simply wouldn't answer the question. Need-less-to-say we won't be seeking accreditation. Our whole existence is based on the fact that no animal should ever suffer.....clearly not a mutual concern of the GFAS.
