Many of my readers know that we are no longer pulling horses off the kill pen lots across the nation. The business of saving those lives has become a nasty profit making business for the kill pen owners. Because this way of doing business for the kill pens has become a profitable way to dupe the public and quadrulpe profits, we are refocusing our efforts locally. There continues to be a huge need for orphaned foals and pregnant mares up in Northern Calif. and Northern Nevada. Our interest is to work with another organization well established up north that takes in the critical care foals (out of northern Nevada) and yet another organization helping the mustangs in Northen Cal. PMR feels we can better use our resources by putting our efforts closer to home.
Please read the following article. It is well written, and accurate. It also demonstrates the huge shift in the way the kill pens are now doing business. Back in the early years PMR rescued many, many damaged, ill, crippled, or bucking bronco mares along with their foals off the lot. Read how all that has changed. Our poor horses need us more than ever!
