The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition's mission is to protect and defend horses from abuse, neglect and slaughter. They are a non-profit organization, volunteer driven, and are the best source of information on horse slaughter in this country. Please take the time to visit their website and learn more about the issue. Many horse people still believe the myths and misconceptions about slaughter that have been used for years to justify what is no longer necessary today. Everything you want to know about horse slaughter, and then some, is available on their website. They also have promotional items for sale to support the cause.
