We sent a shout out via email about our Fall Matching Gift fundraising campaign.

In our shout out we wrote:


We will be 15 years old on October 23. We love your acknowledging this with your $23.00 donations. They have all been doubled to $64.00. Hooray!

Ummm, $23.00 x 2 = $46.00 not $64.00. Our generous benefactor, being the kind gentleman that he is, decided that he would honor our inadvertent slip up and all $23.00 donations in response to that email became an instant $64.00 donation. How about that?

Well, the generosity continues.

Our supporter is now guaranteeing the following offer:

In honor of your 15 year anniversary on October 23rd — I will double all $23.00 donations to $46.00 and $15.00 donations to $30.00 — for the next 24 hours starting the moment you hit the “send” button to make sure you reach your goal.

• Make a $30 donation. Sign up to give $5 a month for 6 months. It cancels automatically. Truly! Note: $15.00 of that will be matched right now.

Thank you everyone for your kindness and generosity.

Best wishes, The Horse Fund

Dual campaigns can benefit all NA horses threatened with entering the slaughter pipeline

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Horse Slaughter) — Dual anti-horse slaughter campaigns launched by The Horse Fund could benefit all NA horses threatened with entering the slaughter pipeline.

Canadian horse slaughter plant owners are lining the pockets of U.S. federal lawmakers and lobbying them to ensure U.S. horses continue to go to their country for slaughter.

Horse slaughter plants in Canada are scared of the knock on effect it could have on their business if we eliminate all U.S. horses from entering the human food chain.

Ending the export of U.S. horses might very well be the final nail in the coffin of an already struggling Canadian horse slaughter industry and they know it.

Eliminating U.S. horses from the Mexican slaughter pipeline could also harm the Mexican horse slaughter industry causing one or more of their plants to shut down.

If we work together and end the slaughter of U.S. horses, think how many horses would benefit if not a single horse from the U.S. entered the slaughter pipeline. It would put kill buyers out of business, shut down those hideously cruel feedlots and eliminate the nightmare of transport to slaughter for thousands and thousands of horses.

We need to continue to work at the State and Federal levels to do this.

Matching Gift Opportunity

One of The Horse Fund’s loyal supporters who has matched many a financial contribution over the years was so impressed with our dual anti-horse slaughter campaigns he has stepped in once again with yet another matching gift opportunity for us.

Make a donation to support one campaign — Join the Horse on the Hill™ Gang — and our generous benefactor will match it dollar for dollar and donate it to the other campaign — Join Our State Anti-Horse Slaughter Campaign — both launched today here on Tuesday’s Horse.

Please give in your own currency and where necessary it will be converted into U.S. dollars at the current rate of exchange.

Thank you so very much.


It’s Secret Santa Time

Updated: Extended through December 21, 2015

Our Secret Santa this year hails from Florida. He is an avid campaigner against horse slaughter and horse theft.

He has two great matching gift offers.

1. Donate $5 or more and he will match it dollar for dollar.

He is also matching donations made over the weekend in response to our Saturday email. Thank you so much.

2. Buy a horse slaughter stop sign decal and he will make a donation matching the full sale price of each.

We are so grateful this Christmas and throughout the year for all of you who follow us, donate, get involved in our campaigns and take part with us in social media. And to all of you who have taken up the vegan lifestyle, we salute you.

Season’s Greetings. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

You remember our dear friend Anne Gumbel.

Each summer for the past two years Anne has offered amazing matching gifts for all cash donations to the Int’l Fund for Horses (while the offer lasts) to pay for lobbying and media campaigns both here and abroad on the issue of horse slaughter.

Anne feels we are on the brink of a major breakthrough in ending horse slaughter, and has offered to do a matching gift campaign exclusively with us again this year.

This year’s matching gift offer is a little different. Here are the giving options.

1. Donate $30.00 right now, or sign up to make a monthly donation of $5.00 for 6 months (it will automatically cancel) and she will match it 100%.

2. Make a donation in any amount, and Anne will match it 100%. (This offer lasts through midnight Aug. 25 EST).

These summer gifts will set us up for the months ahead and ensure we have the funds on hand when we need them.

We are so grateful to Anne for her continuing generosity to us in defense of our horses.

And we are so grateful to you for your wonderful support to us and to them.
