Help

Wildfires in California are continuing to have a devastating impact on people and animals. This is especially true of horses. And that’s where we come in.

Many horses have burned to death. Many horses have been severely burned and need our help and support. Evacuated horses need food and water.

We are doing all we can, but we need your help. Help us refill our Emergency Fund.

We have nearly exhausted our Emergency Fund providing wildfire relief for horses. There is still so much more to do.

Typically we use our Emergency Fund for winter hay to those in need. And winter is only just starting. But we couldn’t ignore the many pleas for help for the wildfire horses.

Three things we are doing for Premarin horses

Here are three things we are doing for PMU — or Premarin — horses right now:

1. Lobbying the FDA with the help of a specialist firm to return the word “equine” on all Premarin type drugs so it reads “conjugated equine estrogens” the way it did, and should*.

2. Working in China with a massive social media campaign warning women against the dangers of the Premarin family of drugs. This is where most of the horses are and where the largest volume of Premarin type drugs are being used. 

3. Leafleting across the U.S. at women’s hospitals and clinics warning women about the dangers of the Premarin family of drugs and educating them on alternatives (expanding into Canada with your help).

This work is informative and necessary, and potentially life saving for women and the mares and foals used to make the drug then cast off.

We are the only voices PMU horses have. When we remove the demand for these drugs we remove the demand for pregnant mare’s urine thereby freeing the horses.

Share this with the women in your life and anyone else who might be exposed to this drug.
