Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue facilitates the rescue of draft and draft cross horses from slaughter, abuse, and neglect. Gentle Giants houses over 150 beautiful, adoptable horses ready to start their new life! Tours are available by appointment, please. Gentle Giants serves to protect some of the rarest breeds of horses. Draft horses comprise less than 1% of the overall general equine population, yet are grossly overrepresented in horse slaughter- comprising up to 6% of horses butchered for human consumption. Gentle Giants educates the public through the use of brochures, pamphlets, and public presentations on the topics of: horse slaughter and cruelty, the responsibilities of horse ownership, the over-population and over-breeding of horses, and how over-breeding contributes to the horse slaughter industry.
