We began our mission in 2017 when several of our members bailed three horses from the kill pen and gave them forever homes. In May of 2018 we formed Southern Maryland Equine Miracles, Ltd. and later that year was approved as a 501c3, non-profit equine rescue. Since then, we have been able to assist with saving sixteen horses and placing them in safe homes. We continue to monitor each adopted equine to ensure they will never again end up in the auction/kill pen pipeline.
We are a nonprofit organization focuses on ending the shipment of American horses for the purpose of slaughter and human consumption. We support legislation for that goal and are dedicated to helping horses in need and placing them in loving, forever homes. We strive to educate the public on how horses end up in kill pens and how they can protect their equine pets. Remember, any horse that is sold can end up at slaughter.
Your donation helps with rescuing horses from bad situations, providing them medical, farrier and dental care and continued maintenance of feed and hay.
