Horse Rescue Day

Horse Rescue Day

Many people love horses for their kindness, loyalty, and beauty. Horses can be seen frequently on farms and at rodeos, and they are valuable assets.

However, abuse of horses can still be committed despite this fact. Horse Rescue Day is an awareness day that focuses on horse welfare and raises awareness about this tragic reality.

Horse welfare is a new concept. It has only been possible in the last few centuries. The Western religions and philosophical views about horses held that they had no sensation of pain during the 17th century. Rene Descartes’s theory about the animal machine inspired this idea. In Islamic cultures, horses are highly respected.

Horse deaths were common from the middle ages to the early 1900s and were often ignored. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was established and the novel Black Beauty published. This is when the topic of horse protection became a part of daily conversation.

Over the next century, this debate grew and was passed in the United States as well as Europe. Many laws were passed to safeguard horses from abuse, and the public became more concerned about horses’ welfare and well-being.

The 20th and 21st centuries saw huge changes in the way that people treated horses. Anti-slaughter movements, as well as organizations like the ASPCA, emerged to help protect animals from cruelty. Many organizations have their own procedures and guidelines for horse rescue. Many rescues do not receive federal or state funding.

Horse Rescue Day is a day that aims to highlight the need for rescue organizations to be able to care for neglected and abused horses. This holiday encourages people to help these horses and to donate to local rescue shelters.

Donate money and supplies to your local shelter if you are passionate about horses’ welfare and protection. Volunteer at the shelter to care for horses if you are passionate about horses.

Volunteering is a great way for horses to make friends, build lasting relationships, and support the shelter in any way you can. To show your support for horses and to advocate for their protection, share this holiday on social media.
