The mission of Equine Advocates is to rescue, protect and prevent the abuse of horses through education, investigation, rescue operations, the dissemination of information to the public and the operator of a horse sanctuary for slaughter-bound, abused and neglected horses.
Rescue, horse slaughter, abuse/neglect, wild mustangs, the PMU industry and carriage horses are the main issues Equine Advocates works on.
