Based in south East Queensland with Sanctuaries on the Gold Coast, Scenic Rim and The Lockyer Valley, Save A Horse Australia Horse Rescue and Sanctuary was established by Amanda Vella to take in unwanted, neglected, abused and slaughter bound horses, rehabilitating them and finding them the perfect forever home.
The penned section of the local sales are for "meat competition", horses deemed worthless by other human beings who don't seem to care where the horses end up. Maybe they are unhandled, aged, sick or injured, but sometimes perfectly healthy, sound horses end up in the meat section for what ever reason. When we bid on dogger horses we make sure we only bid against meat buyers. These four horses are our latest rescue.
1. Unhandled mare and colt foal - Penny and Cooper 2. Unhandled colt about 7-8 months old - Chevy 3. Aged palomino mare about 20 years old - Holly

We out bid the slaughter house for all 4 horses. Penny and Cooper were $340, Chevy was $90 and Holly was $220. We attend these sales once every few months and we can only rescue what our funding allows us to rescue. Please help us help the horses by making a donation today.
