OUR PATRON

Jann Arden has created a campaign to help in the fight against the live draft horse shipments to Japan.  You can find more info at her web site.  Here you can order various products to show your support for the horses.

"Canada should be leading the world when it comes to animal welfare— and yet we drop the ball in so many ways. We ship thousands upon thousands of live horses for the overseas meat trade and grotesquely fail with their treatment. Often in tight cages of three or four - for days."

"This is an amazing, important organization... donate if you can. Even a toonie makes a difference."  

PLEASE NOTE:

 The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition is committed to fulfilling its goals through peaceful and lawful means. Therefore this coalition will neither knowingly, or willfully, participate in, or condone, incite, or promote others to participate in unlawful or non-peaceful activities. Nor will it harass, encourage others to harass, or support those who do.

Please share this site on Social Media, and with  friends who own horses but may not be aware of the horse slaughter industry in Canada, with friends who may be taking conjugated equine estrogens for menopause, with doctors who prescribe CEE drugs, and with any friends considering taking their horse to a sale barn or an auction.

Whistle blowers are invited to contact the CHDC regarding violations occurring during horse slaughter or transport to slaughter.  Are you a retired CFIA veterinarian, an ex-slaughter house employee, a transport driver or feedlot operator with knowledge of animal abuse, or other violations? Are you a track veterinarian who has evidence of horses "run" on phenylbutazone or other drugs, and then shipped to slaughter? Anonymity guaranteed!
