Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue

We’ve rescued over 1,500 horses since we were founded in 2005. Many of our horses have been adopted into permanent, loving homes and we love seeing them living their new lives to the fullest! For those less likely to be adopted, we offer lifetime sanctuary at our 300+ acre facility in Maryland. We house over 150 horses at a time and bring over 300 horses to safety each year. Gentle Giants continues to be one of the loudest national voices fighting to permanently end the slaughter of U.S. horses for human consumption.
