Billboard Against Horse Slaughter... A Community To Be Proud Of

Written by: Phelps Media Group, Inc.
Client: Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue
Release Date: 2012-01-02

Recently a billboard was put up in Palm Beach County regarding the issue of horse slaughter and specifically against horse slaughter. Pure Thoughts Inc. Horse Rescue stands against horse slaughter and always will, it is a horrific end for a horse's life, our goal and mission has always been and always will be the welfare of the horses.

Pure Thoughts did not have any prior notice of this billboard, we found out through the newspaper, nor did we contribute financially. Every penny we raise goes directly to the care of the horses at the rescue and we struggle daily to keep the rescue operating. Although a billboard for the rescue could help raise funds, increase adoptions and encourage volunteers, it is just not a luxury we can afford.

As a result of this billboard being put up in Palm Beach County there have been derogative and disparaging remarks posted on various pages in the Facebook community regarding the Wellington Equestrian Community, the Equestrian Show Community and even the Polo Community as well as the Palm Beach community, stating everything from ignorance of horse slaughter to ambivalence of horse welfare. Pure Thoughts does not appreciate, condone or stand by any of these comments made. They are clearly from people who do not know this community and it's dedication to the horses and their welfare. Although we have done our best to retort to all comments made we do not have the time to go in search of every uneducated post so we want to make it clear that not only do we stand by our community and all it entails during show season and all year long ... we are PROUD to be a part of it.

In 2012, Pure Thoughts will be entering its' tenth year. Ten years of taking in horses, rehabilitating the ones that need it and placing horses in good, quality homes. This in itself speaks for the quality of the horse community of Palm Beach County and throughout the State of Florida. There is good and bad everywhere.. but to us.. you, our community, that is the heart and soul of this rescue.

Please feel free to come out anytime, whether to volunteer, adopt, donate or just for a visit. You can also see some of our amazing horses for adoption here..

We wish everyone and the horses a healthy, safe and happy New Year!
