Welcome to “For the Love of Horses” a blog from Keith Dane , vice president of equine protection at The Humane Society of the United States. Like you, we at The HSUS love horses—and we celebrate the special bond we all share with them. We’re dedicated to protecting equines from abuse, abandonment, slaughter and other forms of cruelty, and work to achieve this goal by guiding and transforming public policy, assisting law enforcement with rescues and investigations, and educating the horse-owning public about responsible care and stewardship.
