Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue facilitates the rescue of draft and draft cross horses from slaughter, abuse, and neglect.  Gentle Giants is one of the loudest national voices fighting to permanently end the slaughter of U.S. horses for human consumption.  We’ve rescued over 1,000 horses who have been adopted into permanent, loving homes. We house over 150 horses at our 340+ acre Maryland facility, and offer lifetime sanctuary for those horses who are less likely to be adopted.
