Shiloh is a Federally Recognized 501(c)(3) Non Profit, Tax ID # 20-5665871 Donations are tax deductable and you will be sent a receipt for your records.
*NOTE: Due to the economy and rising hay prices, Shiloh is not currently taking in any horses or attending feedlots or auctions. We will attend auctions in the future, but for now we have to remain responsible to the many horses already in the rescue.
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of these donations will go directly toward buying a slaughter bound horse from the slaughter auction or off of the slaughter feedlot.
The money will remain in this Paypal account until the next auction, when it will be withdrawn or transferred and put toward paying Shiloh's auction bill or the feedlot contact. Shiloh has been known to buy a slaughter bound horse for as little as $7.00, so any amount truly does make a difference!
Horses and Burros crammed into a small pen at the auction. There were 10 in this one pen, most shaking with fear. Most of them went to the Killer Buyer.
