This Melbourne Cup, place a ‘winning bet’ by supporting horse rescue & advocacy!

While the racing industry continues to rake in gambling money on the back of horse cruelty, the incredible people from these horse rescue sanctuaries choose to 'place their bets' on compassion instead.

The horse racing industry rakes in billions of dollars on the back of horses that are routinely whipped, injured, and slaughtered when they're not 'profitable' anymore.
