Who We Are
We are an equine rescue whose large ambitions include rescuing horses and donkeys from the feed lots who would otherwise be shipped across the border to be slaughtered for human consumption. We provide them with medical attention and most importantly, find them the loving homes they deserve. Furthermore, we use different community programs to further rehabilitate the horses, who in return help to rehabilitate the individuals in these programs.
We saw the need to step forward and create a way to help the nearly 100,000 horses and donkeys that are shipped to slaughter every year to Mexico and Canada.
Our organization is supported by friends, donors and volunteers that share this same belief with us!
HOW IT BEGAN
This is literally the photo to HOW All Seated in a Barn began. Two sisters watching the Bachelorette in January of 2018. A post on social media with THIS photo and his slaughter ship date. He had less than 12 hours before he was gone forever. A few more glasses of wine and he was bought, transport was arranged and it would be 30 days before he entered our lives - changing everything.
I remember seeing him for the first time and crying. He was perfect. What was I going to do with a donkey? I knew nothing about donkeys! It wasn't until my sister and a few of our friends got together, around him, realizing we wanted to help save more horses and donkeys from the same fate, slaughter.
The rest is, well, history!
Meet The Team
We are more than individuals. We are a team. Without each other, our friends, our family, the volunteers and all those who contribute we could not do this; they are amazing.
