About our cause

Our cause is Horses. Horses, known for their grace and beauty, are loved by many. Yet few people are aware that thousands of healthy horses are killed annually simply because they aren't fast enough to race — or that the brutality of jumps racing results in an alarming rate of horse injuries and on-track fatalities. Your support will strengthen Animals Australia's public awareness initiatives to expose cruelty in the horse racing industry, and ramp up pressure on governments to immediately ban jumps racing and increase protection for all racehorses.

A personal message from Animals Australia:
Our target: $ 1,000
So far we've raised: $ 390

We're raising money to help protect horses from cruelty. Behind the glamour of horse racing is a grim reality that is still unknown to many Australians. Through Animals Australia's work this dark side to horse racing is being exposed, so that we can ensure horses are protected from cruelty.

The ugly falls and deaths on track may have placed jumps racing in the headlines,... but this is only the tip of the ice berg of what horses endure. In this profit-driven industry — an industry that still allows horses to be beaten with whips — there is no retirement plan for most animals. Every year thousands of race horses are sent to slaughter, for no other reason than that they are not fast enough to win.

Animals Australia campaigns to expose and end the cruel practices of the racing industry. By lobbying politicians and raising public awareness of the plight of these graceful animals, we can empower more people not to support this cruel industry and also bring about laws to protect horses.

Your kind contribution will assist Animals Australia in exposing the cruel side of horse racing to the general public, and will help create a better, brighter future for all horses.
