Vegetarians International Voice for Animals

Horses

Viva!'s campaign has helped to save some 70,000 horses a year. Every year, 30,000 'meat' horses leave Poland for the slaughterhouses of Italy. There is no rest, no water and no food for many on the road to misery - a five day journey across six countries. Find out more.

The recent horse meat scandal has got people thinking about what they eat. Another question people are now asking themselves is why do we share our homes with some animals but eat others? Find out more.

What can I do?

The best way to end the suffering of animals is to go vegan - or at least start in that direction. We can help you do just that. Please also share this page with your friends and family so that they know how animals suffer and how they can help end that suffering. 

Please also consider a donation to help us continue to expose animal abuse. If you like what Viva! does and want to become part of our work why not join today?
