Our footage was featured in three superb anti-horse slaughter documentaries: Kill Pen, Saving America's Horses, and Their Last Ride. Over the past year, each of these films was highlighted at numerous festivals, including the well-attended Equus Film Festival in New York.
Our footage and research was also used in a three-part documentary series by Alex Brown entitled Horses: Sports, Culture, and Slaughter.
2015 Equus Film Festival
Our founder and President, Sonja Meadows, was invited to be a panelist for the Horse Defenders Panel at the 2015 Equus Film Festival. This interactive panel gave us the opportunity to discuss our horse slaughter investigations in front of an interested and packed audience. It's imperative to reach out to new audiences and seasoned advocates alike in every possible venue.
The Equus Film Festival was an amazing event and Animals' Angels was thrilled to attend. It was exciting to meet so many dedicated advocates, all fighting for the same important cause: to end the slaughter of our horses once and for all.
Animals' Angels and our work uncovering the cruelty of the horse slaughter pipeline at auctions across the U.S. was showcased in a lengthy exposé in the Blood-Horse Magazine.
The Blood-Horse is a well-known publication catering to the racing industry and its followers. We were extremely pleased that they decided to run this comprehensive article, which not only features the work of Animals' Angels but also explains how Thoroughbreds all too often find themselves at kill auctions.
We hope this article will be successful in raising much needed awareness amongst the Thoroughbred community as to the fate that awaits any horse sent to auction.

We at Animals' Angels face the coming year with the determination and passion to continue the fight for the much needed changes and justice the animals so deserve.
Determined to win the battle against the rampant cruelty and mistreatment, our investigators have committed themselves to an even more demanding schedule in 2016.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our faithful and compassionate supporters who make our continued work possible. We couldn't do it without you!
