Please Report Suspected Abuse!

If you suspect a horse or other animal is being neglected, abused, or malnourished, please contact the Illinois Department of Agriculture at 217-782-4944.  The Department of Agriculture will contact SHARE to assign us the investigation as needed. All Reports are confidential.



We work with the Department of Agriculture along with state and municipal authorities in addressing situations where horses need to be rescued as a result of our investigations.



The Starved Horse

My heart hurts because I am not loved.

I wish I could fly away just like a dove.

My tail no longer swishse back and forth.

I have lost everything that I was worth.

I am too skinny and too weak to care.

Something that no one should have to bear.

Maybe I will get fed today.

Why am I teasing myself this way?

I know I will not get food or water.

To my owner I am just a bother.

They might love me I try to think.

Nicer thoughts I try to seek.

Today I will lay down in the mud.

Fall asleep and never wake up.
