Mission Statement:
To end the suffering of innocent horses by reducing
the number of unwanted births. 

     Thousands of horses are born each year as a result of thoughtlessness on the part of mare and stallion owners. It is the plea of GERL for these owners to consider very carefully the future of resulting offspring before permitting their horses to reproduce. Equine rescue organizations across the nation are overwhelmed by the growing number of unwanted and neglected horses.
    Our organization believes that the first step in eliminating this problem is to reduce the number of foals produced each year. We strongly urge owners of equine of breeding age to geld their stallions and resist breeding their mares unless they intend to keep and use the resulting progeny, or they have a reasonable expectation that the foal produced will be a marketable animal.
    In an effort to reduce the number of stallions and to encourage the use of only top quality animals for breeding purposes, GERL has initiated our Stallion to Gelding Program. As an incentive to stallion owners, we will pay $75 toward the cost of gelding any male equine in Georgia for individuals who require financial assistance. Two horse limit per owner, please. Owners may use the veterinarian of their choice and must take full responsibility for post operative care.

Applications must be mailed and approved by GERL before arrangements are made with attending veterinarians..
