Kathleen Howe, who founded Days End Farm Horse Rescue in 1989, will be honored at a retirement and holiday celebration in Ellicott City, Md. on Dec. 14.

Howe handed the operation over to Erin Ochoa in September. The facility rescued more than 1,800 horses since its opening and has expanded from the 10 acres at Howe's home to its current base on a 58-acre farm in Woodbine, Md.

In Howe's 24 years running the rescue, 94 percent of Days End Farm horses were adopted and just last year the facility saw 1,300 people provide more than 57,000 hours of service support its function.

“I felt like the farm was doing so well and that we have such a phenomenal staff and great board that it was the perfect time for me to retire,” Howe told The Baltimore Sun.

    Thank you Days End Farm Horse Rescue!

    “Since neither the number of horses needing to be rescued nor the need to increase awareness show signs of diminishing, adding a second location where more horses could be boarded and rehabilitated tops the horse rescue’s wish list.”

    It is too easy to own, breed, wreck, discard and kill horses. Cruelty must be prevented by making horse ownership equivalent to getting a driving license and owning and operating a vehicle. Paying a registration fee or bond per horse would help prevent irresponsible ownership and breeding, pass and enforce stronger anti-animal cruelty laws and support seized and rescued horses. The creation of a national animal offender registry, based on the sex-offender registry model, is also needed.
