"Seize the Day"
Because it's Time to Make a Difference

Dear Friends:

Please consider sponsoring one of our guys, or even better, adopt one of our residents and make sure that he/she cashes in his/her winning lottery ticket for a permanent loving home. Our residents are doing great now, but we know they will blossom even more when they get lots of one-on-one attention from a loving new owner. Please e-mail us in case you have questions about a particular horse.

If you don't want to sponsor or adopt a horse but would like to help with a tax deductible donation, please consider using PayPal. Paypal is a secure, fast, reliable and free service.

And as always, please remember that every dollar makes a difference.
Thanks for caring from your Carpe Diem-Team.

In Memory of Silberprinz

Our Beloved "spokeshorse" of our rescue passed away 02/12/04 from complications due to colic. He will forever be in our hearts. Please read his story by clicking on "The Syracuse Arabians" in the left frame. We would like to thank everyone who was involved in Silberprinz' rescue, rehabilitation and his care.


Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not here. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glint on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there;I did not die

**** Celebrating Dora's Comeback ****

Dora - Before & After

Thanks to the Doris Day Animal League who generously sponsored Dora's rescue, Dora was rescued at New Holland from a terrible trip to the slaughterhouse and a barbaric death. You can read the article about Daydreamer and about Dora's and Reno's famous rescue in the Fall Issue of the "Animal Guardian" by the DDAL. [you can also read the article online on their website at]

We rescued Dora in April 2001. At New Holland she was hardly more than a "rib cage", today Dora is a beautiful horse again. Loved by her foster home, sponsors and all the members and volunteers of Carpe Diem, Dora became a Permanent Resident of our organization. Who could possibly forget the sight of this awfully neglected and abused mare that stood at New Holland, eagerly munching her hay with her few bad teeth, courageously ignoring the stressful and horrible environment she was in. One was able to put 2 fingers between her ribs and her body was covered with a horrible fungus causing her to loose all her fur in patches.

Today Dora has a completely regrown coat of fur, is happy and proud, slowly forgetting the horrors of hunger and weakness. We are celebrating Dora's powerful Comeback and want to thank all the people who helped making this miracle possible:

The Doris Day Animal League
Liz Clancy Lyons
Lillian Clancy
Kate Tonnesen & Family
KAB Stables
Dawn & Carmine Buffa

Our gratitude also goes to all our supporters and to all our friends and especially to those who have been caring about Dora and who have been following her story from the day she entered our lives.
God bless.

Anja Frazer & Directors
Carpe Diem Equine Rescue

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to rescue slaughterbound horses from so-called 'killer auctions' and neglected and abused horses from private homes.

As all charity/rescue organizations, we depend on the help and the contributions of our supporters.
If you find it in your heart to support our cause and our residents, please note that every donation is tax-deductible.

For your convenience, please consider to make a difference with an online donation. The "PAY PAL" website is absolutely secure and the donation will go directly to Carpe Diem's business account. Just click on the button below:


We attend the "New Holland Killer Sale" in New Holland, Lancaster County, PA, on a regular basis to rescue horses. We out-bid the so-called "Killer Buyers" who purchase the horses to ship them to slaughterhouses either in Canada and/or to one of the three slaughterhouses in the U.S. in Illinois and Texas, where horses are slaughtered alive for human consumption and from where the horse meat is exported to Belgium, France, and Japan.

Sometimes we come home with young, talented, ridable and healthy horses (yes, those -too- go to slaughter), and sometimes we come home with aged and/or seriously sick or injured horses (equines).

We currently have several extraordinary foster homes who quarantine and nurture the horses back to health until they are ready for adoption. Carpe Diem Equine Rescue operates with the help of Rescue- and Adoption-Coordinators and numerous volunteers in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Once the horses are rehabilitated, we search for permanent, loving new owners who are aware of the pro's and con's of adopting a rescued horse.
Due to the background, personality, or condition of some equines, certain situations warrant these horses be placed in our care indefinitely as sanctuary animals.

The new owner will be asked to pay an "adoption fee" that usually covers the price we paid for the horse at the sale plus the medical treatment. Of course we also take age, disposition, soundness, and level of training into consideration. As a result the adoption fees vary but can be expected to be between $500 and $1,000.
For our "companion" horses, horses and ponies that are NOT ridable, we are asking a flat donation in the amount of $100.

The new owner will be asked to sign a contract, stating that the adopter is not allowed to sell the horse. To use the horse for breeding is also not allowed. If we get the impression (during our bi-annual follow-up investigations) that the horse is not treated well, we have the right to take it back. No offense, this is just a precaution for the horses sake.

If the adopter cannot keep the horse any longer, for whatever reasons (we don't ask annoying questions), the horse has to be returned to our organization. Please note that we only adopt horses to homes in the following States: NJ/NY/PA.

Please click on "Horses For Adoption" in the left frame to take a look at our current residents.

Please visit our Message Board for updates. Here we keep in touch and discuss our ongoing rescue efforts and issues concerning the New Holland Killer Sale [and other auctions] in general.

Please join our New Holland Rescue e-mail list, where we inform you about horses in need of rescue as well as the progress and current status of our residents.
