Shut Down Farm Accused Of Animal Cruelty

Target: Javier Salazar, Sheriff of Bexar County in Texas

Goal: Shut down farm accused of animal cruelty.

A total of 46 horses were removed from Schwartz Farms following many reports of cruelty and abuse. Despite the facility’s claims of being a rehabilitation center for neglected horses, employees have reported that the horses are malnourished and underweight, some even starving to death. Additionally, reports say that other animals on the farm have suffered cruelty, such as the refusal to milk a mother sheep after her baby was born without a head and thus unable to nurse.

The fact that this farm advertises itself as a rehabilitation center despite the alleged maltreatment of the animals is a disgrace. Reports have said that the neglected horses look healthier and happier when they first come in, growing thin and gaunt and sick during their time at Schwartz. Some of the horses have even died of starvation due to the low quality of their feed.

We cannot let this continue. The horses have been rescued and will be placed in competent care, but many more animals on this farm are suffering from cruelty and neglect. Sign this petition to demand Schwartz Farms be shut down and its animals rescued before more damage can be done.


Dear Sheriff Salazar,

Schwartz Farms in the city of Converse has been accused of horribly mistreating its animals, most notably its horses. According to news reports, many of the farm’s employees have reported instances of such cruelty to your office, and some have even quit their jobs at that farm.

You must call for the farm to be shut down. The facility advertises itself as a horse rehabilitation center, but according to reports the healthy horses that are taken in soon lose tremendous amounts of weight due to malnutrition and poor diet, and some of the horses have even died of starvation.

The horses have all been rescued, but many other animals in the care of Schwartz are still likely suffering. The farm must not be allowed to continue to operate, especially under the false claim that it is a rehabilitation center. Shut them down as soon as possible.

    This is the seventh petition I signed this afternoon, and I’m just boggled at the disgusting abuse allowed to go on.

    But I’ll NEVER stop signing.

    Please shut down this hell hole!!!

  3. Is every second person an animal abuser? This never stops – I can’t believe so many humans have this abhorrent trait. We truly are the worst species. Even our magistrates and judges treat animal abusers leniently, rarely handing out punishment. Like many others, I prefer animal company over humans any day.

  4. I signed this petition for the horses but I’m very confused by the statement that said the baby sheep was born without a head and therefore unable to nurse.
    If the baby was born without a head I don’t think it was alive.
    But they thought the Sheep should be hand milked so they could feed the baby…?
    If this is a typo shouldn’t this have been proof read before it was posted.
