STOP THE STARVATION! END THE NEGLECT! Shut down Whisper Ridge Equine Sanctuary

3 Sanctuary horses at the Whisper Ridge Equine Sanctuary in Ontario Canada died of malnutrition during the 2015/ 2016 winter and unnecessarily suffered mentally and physically for prolonged periods of time. Sign my petition for justice for Music, Cider and Seek!

After months of reporting to the SPCA and OPP and having nothing done- The local community is speaking out publicly about the horrible situation at this so-called equine sanctuary. Whisper Ridge houses around 20 horses and is slowly starving them all. --WE MUST TAKE ACTION BEFORE ANY MORE GO TO THEIR GRAVES.

These horses do not receive needed vet care, hoof care, water, shelter and only enough hay to sustain a small goat. They are undernourished and have eaten the fencing rails and posts and have nearly torn down 2 wooden shelters in attempts to feed themselves for survival.

This is not the first time Whisper Ridge owner Sandra Reed's neglect and abuse has been reported to the SPCA and OPP and still nothing has been done to save these horses! Please do not let the SPCA and local police stand by and allow this to happen as they have in the past. 

These horses need to be seized and found proper loving homes!! Do not let Sandra Reed lie her way out of this and allow the SPCA to brush this under the rug like they have done so many times!! There are still 20 - 30 horses on the property that need our help and they cannot speak for themselves, so we need to stand up for them and help save their lives!

For more information about the horrible treatment these horses are subject to, read the Dodo article

The community of Peterbourough and Kawartha lakes will continue to speak for the horses of Whisper Ridge long as they cannot speak for them selves.  It is our goal to see that Sandra Reed does not accept any more retirerd horses and Is leagally banned from owning horses in the future.

Update #33 years ago
Sept 2016 1 donkey and 1 more horse released from Whisper Ridge Ranch. We are continuing to raise funds for legal fees to remove others.
Update #23 years ago
SPCA did nothing to end behavior of this repeat offender, well known for her history of abuse. We are raising funds for lawyer fees (through Go Fund Me) for a case against Sandra to see that the animals in her care are removed and she is banned from animal ownership. We won once in court. We Will Win Again! Please lend your financial support
Update #13 years ago
Horse recovery status:
- Civil case was won to release Encore: had vet & police escort for removal but Encore was gone – contract was broken between Sandra and former owner.
- OPP demanded info about Encore's location and found him at another farm in Norwood with Mikey, an off the track Standardbred pulled from Whisper Ridge.
- Rosie & Meme were also released once former owner was aware of bad state horses were in.
