Manda Kalimian

Horses far and wide have a strong ally in Kalimian, president and co-founder of the Locust Valley-based Seraphim12 Foundation. The organization’s mission is to stop abuse, neglect and unnecessary, unregulated slaughter of hundreds of thousands of horses yearly in the US. They hope to raise awareness among the general public about the plight of these unwanted animals through educational programs and in-the-flesh equine presentations. Kalimian asserts that horses should be honored for all they have done to help society instead of being mistreated.
