The Group Works for Foals project was a program put into effect to go against the meatpacking industry by bidding for a group of 17 foals. The people behind the efforts were able to successfully outbid the industry giants and then place the horses into local settings.

Seven of the foals found their way to a regional sanctuary while the rest were sent to sanctuaries located in other states, including California, Washington, and Arizona. Even though the 17 foals represented only a small part of the large number of horses that are sent to meatpacking plants, it was considered a victory in the fight against inhumane treatment of animals.
