Erika, there are plenty of slaughter houses in the U.S.; it's just the foreign owned equine slaughter houses that were all closed down.
I have a small, locally owned slaughter house near me. There's nothing different about it than the bigger operations except that it's small, and family owned and operated.
They have a small stockyard off to the side, and the slaughtering and processing goes on inside the building. They have a small store out front, but if you're having your own animals processed, you deal directly with the main butcher and not the sales staff.
