CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS TODAY AND HELP END HORSE SLAUGHTER FOREVER!

Today is the National Call-In Day for Horses! Together, we have closed all U.S. horse slaughter plants. Now we need to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311) to end the transport to slaughter of American horses to Mexico and Canada.

It is a new year and a crucial time to make your voices heard. Let’s light up the phones on Capitol Hill to send the message loud and clear that we want a permanent ban on horse slaughter now.

We are tracking the impact of your calls, so click here to let us know you called your legislators.

Finally, please tell all of your friends and family to call their legislators today and throughout this week.

Your calls have made a difference in the past, so please make the call today. Let’s ban horse slaughter in 2008.

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle
President & CEO
The Humane Society of the United States

National Call-In Day for Horses is Tuesday, January 22nd!

Even though the last horse slaughterhouses in the U.S. have been shut down, thousands of horses are still sent to Mexico and Canada every year to be killed for meat. Only the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311) can end the export of American horses for slaughter over the border.

The vast majority of Americans strongly oppose the slaughter and consumption of horses, and our laws should reflect their humane values. Please join millions of others across the nation in sending Congress a message that voters want them to take action to help horses now!

On Tuesday, January 22nd, please call your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative and politely urge them to support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. Get phone numbers for your elected officials.

Please also forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to help end horse slaughter.
