We are pleased to share with you videos from the 2013 American Equine Summit hosted and organized by Susan Wagner, President and Founder of Equine Advocates. Please share these on your Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn Pages and Websites.
The information is invaluable and pertinent given the current push to open U.S. slaughterhouses by a group of small but powerful special interests, as well as the recent horsemeat scandel in Europe.
80% of American’s are opposed to horse slaughter. Pelase make your voices heard by contacting your lawmakers in both the Senate and the House of Representatives and urge them to co-sponsor and work for the passage of the SAFE Act: S.541 and H.R.1094, which would ban the slaughter of America’s horses for human consumption here and in other countries.
