Horse Slaughter: What You Can Do
We must all do our part if we want this cruel, unspeakable, and un-American practice to end.
All Americans who want to permanently stop the slaughter of America’s horses and close the borders to transportation of equines from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico and any other country for the purpose of slaughter, need to become pro-active in reaching out to their Congresspersons to register their opinion. You can use the links below to find contact information – phone calls and/or handwritten letters are very effective.
- To find the contact information for your House Representative, please go to www.house.gov. Ask your Congressional rep. to support a ban on the slaughter of horses for human consumption in the U.S. and prohibit transporting them to other countries for the purpose of slaughter.
- Every American has two U.S. Senators. To find the contact information for your two U.S. Senators, please go to www.senate.gov. Contact your Senators and urge them to oppose any motion to construct equine slaughterhouses in your state. Also, please urge them to support a ban on any equine from your state from being shipped out of state for the purpose of slaughter for human consumption.
- Writing letters to the editors of your local newspapers and to national magazines is a great way to keep this issue in the news. Also, calling into live talk shows on radio and on television talk shows is another way to get information out to the public about horse slaughter.
