Get America’s youth involved in ending horse slaughter


Getting America’s youth involved in ending horse slaughter is imperative, and an activity they are likely to remember throughout their lives.

A major concern for parents, teachers and caregivers, is how do you explain something as brutal as horse slaughter to youngsters in terms that are not too disturbing.

We have found a lovely website that involves youth in all types of activism, teaching them to cherish and protect our Mother Earth and her inhabitants. It is called the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

They have a page called “Let’s End Horse Slaughter!” which should be appropriate for just about any disposition.


Jo-Claire Corcoran of the Equine Welfare Alliance has established a letter writing campaign for children to members of Congress and the President.
