Get ready for our 2017 Governor’s Day Twitter campaign against horse slaughter

MARCH AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER — Next Tuesday, March 28, 2017 is our Governor’s Day Twitter campaign against horse slaughter. Let’s get ready now.

As pro slaughter forces lobby to raise support for returning horse slaughter to US soil let’s get together and let our US Governors know that their citizens are against horse slaughter.

Your tweets should include a short message to your Governor @GovernorsName then hash tag horses, the name of your state and zip code.


I am strongly opposed to horse slaughter @GovMattBevin #horses #kentucky #40208

Keep the slaughter of #horses out of #Texas @GovAbbott from #77019

Protect our #horses from slaughter Gov @EricGreitens #missouri #63006

Horse slaughter is an UNnecessary evil. Say NO Gov @JohnKasich #horses #ohio #43004

You can see how this not only let’s our Governors know how we feel but also raises awareness around the country and particularly right where you live.

Share your ideas for some great anti horse slaughter tweets in comments using the format above.

If you have a program where you can schedule your tweets, go ahead and do them now and set them to tweet anytime on March 28.

It doesn’t matter if horse slaughter has been outlawed in your State. Plans to overturn your law may already be underway.

Remember. The final stop for a bill is the Governor’s Office where he or she will decide whether or not to sign it into law.

Not on Twitter? We have something for everyone coming up.

Want to start tweeting now? We don’t mind. But be sure to tweet on March 28 as well.

Be brief. Be polite. Thank you!

  1. Feral horses are killing large parts of the west. Their numbers are out of control. Euthanasia needs to be part of the discussion.


    1. There are no “feral” horses. Wild horse numbers are low. We know what you mean by euthanasia and bullets sometimes don’t kill them. Why don’t you go to another page instead to spread your misinformation.
