LOUISVILLE,KY (Horse Slaughter) — We need your help and support to fight against horse slaughter at the State level. Join us.
Horse Meat Inspection Defunding
(1) If the defunding provision of USDA horse meat inspections continues so it cannot be exported for sale, we still need to continue working hard to close the transport to slaughter loophole.
(2) If the defunding provision of USDA horse meat inspections fails, we need to already be actively working at the State level to let lawmakers and elected official know its residents are strongly opposed to horse slaughter returning to U.S. soil in their State.
It doesn’t matter if horse slaughter is already banned in your State. There are movements afoot right now, specifically in Texas, to overturn the law against horse slaughter should the defunding language not make it into the Appropriations bill. Reports from feedlot operators in Texas tell us that they are scouting facilities for the re-opening of horse slaughter plants . . . plants, plural.
The Safe Act
We do not know if the federal bill banning horse slaughter — H.R. 113 — will be successful or not. It is in Committees and Subcommittees. That’s a lot to fight its way out of.
However, say that it is signed into law making the slaughter and transport of U.S. horses for slaughter illegal. There are enough paid traitors in Washington D.C. who will eagerly take blood money to overturn a ban on horse slaughter by sneaking language into an unsuspected piece of lengthy or obscure legislation.
There is no doubt about it. Pro horse slaughter forces are busy at work. We need to be busy at work against horse slaughter.
Here’s how you can help.
Take a Stand
Please fill out the following form and go on record against horse slaughter so we can compile lists of residents against it to submit to State Governors, lawmakers and elected officials. Doing it here creates an electronic trail.
You must check the box if you are opposed to horse slaughter or we cannot use your submission.
Make a Donation
Make a donation to help with expenses. It is important that we have at least one lobbyist in every State responsible for leading our campaigns.
Local lobbyists are expert in area politics, the inner workings of their State legislatures (which vary widely across the country), who are “boots on the ground” able to provide us with information we can get no other way, even if we are physically there ourselves. Local lobbyists are always immensely helpful in identifying potential powerful allies (and enemies).
Please share this message across all media platforms to help us gather large numbers of residents of every State to make a strong, solid voice against horse slaughter. Thank you!
