Call to Action on H.R. 961

Calling all residents of Colorado, Connecticut, DC and Florida.

Are you ready to take part on behalf of horses and help get us the necessary cosponsors to blast H.R. 961, The SAFE Act of 2019, out of Committee and onto the House floor for debate and vote?

When The SAFE Act becomes law it will totally abolish the practice of slaughtering horses for human consumption. Imagine the impact on the lives of our Quarter Horses (America’s Horse), Thoroughbreds and Wild Horses & Burros. There is so very much at stake.

Magic Number — 290

Here’s how we do it.

If we get 290 cosponsors we can use the Consensus Calendar Rule and move the Bill onto the House Floor for debate and vote.

As of this writing, H.R. 961 has 149 cosponsors.

Below are all U.S. Representatives for the States of Colorado, Connecticut and Florida and DC at Large. Those who have cosponsored are marked with a big YES.

If they have not cosponsored, you know what to do. Contact them and ask that they cosponsor H.R. 961 at their earliest opportunity.

For those new to the process, here’s a link that will take you through it right here on Tuesday’s Horse.

  1. Please vote YES on H.R. 961 no horse ever needs to be slaughtered to death and to suffer being cut open whole alive. They are our Icons and have built this country along with being great healers to those with PTSD like our vets. Do not allow this to happen
