Call to Action — H.R. 961
Calling all residents of Georgia and Hawaii. Especially you Georgians! Let’s get busy.
Take action on behalf of horses and help get the cosponsors required to blast H.R. 961, The SAFE Act of 2019, out of Committee and onto the House Floor for debate and vote.
When H.R. 961 becomes law it will totally abolish the practice of slaughtering American 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. Please help get and keep American horses out of the slaughterhouse.
Magic Number — 290
Here’s how we do it.
We need a minimum of 290 to take advantage of the Consensus Calendar Rule which will move the Bill onto the House Floor for debate and vote.
As of this writing, the SAFE Act of 2019 has 151 cosponsors.
Below are all U.S. Representatives for the States of Georgia and Hawaii. Those who have cosponsored H.R. 961 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 in simple, easy-to-follow steps right here on Tuesday’s Horse.

Horse meat is not safe for human consumption. It has been found mixed in other meats at our grocery stores. And in mlm our fast food restaurants. The slaughterhouse is not clean and the slaughter is very inhumane. The horses in our country are not raised as slaughter animals . Our bbn horses are companion animals. Since this slaughterhouse for horses has been started there have been a great number of very well cared for private owner horses stolen off their own property. And not recovered. The slaughter house has a contract with the kill buyer for a number of horses brought in for their load. If he is missing some he needs to secure his load. There have been quite a few broken hearts of many people never recovering their horses including children. We are asking for your cooperation to cosponsor for H.R. 961. Thank you respectfully.
