About H. R. 3355 / S. 2732

To amend the Horse Protection Act to prohibit the shipping, transporting, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donation of horses and other equines to be slaughtered for human consumption, and for other purposes.

See Congress.gov »

We do not have a lot of time left to push this bill through, but it is possible if we all get busy. Right now, we have a President who will sign it into law.


While support for this legislation is high — both in Congress and among the people — it is not translating into action by our elected officials.

They need to know how important banning horse slaughter is to us, that they cosponsor these bills, demand action before the relevant committees, and move this legislation onto the House and Senate floors for a vote now. We can get this done. Contact them at the links below.
