We Need You
You can prevent U.S. horses from being slaughtered.
Please help us protect our horses from abuse and discourage over-breeding. In January 2017 the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (H.R. 113) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill would prevent the export of American horses for slaughter in other countries, and we need your help to get it passed!
Letters and phone calls have made huge differences in the past. Please reach out personally to your senators and representatives. Encourage them to support the SAFE Act (H.R. 113/S. 1706) – because horses have suffered long enough!
If you only have a few moments, we suggest using THIS FORM provided by the ASPCA. It sends a message to your officials on your behalf, automatically either asking them to cosponsor the bill, or thanking them if they already have.
Alternatively, the Animal Welfare Institute offers THIS FORM, which is similar but also shows your official’s position and allows you to easily include a personalized note.
Show your support by signing petitions to increase the impact of concerned animal welfare organizations.
