From Across The Country



It’s a good day for horses! Please lend your voice and passion to the momentum of the final push to ban horse slaughter.

This is the final push for this Congressional Session to finally end horse slaughter!! If this bill fails, we will have to start all over in January 2009!

H.R. 6598 , the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, passed the House Judiciary Committee today (by a voice vote) and we have very little time to help move this bill through the legislative process. We URGENTLY need to build up the co-sponsorship list of H.R. 6598, which currently has 100 co-sponsors. Time is RUNNING OUT for Members to co-sponsor this bill ! Please click here to see if your U.S. Representative is a co-sponsor of H.R. 6598.

Please contact the Capitol Switchboard [202-224-3121] and ask to be transferred to your Representative. Unsure of who your Representative is? Please visit ( www.hsus.org/leglookup )

Please let your Representative know that you are a constituent and that you want your Representative to co-sponsor H.R. 6598, the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act. Call now!
Call until the bill is passed! Together, we can end the slaughter!

HSUS has asked Americans Against Horse Slaughter
to join them for a National Call In Day
on Monday, September 15th!!

Actress and Animal Advocate, Wendie Malick, recently created
a video urging support for The Conyers-Burto Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act (H.R. 6598) of 2008, which is currently being considered by the House Judiciary Committee and will hopefully be brought to the House floor for a vote in the coming days.Click here to see the video:

We need your help to gain support for this crucial bill,
which will finally prohibit the sale and transport of American horses to barbarically slaughtered for human consumption, including horses being shipped to Mexico and Canada.
