Mark your calendars for January 22, 2008, the National Call-In Day for
The doors on the last remaining U.S.-based horse slaughter plants have
been shuttered. Now, Congress must pass the American Horse Slaughter
Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311) to end the transport to slaughter of
American horses to Mexico and Canada. Even when plants were operating
within the U.S., several thousand horses were exported to Mexico and
Canada annually. Though the total number of American horses killed has
dropped, all of them are now enduring terribly long trips over the
border that end in a grisly form of slaughter. We have said all along
that we must pass federal legislation to stop horse slaughter and the
need has never been more urgent.
On January 22, please call your two U.S. senators and U.S.
representative and express your support to end horse slaughter
Call the Capital Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your 2
Senator's and 2 US Representatives' offices.
Please tell your friends and family how they can help end horse
slaughter, too. Email and handout the National Call-In Day for Horses
flier to everyone you know!
Watch your email on the morning of January 22 for special Call-In Day
instructions. Your emails and calls will not only make a difference,
they will help make history. Help us end horse slaughter forever.
