OUTLAW INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT OF HORSES FOR HUMAN FOOD

Messages Sent So Far
Target: House of Representatives, John Boehner
Sponsored by: Animal Advocates
There are no facilities in the United States that process horses into food for people- however, tens of thousands of American horses are still trucked into Canada and Mexico every year to be processed into food.



Congress has been considering outlawing the international transport of horses for slaughter (for human consumption). Different bills that would achieve this have come and gone, and even though each one has had strong bipartisan support, none have ever made it to the finish line and become law.



Ask House Speaker John Boehner to allow H.R. 503, the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, to be voted on by the full House of Representatives.

Please stop the abuse and torture these poor animals suffer. This is so heartbreaking, we have animal abuse laws in our country, WHY do they not apply to these majestic, beautiful, trusting souls? Someone please be a voice for the horses!
