Horse Slaughter Prevention Act

PETITION: Pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act to ban the barbaric butchering of American horses.

TARGET: US House of Representatives

Thousands of American horses continue to be slaughtered and their meat sold to foreign countries. These horses are shipped long distances in hot, cramped trailers without food or rest and often times live in very inhumane conditions. The majority of these horses are young and able bodied and could lead very productive lives. This bill will also prevent the possibility of slaughterhouses operating domestically.

Please sign and share this petition asking the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act.

We the undersigned urge you to vote for and pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. Each year tens of thousands of American horses are sold at livestock auctions where they are ultimately sold to middlemen who go on to sell them to slaughterhouses outside of the U.S border in Mexico and Canada. They spend long hours in cramped conditions, deprived of food, water and rest until they are across the border where they are pushed through the slaughterhouse and their meat sold to other foreign countries. We also oppose the possibility of slaughterhouses operating domestically.

There is a more humane way of keeping the horse population under control than killing them and selling their meat to other countries.

They were here first. We must be more humane or we’ll everything to the point of our own extinction.

Most people don't understand how much the horse racing industry plays into the slaughtering of horses. My horse is a nurse mare foal, he would have been slaughtered because he was a product of the racing industry. Do some research about nurse mares and nurse mare foals to better understand it. I am so thankful to have my horse and to have been able to save him.
