Update: U.S. Horse Slaughter on Hold…for Now

We recently told you that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved applications for horse slaughter inspections at Valley Meat Company LLC in Roswell, New Mexico, and Responsible Transportation in Sigourney, Iowa. The USDA is likely to also grant horse slaughter inspections at Rains Natural Meats plant in Gallatin, Missouri, in the coming days.

This week we learned that no horse slaughter plants will be granted inspections until at least July 29 as a result of a lawsuit filed against the USDA by several animal welfare organizations.

This lawsuit buys critical time for our horses. The Agriculture Appropriations bills, which contain language that would prevent horse slaughter in the U.S., are expected to pass in the coming months. We are seeing building momentum for the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, which would prevent the slaughter of horses in the U.S., end the current export of American horses for slaughter abroad and protect consumers from unknowingly ingesting toxic horse meat.

Please be a voice for horses TODAY: Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the SAFE Act to end this horrific threat to American horses and protect the public. This is a pivotal time for horses and they need your voice more than ever!

This is crazy we are saddened that anyone in the US would raise, sell, and slaughter horses for consumption.

I can not vote for anyone that supports such a horrific act.


I hope we do not eat horse meat. The way they are killed is so cruel!!!

Patrick Oliver

Cosponsor the SAFE Act!


meat is meat. and as long as its properly labeled i have no issues with horses being slaughtered for meat.


I am extremely against horse slaughter. I am trying to get people against it by starting petitions, making signs, and even making a website. If you would like to help in any way, please visit . Thank You!
