Did You Know American Horses Are Slaughtered Every Single Day? Join Our Twitter Chat to Learn More!

Each year approximately 150,000 American horses are trucked to Mexico and Canada to be slaughtered for human consumption. Horse slaughter is a cruel, unnecessary, predatory industry that has no domestic market. Even though 80 percent of voters oppose horse slaughter, many people don’t know that American horses are still going to slaughter every single day.

Want to learn more? Join us for an #ASPCAchat on horse slaughter on May 27 from 1:00 to 2:00 P.M. ET. The chat will take place simultaneously on both Twitter and Facebook, and two ASPCA experts will be available to answer all of your questions. Tune in and find out where horse slaughter takes place, why it must be stopped and how you can make a difference for our nation’s horses.

Our #ASPCAchat will feature:

Carolyn Schnurr, ASPCA Senior Manager, Federal Legislation
Nancy Perry, ASPCA Senior Vice President, Government Relations
