USA: Thank Your Federal Lawmakers for Standing Against Horse Slaughter!
Horse Slaughter Ban
ASPCA Position: Support
Action Needed: Use the form below to thank your U.S. representative and/or senator(s) for leading on horse welfare and to request continued leadership in 2016.
As the 114th Congress gears up for the second half of its two-year session, we must hit the ground running to advance protections for horses.
In December, the House and Senate passed an omnibus spending bill that renewed the ban on the use of tax dollars for horse slaughter for the current fiscal year, and support for the SAFE Act (H.R. 1942/S. 1214) continues to grow, with 184 cosponsors in the House and 30 cosponsors in the Senate.
It is critical that we build on the momentum of last year by thanking the members who took action to end horse slaughter and requesting their continued support for horses in 2016.
