RISE UP and TAKE ACTION FOR OUR AMERICAN HORSES!


Dear Friends,

Last week we sent you a statement that was issued to Americans Against Horse Slaughter by Chairman John Conyers Jr. stating that the transportation and slaughter of horses for human consumption is cruel and inhumane, and that he intends to continue his efforts to stop this terrible practice.

As you can see from the alert below, Chairman John Conyers Jr. is keeping his promise. Let's continue to support his efforts and Rise Up for our Americans Horses!

Watch for more information from us in the very near future on how you can provide some additional help for the cause.

Please see the alert below courtesy of Animal Law Coalition.
A hearing has been set on Feb. 2, 2010 before a Congressional subcommittee on H.R. 503, the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, a bill that would stop the export of American horses to foreign slaughter houses for human consumption and basically end the commercial trade and transport of American horses for slaughter for human consumption. Go here for more information and how you can take action to help pass this bill:
