Please see the message below from our Americans Against Horse Slaughter MA State Coordinator and take action for our horses.
MA State residents are asked to note the Friday 2/4 deadline for gaining cosponsors for the bill. Cosponsors are absolutely necessary for the bill's survival.
We're appealing to Massachusetts residents to call their state Reps/Senators and to be persistent in their request for cosponsoring.
Thanks for forwarding.
For the horses!
