Legislation to Stop Horse Slaughter

The House of Representatives version of the S.A.F.E. Act (H.R. 3355) would ban horse slaughter and the export of American horses for slaughter. It now has seven additional new co-sponsors as its support grows.

The total number of co-sponsors is at 90 thanks to the addition of representatives Carolyn B. Maloney, Carolyn Bourdeaux, Abigail Spanberger, Tom Suozzi, Katie Porter, Mark Pocan and Joe Neguse.

The Senate version of the S.A.F.E. Act (Save America’s Forgotten Equines) was just reintroduced and has been assigned the bill number S. 2732.

What You Can Do Now:

Call your U.S. representative and two senators at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to support a ban on horse slaughter.

You can find their email and mailing addresses via www.house.gov and www.senate.gov if you want to write to them as well.

Cruelty and abuse begin long before a horse gets to the kill box at a slaughter plant. America’s horses are not raised or regulated as a food animal. They are given products containing substances banned for use in food animals throughout their lives making them unfit for consumption. There are numerous humane alternatives to slaughter. Horse slaughter must be banned once and for all through federal legislation!
