Update on horse slaughter!

The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, H.R. 113, has been reintroduced in the new Congress.

The SAFE Act will prohibit the slaughter of our horses for human consumption in the U.S. and their export for slaughter.

The bill protects consumers from exposure to toxic horsemeat which was one of the primary arguments in our lawsuits at the federal and state level to ban horse slaughter.

Thanks go to the following Representatives for reintroducing this bill to end a horrific cruelty to America’s horses:

  • Vern Buchanan (R-FL)
  • Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)
  • Ed Royce (R-CA)
  • Michele Lujan Grisham (D-NM).

Please contact your federal Representatives to co-sponsor H.R. 113 now! You can find your rep through www.house.gov.
