PREVENTION OF EQUINE CRUELTY ACT of 2008

Please take action and contact your Congressman

A new bill to ban the slaughter of horses in the US has been introduced into the House by the Judiciary Committee Chairman, John Conyers (D-MI) with Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act of 2008 (H.R. 6598) would end the slaughter of American horses for human consumption and prevent their export for slaughter in other countries.

Why a new bill? The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311) has been stalled in Congress and it is thought that this bill has a better chance of moving forward.

Please access the HSUS web site and send a letter to your Congressman.

PLEASE SPEAK OUT FOR THE HORSES!
