Contact your U.S. Representative Today to Support HR 503 (The Conyers-Burton Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act of 2009) to prohibit the slaughter of American horses for human consumption as well as their export for the same purpose.

Find your Federal Representative here.


With more than 100,000 American horses brutally slaughtered last year there is an urgent need to pass federal legislation to shut down this trade. Thankfully, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), Representative Dan Burton (R-IN) and many of their colleagues have taken up the reins and reintroduced H.R. 503, the Conyers-Burton "Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act of 2009". The legislation recognizes horse slaughter for what it truly is - animal cruelty - and will end the practice for good. Please take a moment to contact your U.S. Representative and ask for his/her support of this sound legislation.

Thank you!
