It's time to let Governor Sandoval know that his heartless wild horse policy is unacceptable and, if continued, will negatively impact the state's number one industry: tourism.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Yesterday, an Associated Press report revealed that Nevada state officials -- including Governor Brian Sandoval (pictured at left) -- have discussed slaughtering wild horses and establishing a horse slaughter plant in Nevada.
Next Wednesday, 41 wild horses who were captured by the state, from the Virginia Range near Reno, will be put up for bid at a livestock auction frequented by kill buyers. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of AWHPC supporters, local advocates and rescue groups now have the funds necessary to purchase these horses and save them from slaughter. Stay tuned next week for a full report on the extraordinary rescue of these beautiful wild horses.
Meanwhile, it is time to hold Governor Sandoval accountable for his state's heartless wild horse policy. Take action below to tell the Governor to stop capturing and selling his state's wild horses at livestock auctions and start working with local rescue groups to protect these historic animals and save tax dollars.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
