DEMAND Protection for Wild Horses and Burros
Action Alert from


American Wild Horse Campaign
October 2017


With the House blocking anti-horse slaughter amendments to 2018 spending legislation, the fate of America's wild horses and burros now rests with the Senate.

The Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, led by Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), chair, and ranking member Tom Udall (D-NM), will decide whether to maintain longstanding protections for wild horses and burros against mass killing and slaughter. The hearing on this bill is scheduled for the week of October 9.

That means we have just a few days to let the Senate know where Americans stand on the protection of our iconic wild horses and burros.

"I'm [Name] from [State] calling to ask Senator [Name] to ensure that 2018 spending legislation for the Department of Interior maintains the prohibition on the killing and slaughter of healthy wild horses and burros. Please ask Senator [Name] to stand with 80% of Americans who oppose killing wild horses and burros and want them protected and humanely managed on our public lands. Thank you."

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
