The fate of our equines, wild and domestic, are being voted on this week, possibly today. We need to be sure the budget does not include language that allows for horse slaughter, or mass euthanization of our wild horses. This is the most critical time for U.S. horses.
Please take a moment to make the calls below:
1. Call the Leadership of the House and Senate. See numbers below. Simply deliver this message (or however your group would specifically like to word it):
"I'm calling to urge Senator/Representative _____ to keep horse slaughter out of 2018 spending legislation by maintaining the Senate versions of Agriculture and Interior Appropriations bills. Please stand with the 80% of Americans who oppose horse slaughter and want our wild horses and burros protected and humanely managed, not killed or slaughtered."
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy: (202) 225-2915
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi: (202) 225-4965
2. Contact your own Representatives and Senators now by either email or fax this week.
Find your representatives here: http://govtrack.us and/or you can use the free Fax options:
and tell them ---
"Tell them that you stand with the 80% of Americans who oppose killing wild horses and burros, and want them protected and humanely managed on our public lands. You expect their vote will be that No federal funds will be used to kill healthy wild horses and burros or send them to slaughter; or sales without limitation, or experimental spaying in the field or in holding.
