Help pass the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act to end the slaughter of American horses – email your congressmen now to help protect our wildlife. Federal legislation to ban the cruel transport of horses bound for slaughter plants outside of the US is needed NOW! If the SAFE Act isn't passed, over 170,000 horses a year will be inhumanely transported outside of US borders for up to 2 days at a time without water, food or rest, only to be led to an excessively traumatic death in international slaughter plants. More than 80% of the public, the Humane Society of the US (HSUS), and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) are opposed to horse slaughter and support this bill. Your voice is needed now and could mean the difference between life and horrible death for more than 170,000 U.S. horses -- both wild and domestic -- each year. Email your congressmen here
