Protect American Horses From Being Slaughtered for Their Meat!
Every single year, tens of thousands of horses – from ponies, to race horses, to working animals like plow horses – are slaughtered when they are deemed no longer “useful.” Many of those horses are healthy enough to live out their remaining days comfortably, but are sent to be tragically killed for their meat instead.
Technically, due to a temporary USDA regulation, horses cannot be slaughtered for human consumption in the U.S. But that doesn’t stop it from happening. In fact, tens of thousands of horses get exported to places like Mexico and Canada where it is perfectly legal. Sign the petition now to tell our legislators: it is time to act on behalf of these beloved creatures!
