Speak Out Against Horse Slaughter

Help The Humane Society of the United States Speak Out Against Horse Slaughter

The threat of horse slaughter plants opening on U.S. soil is looming, and congressional action is urgently needed to pass the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541). This vital legislation will protect consumers from toxic horsemeat and prevent the cruel slaughter of America’s horses on U.S. soil as well as their export for slaughter abroad.

In the past, plants that existed in the U.S. had a history of polluting local water supplies, lowering property values, and were a drain on local economies. American horses are not raised for food and over the course of their lives are given a wide variety of drugs and veterinary treatments that make their meat unfit for human consumption. Horse slaughter is fraught with terror, pain, and suffering and now that suffering might be taking place again on U.S. soil.
