Goal: 25,000 Progress: 1,482
Sponsored by: Humane Society of the United States

Each year, more than 100,000 American horses — working, racing and companion horses and even children's ponies — are horrifically slaughtered for human consumption. They are inhumanely transported long distances across our borders, in cramped trailers without food, water or rest. Then they are brutally slaughtered, and their meat is shipped overseas. Sadly, the vast majority of the horses that become victims of this predatory and deceptive industry are young, healthy animals who could have led productive lives with loving owners if they'd been given the chance.

Not only is slaughter immensely cruel, but U.S. horses are not raised for food, and over the course of their lives they are given a wide variety of drugs and veterinary treatments that make their meat unfit for human consumption.

Congress must act to completely end this horrific practice once and for all. The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, H.R. 113, would ban domestic horse slaughter and stop the export of horses for slaughter abroad. This vital legislation is needed to fully protect our American horses from ending up on foreign dinner plates. Horses have stood by us as our loyal companions throughout history — we owe it to them to protect them from abuse.

Urge your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor the Safeguard Food Exports Act!

Dear Legislator,

Please co-sponsor the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, H.R. 113, and do all that you can to push for the passage of this important bill. I am against the cruel slaughter of American horses, and I am concerned that horsemeat is tainted and unsafe for human consumption.

I urge you to completely ban domestic horse slaughter and end the export of horses abroad for slaughter.

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures

Jun 23, 2017 Joyce Onufer Horses are companion and work horses. If they can not work or ride then put them in a nice pasture and allow them the life of leisure they deserve. We love horses and slaughter is not only inhumane but dangerous for humans.
