U.S. horse slaughter plants are in the very early stages of planning, proponent says

Help the horses by making horse slaughter illegal… FOREVER!

The last horse slaughter plants in the U.S. shut down in 2007. But now Congress has cleared the way for horse slaughter plants to open again.

Message From The Humane Society of the United States *Last Hope for Horses*

The HSUS is strongly encouraging folks to contact their legislators and urge them to cosponsor the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (S. 1176/H.R. 2966) Let them know that you don't want taxpayers footing the bill for horse slaughter!

Visit this website to make a brief, polite phone call to your two U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative, urging co-sponsorship of the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act.

The Myths and Truth About Horse Slaughter

Myth - Horses that are sold for slaughter are crippled, old and un-usable
Truth - Healthy horses of ALL ages are sent to slaughter

Myth - There are too many "unwanted" horses in the US
Truth - Horses that need homes are not all "unwanted" - this term has been fabricated by the pro-slaughter industry to justify continuing equine slaughter
Truth - Over breeding is the main cause of too many horses on the market and most breeding associations are pro- slaughter

Myth - Slaughtering horses in the U.S. is more humane than in Mexico
Truth - Whether the slaughter is done with a captive bolt or a knife, both processes are inhumane

Myth - Killer Buyers are doing a favor by buying horses and selling them for slaughter
Truth - Slaughter is not humane euthanasia - killer buyers are profiting substantially by selling horses to the slaughterhouses

Myth - People can't afford to euthanize horses
Truth - It costs approximately the same as euthanizing a cat or dog

Myth - Horse meat is healthy and natural
Truth - Horses are inoculated, given toxic chemicals that indicate on the packaging "not fit for use on animals used for human consumption"
