Call to Action: America’s Wild Horses & Burros – No Slaughter, NO WAY!

“Many compliments to the advocates who compiled the phone contact information for members of the House Appropriations Committee that meets this Tuesday morning, (TOMORROW), when the fate of America’s wild horses and burros will again be joined. Also included are the Senate members who’ll play a key role in deciding whether the provision allowing the reintroduction of US horse slaughterhouses will be defeated. Calls are the key, immediate and polite. “No slaughter, NO WAY!” is the goal.
After calling, Tweet, Facebook, Email…do everything you can to get the message out but please remain focused and polite, it is a simple message, “No Slaughter, NO WAY”! Let’s get after it!!” ~ R.T.

Now it appears the European Union (EU) and Canada may stop horse slaughter before Congress.
