STOP THE SLAUGHTER OF AMERICAN EQUINES, WILD AND DOMESTIC
The Carter-Fitzpatrick amendment, which will ban the transport of American slaughter-bound equines across state lines and over the borders for butchering, was offered to the INVEST Act, H.R.3684. On July 30, 2021, it passed the U.S. House by a voice vote and is now headed to the U.S. Senate!
Help put an end to the barbaric practice of horse slaughter once and for all. Contact your two U.S. Senators and urge them to support the measure contained within the INVEST Act that will ban the transport of American equines for slaughter.
It's urgent that you call your two U.S. Senators! Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be connected to their offices.
Script for calling your U.S. Senator's office. Leave a voice mail if no one is available to take your call.
As a voting constituent, I'm calling to urge (your Senator's name) to support the provision within the INVEST Act that will prohibit the transport of slaughter-bound equines across state lines and over U.S. borders.
The humane treatment of horses is an important issue to me, and protecting them from being slaughtered for human consumption is paramount. In addition to the barbaric process the horses endure while being killed and butchered, the road to the slaughterhouse is also rife with cruelty and suffering. After being purchased by kill buyers, the horses are trucked long distances to Mexico or Canada without food, water or rest. Many are injured or die in transit.
I urge (your U.S. Senator's name) to support the effort to protect our nation's equines from being live-exported to slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A VOICE FOR THE HORSES. TOGETHER, WE WILL STOP THE SLAUGHTER!
