Save America's Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act, H.R.3355
There are no horse slaughter facilities currently operating within the USA. However, every year over 30,000 American horses, donkeys and mules are live-exported to Canada and Mexico to be killed and butchered for human consumption.
If passed into federal law, the Save America’s Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act, H.R.3355, will make it illegal to slaughter American equines for human consumption on U.S. soil or abroad. The measure would amend the Horse Protection Act, which was passed by Congress in 1970.
Help put an end to equine slaughter once and for all! Contact your U.S. Representative and urge them to cosponsor the SAFE Act, H.R.3355.
