PETITIONING U.S. SENATORS TO COSPONSOR S1176, THE HORSE SLAUGHTER PREVENTION ACT OF 2011

    1. Valerie Azar
    2. Petition by

      Valerie Azar

      New York, NY

Institute a federal ban on the selling, purchasing, transporting and slaughtering an equine for the purposes of human consumption. 

NOTE: PERSONALLY CONTACTING YOUR SENATORS IN ADDITION TO SIGNING THIS PETITION IS CRITICAL! YOU CAN FIND THEIR CONTACT DETAIL AT WWW.SENATE.GOV - FAX OR EMAIL IS THE BEST WAY TO MAKE YOUR WILL KNOWN.

Please add your signature to this petition which will be delivered to the United States senators who have not yet cosponsored S1176 - the Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 - in the next few weeks. By doing this, you can add your voice to the nationwide lobbying effort in support of this critical legislation to federally ban the predatory horse slaughter industry ridden with cruelty and corruption. The 112th Congress convenes from January 2011 through January 2013. Louisiana Sen. Landrieu is the original sponsor of the bill and she has asked for nationwide citizen support in obtaining cosponsors for this vital and progressive legislation. The timing of it is a good opportunity and we must act now.

The first and most important step towards making Sen Landrieu's S1176 bill a law, is to obtain a large number of cosponsors and move the bill out of Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation where it is being held at the moment. This is the list of Commerce committee members: http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?p=CommitteeMembers

If you wish to contact your senators personally by fax or email, which is the most effective way of making your will known, please go to SENATE.GOV and search under Find Your Senators. It's easy.

PS: Please include your Name and ZIP CODE. Signatures are not being emailed to the senators at this time. The list for each state will be delivered to their offices in person by individual citizens representing each state!

Every person counts! THANK YOU!

      The slaughter of America's horses is cruel and inhumane and powered by greedy and evil individuals. I am saddened, shocked, and ashamed that our elected officials can even remotely consider allowing this to happen in the U.S.A!

      I do not support horse slaughter. Euthanasia should be available for these beautiful creatures of God.
