Petition to Ban Horse Slaughter in the United States

Please sign this petition to end horse slaughter in the United States. Let our Government know how many people are against this atrocity.

As a result of spending bill H2112, slaughterhouses in the United States will be able to resume slaughtering horses for human consumption. We are not a nation that raises horses as food animals or one that consumes horse meat. Rather, horses are largely considered companion animals, more similar to dogs and cats than to animals raised for consumption. They should therefore be treated as such, and not subjected to mass slaughter.

Those who are for horse slaughter are trying to outnumber in signatures those who oppose horse slaughter. If we could ban horse slaughter for our American horses that are being sent by the thousands to Mexico, Canada & Japan for brutal slaughter, it would be a great day for animal lovers.  Canada is already considering a ban.  Let's join them !

Please take a minute to visit our web site and leave us a note with your reason to sign this Petition. That way we can thank you propperly and keep you updated on our progress. Thank you so much!
