Protect Our Nation's Horses and Keep the Food Supply Safe

Protect Our Nation's Horses and Keep the Food Supply Safe

Crucial new legislation, titled the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541), was recently introduced in Congress that will protect consumers from toxic horsemeat and end the cruel slaughter of America's horses as well as their export for slaughter abroad.

Horse slaughter is fraught with terror, pain, and suffering. In the past, plants that existed in the U.S. had a history of polluting local water supplies, lowering property values, and were a drain on local economies. Horses are not raised for food and over the course of their lives are given a wide variety of drugs and veterinary treatments that make their meat unfit for human consumption.

TAKE ACTION
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators to urge co-sponsorship of H.R. 1094/S. 541, the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act. Look up your legislator's phone number here. You can say: "I would like you to please co-sponsor and support H.R. 1094/S. 541, the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act to protect our nation's horses and keep the food supply safe for consumers."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to automatically send a follow-up message to your members of Congress. Legislators receive a lot of email, so be sure to edit your message so it stands out.

Your Message

Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I urge you to please co-sponsor and support the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, H.R. 1094/S. 541. Not only am I staunchly against the cruel slaughter of American horses, I am concerned that if our country exports are a tainted and unsafe product for human consumption, the reputation of the entire U.S. food industry is at risk.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
