This is an urgent blog to inform everyone that while our Congressmen
and Senators are out on break until after Labor Day, we need to call
them at their main branch and ask them to co-sponsor bill H.R.6598.
This is so important to do because once they get back from vacation
(their break) they are going to start having their meetings and voting
on bills that come to the floor of Congress and vote on them. So we
need to act fast and call them while we know they are in their home
town and ask them to co-sponsor this bill. This current bill is the
most recent bill in Committee right now, and with added pressure from
all of us, it will be put to a vote after Labor Day. So please read
the following:

Please make a brief, polite phone call to your Representative to ask them to co-sponsor the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act.

When you call, you will speak to a staff member who can pass your message along to your legislator. Please be polite and professional, and leave your name and address so it is clear that you are a constituent. You can say:

"Hello, my name is [your name] and I live in [your town]. As a constituent, I'm calling to urge Representative [Your Congressman Name] to co-sponsor H.R. 6598, the Conyers-Burton Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, a new bill to prevent horses from being cruelly slaughtered for human consumption. Thank you."

After making your call, please send a follow-up email to your Representative in support of protecting horses from slaughter. And don't forget to tell your friends and family and inform them on how they can take action, too.

Thank you so much for all your support and for getting involved in the fight to end horse slaughter. Those little velvet nosed animals will thank you unconditionally. I truly hope you take 5 minutes out of your day to do this. It takes such little time, but it means the world to the horses who are being brutally killed and abused in these slaughter houses. Thanks again!

Are you doing all you can to make this world a better place to live in?
