This blog is to give information to those who are serious about putting an end to horse slaughter. We need to move swiftly on this, and we can't just turn away. I know it's easier to say, "There are a lot of people out there who will make the calls, I don't need to do it." or "I don't have time." But if everyone had that same thought, horse slaughter would never come to an end. We are their voices, they are literally crying out to us to help them. Below is a memo from the organization "AMERICANS AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER", you can also find them on facebook. Please take a few minutes of your time to view the information below, and let your heart lead you into doing the right thing, and that is making the call to the Representative's in the House of Reps. Below you will find their phone numbers, and also a TOLL FREE number listed below. It will only take about 10 minutes of your time, but it would make a WORLD of difference to many horses who need us. :)
We need to act fast on this, as other states are tyring to open up Slaughter Facilities in their own states! Montana is just one of those states who past to have Horse Slaughter in their state. It's nice to know that Montana agreed to have a foreign company open up a plant to slaughter OUR horses and ship them to their own Foreign Countries for their own profit!! Let's do something at a Federal level that will prevent Montana and other U.S. states from doing the same thing!! Make the call, PLEASE!!

STRATEGY FOR WEEK OF 5/26/09
With the start of this week, we are implementing a variation to our strategy in an effort to gain swift support for H.R.503.
Below is our target list (past cosponsors of H.R.6598).
When calling each office, please ask for the LD (legislative Aide) who is handling H.R.503. When speaking with the LD, it is very important to gather feedback. Once you have feedback, please email that feedback to CJ (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are currently at 128 cosponsors. Great job everyone!!

800-828-0498 and ask for a legislator by name (or ask for their extension, the last 5 numbers of legislator's office phone) Please Note: We have started a separate thread titled “State Action Needed”. Several States have introduced their own legislation to allow horse slaughter. These states need our help to keep this from happening. Please pass the word!!
