  • 2. American horses are TRANSPORTED to slaughter in other Countries
  • 3. HR503 will STOP the TRANSPORT to slaughter in other Countries
  • 4. HR503 has to be PASSED to STOP the TRANSPORT to slaughter in other Countries
  • 5. HR503 cannot be passed until it is voted on.
  • 6. HR503 cannot be voted on until the SUBCOMMITTEE gets it OUT OF THE COMMITTEE TO THE FLOOR.
  • 7. If HR 503 DIES in the COMMITTEE this year, MILLIONS more Horses will Die due to Torture in Slaughter Houses.

AMERICAN HORSES ARE BEING TORTURED IN SLAUGHTER HOUSES IN CANADA AND MEXICO.  IT WILL NEVER STOP.  IT WILL NOT STOP UNTIL H.R.503 IS PASSED IN CONGRESS…..16 PEOPLE HOLD THE POWER TO MAKE IT STOP..WILL YOU CALL THEM PLEASE…IF THIS BILL IS NOT PASSED BY NOVEMBER 4, HORSES WILL BE TRANSPORTED ACROSS OUR BORDERS TO DIE AGONIZING DEATHS – SHOT IN THEIR EYES, STABBED IN THE SPINE, IT WILL CONTINUE – THROUGHOUT ALL ETERNITY IF H.R. 503 IS NOT PASSED…….CALL OR FAX THESE 16 FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES NOW…..ASK THEM TO PLEASE VOTE YES ON H.R.503 IMMEDIATELY.

i live to be wild
i live to roam free
in the space that you

horse country
my herds wants to stay here
i want to nurture my foals
there is so much to say here
in spite of your goals
we horses are what god has made
to harm us for dollars
an immoral trade

      Yes. Horse slaughter is illegal in the United States…..TRANSPORTING Horses From the United States to Canada and Mexico is LEGAL…If HR503 is not passed, millions of horses will continue to be TRANSPORTED From the United States to Canada and Mexico to Slaughter Houses in those countries.

      Penny, horse slaughter for human consumption is currently illegal; those murdered for rendered materials is still legal.

    I’m already vegan…don’t need to watch the videos…I know, all too well, and grieve every day for each and every animal so criminally abused and killed by “humans.” Do not partake in the slaughter industry, people, go vegan. HR503 will pass…it must. Every slaughterhouse should be destroyed, burnt to the ground, and the earth salted there.

    I am busy calling them all right now, and am happy to have learned that my Ny guy is a co-sponser of HR 503!!! – JERROLD NADLER, NEW YORK:
    PHONE (202)-225-5635

    I think it important to let these guys know that it is important to pass HR 503 THIS YEAR as some of the states are making plans to re-open horse slaughter plants soon!

    Thanks so much for taking up this battle! Maybe this year we can do it: Get HR 503 passed!

    I am so happy to see someone posted this. Most people do not know that our horses are being slaughtered in Mexico where there are huge plants as they call them with lots of cattle too for food and Canada. Imagine the US would allow, the USDA to ship our adored horses born free to be killed in a horrific and scary way. After all, does it boil down to money the US is getting from these areas. Why the heck would we ship any horses to Mexico if we have an illegal people situation anyway. That doesn’t make sense. STOP SHIPPING HORSES FOR MEAT. Stop shipping to Mexico say no more illegals. Time to take a stand and leave the horses be.

    i think that it is about time that everyone not just us horse lovers sees how wrong and horrific this is animals have feeling and we should not be shipping them for meat so that we can get the money. i mean think of the stupid reasons why people are doing this; because they are to old, i dont have room for them, they are costing me to much money, they are in pain…. ect…. well think about theses horses as humans if we get old do we put you in a slaughter house, if you live on the streets we dont bring you to the slaughter house we atchually have homeless shelters and there are ‘homeless shelters’ for horses. horses are a nessesity to everyones lives weather they no it or not!

    I called everyone on the list. Some said they were co-sponsors, but i just let them know I am asking that they vote YES on 503 to protect Horses. When they ask what State i am from, i just tell them and also tell them I believe this is a National issue & don’t agree with how they are being tortured. They usually accept that & agree to pass along. Many of those answering their phones are familiar with this issue & agree.

    We cannot stomic to watch this video’s any longer and are working to get our people in place and hit all these plants where our horses are being slaughtered for profit. Since no one else seems to give a rates ass about stepping up and taking a stand it will be up to us to make the differents. Once we get to each plant we are going to take them out by dirupting there operation by killing all power leading to the plant, sucuring the staff and holding them there until authorities arrive to make the arrest, then loading up all the horses that have not yet been killed and take them with us to a place where they will be cared for. so if any of you still want to help stop talking about it get your people together and show these bastards you are not going to allow this to continue, make a stand and be the voice for these animals.

    Then maybe, MAYBE, we could get this bill out of committee and get it voted on. This ONE MAN has been the biggest obstacle to passing the slaughter bill for almost 10 years now. This ONE MAN consistently stands in the way of democracy by blocking this bill from ever leaving committee to be voted on.
