The Petition Link is to the White House’s We The People, where folks can create a petition.  If that petition reaches 5000 signatures within 30 days, the White House Staff  WILL read it and pass the petition up the ladder. HUGE…RIGHT?  Well, this Petition was written by  LAURA ALLEN, the Founder and Executive Director of ANIMAL LAW COALITION.    We have until October 23 to reach our goal of 5000.  The name of the petition is “Support a Ban on Horse Slaughter”.

Please note that this is only for friends who live in the USA. You will need to create an account, but the process is very quick and once you are signed up, you will be able to sign any other We The People petitions.

Please click  HERE  to sign the petition.

We Petition the Obama Administration to:

Support a Ban on Horse Slaughter

President Obama should support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011, S.B. 1176/H.R. 2966, to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption:

1) Horses are revered for their contributions to the building of this country, their companionship and special bond with people;

(2) Horses are not raised for the purpose of being slaughtered for human consumption, and, indeed, American horses are not raised, fed and medicated within the FDA guidelines established for food animals, making them potentially unfit and unsafe for human consumption;

(3) Horse slaughter is animal cruelty, not humane euthanasia; it means environmental and economic devastation for communities; and

(4) Banning slaughter would reduce the number of horses in need and improve horse welfare.

    There are no horse slaughterhouses in the USA any more. The issue is that now American horses are being transported to Canada and Mexico for slaughter. We need to ban the transport of horses for slaughter. There had been a bill before congress, but I don’t know the status.
