Take action here to keep the slaughterhouse doors closed to horses!

Use this form to send an email to the members of the committees currently considering passage of the Safeguard American Food Exports Act. Send a letter to respectfully demand a full hearing on the bill pending in each chamber.

This bill is an excellent safeguard to protect people from the dangers of eating horsemeat, and a way to assure that the law protects horses. Let’s keep our laws strong in protecting horses from cruel and inhumane practices.

Petition Text

I am writing today in support of the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541). Horse slaughter for human consumption has been outlawed in the United States for many years, and the SAFE Act aims to protect the food supply in the United States from the dangers that consumption of horse meat poses. Racehorses are often treated with drugs that would harm a human if consumed, according to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Consuming horse meat likely poses a serious threat to human health, and the public should be protected from these unsafe products. As a constituent, I am writing today to respectfully demand a full hearing on the bill pending in each chamber.

Please support the SAFE Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541) to protect human health and horses.

Sincerely,


too many dead animals already on people’s plates.
stop horse meat consumption now
before it is too late.
bad for horses, bad for humans, too.
keeping slaughterhouse doors closed
is the thing to do!
