NEW CONGRESS TO INTRODUCE NEW SAFE ACT TO BAN HORSE SLAUGHTER IN 2017

Aug. 6, 2017

The NEW Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, which would prevent the horse slaughter industry from establishing operations in the United States and prohibit the export of American horses for slaughter abroad, was introduced in the Senate on Aug. 2, 2017. These House’s version of the bill was introduced earlier this year.

The bill already has bipartisan support; however, it’s vital that past co-sponsors sign on again. Also new members of the House and Senate need to be educated about the issue of horse slaughter and the importance of finally banning horse slaughter once and for all.

The fight to ban horse slaughter through a federal bill is now a decade old and each year that passes without a ban sees more than 100,000 American horses shipped over our borders to be butchered for human consumption.

Advocates are asking that you email your U.S. Representatives and Senators, urging them to cosponsor and support the SAFE Act.
