TOPIC: Protecting America’s Beloved Equines!

The Issue

Drawing on the central historical and cultural role horses have played in the United States, AWA are working to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption. Americans strongly oppose horse slaughter. AWA also working to ban the transport of all equines for the purposes of slaughter

Every year, tens of thousands of American horses go to slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico, where their flesh is packaged and sent to other foreign markets for consumption. These are healthy animals, by and large, and this is a predatory industry that takes advantage of animals never raised for the plate.

We must press the case.  The only reasonable pathway to securing a North American ban on the slaughter of horses from the U.S. is to pass legislation in Congress. One way to take definite steps in that direction is to forbid horse transport for slaughter from more states, as New York recently did in banning the movement of retired racehorses to Canada for slaughter.

AWA champion causes that alleviate the suffering of animals - Helping Animals Helps Us All.
