Alert! Calls are needed before full House vote this Tuesday June 26th

ALERT! The full House of Representatives will vote on the AG Appropriations bill Tuesday, June 26. An amendment may be offered to remove the Committee-approved language prohibiting the USDA from spending tax dollars to inspect horse slaughter facilities. Maintaining the currently included defunding language prohibits inspections of horse slaughter and is vital to protecting our horses. 

Pro-slaughter supporters will be putting the pressure on, but you can urge your Representatives to stand strong and oppose any effort to remove this funding ban.  See your Representative's past votes on the issue by clicking here>> http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2005/roll233.xml

Make a note and start calling 1st thing Friday, and call again on Monday!!  You can call the main Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your state Representative's office. You can also find the direct contact information for your state representative here>>  http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Efforts must remain vigilant to insure that America’s horses are adequately protected from insidious slaughter. Make your voice count by taking part and standing strong.
