Important reminder: Calls needed, full House votes tomorrow

IMPORTANT! Your calls are needed NOW! Please CALL the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121; ask to be connected to your state Representative's office. Tell them not to fund horse slaughter. Calls must be made today!

The full House of Representatives will vote on the AG Appropriations bill tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26. A new amendment could be offered to remove the Committee-approved language that was just added back in last week 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.

You can also find the direct contact information for your state representative here>>  http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Right now foreign investors are pushing to reopen horse slaughter plants in the U.S. and they are using every type of trickery available to mislead the public and gain support for their objective.

Your state representatives need to hear from YOU, their constituents, to help insure that they stand strong representing your voice, your position against horse slaughter.

See why local communities across the country are up in arms trying to stop the economic and environmental devastation caused by horse slaughter -- watch the Humanitarian trailer, "IMPACT", from the landmark film, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED... http://youtu.be/xjQ59Zr1A70
