Dear Friends,

Following passage in the House of Representatives, the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act is pending in the Senate.  As you know, the measure would ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption and the domestic and international transport of live horses or horseflesh for the same purpose.

Efforts from concerned constituents like us have made all the difference in this fight please continue to contact your Senators.

We hope the bill will be voted on by the Senate when Congress reconvenes on
December 5th, but there will be limited time available and only issues seen as essential are expected to be addressed.  We need to be sure Congress recognizes that this legislation is critical, as approximately 2,000 horses are being hauled to slaughter and brutally killed with every week this bill awaits action in the Senate.

Please contact both of your Senators today, urging their co-sponsorship of S. 1915, the Senate companion bill to H.R. 503, and requesting a vote on the legislation 
when they return on  December 5th, which is their last chance to vote.


Willie Nelson
