News & Alerts

The deadline for Congress to finalize a government spending bill is December 7 – and some lawmakers are now trying to sneak changes into the bill that would remove protections for wild horses and burros from slaughter.

We have faced this threat numerous times in the past two years. At every critical moment, we have succeeded, but ONLY because this movement has mobilized. Don’t stop now.

Tell your Representatives to protect wild horses and burros from slaughter and cruel and untested sterilization methods:

Our opponents on both the Agriculture and Interior committees could make dangerous changes that could lead to horse slaughter for human consumption or cruel, untested sterilization experiments on mares.

The Hill calls these disputes “small-ball skirmishes” but we know they could be life or death for thousands of majestic creatures.

We need your help NOW to maintain protections for wild horses. Please contact your Representatives now!
