HELP END HORSE SLAUGHTER sign now

The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, would prohibit the transport, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donation of any horse to be slaughtered for human consumption.

Americans do not eat horse meat. However, thousands of horses are slaughtered every year to satisfy a market for horsemeat overseas. Horses are slaughtered in the United States to be served on dinner plates in countries like France, Belgium, and Japan.

Additionally, the transport of horses to slaughter houses is often extremely inhumane. Many horses are injured even before reaching the slaughter plant due to overcrowded conditions during transport. Some are shipped for more than 24 hours at a time without food, water, or rest. In addition, the methods used to slaughter these horses once they arrive at the plant can be exceptionally inhumane. The horses are often forced to endure repeated stuns or blows and often times remain conscious during their slaughter.
S. 1915 would put an end to this cruel and inhumane practice by permanently prohibiting horse slaughter for human consumption in the U.S.
