JOIN US WHO LOVE HORSES
AND HELP THE HUMANE SOCIETY
We who adore horses must make this a part of every day.
They need us vitally ! The cruel way they are taken, sold, transported, and murdered hideously must be stopped by all who are caring people in the world!
They should not be used for food, period, but even so, their welfare and humane treatment is foremost.
We in America had voted by an overwhelming margin to keep the American Horse free from being taken for slaughter, and yet now the industries trying to take advantage of every loophole in laws is trying to take this out of Federal Government hands and place the decisions o n horses' fates in States' hands, where corruption is rampant.
Also, the plants in Canada in Mexico where these helpless beautiful horses are transported very cruelly must be stopped!
We need to step forward for the Horse, the way they have helped us to build our nations! The heroic symbol of all our nations, The Horse needs our help!
All of your phone calls, emails and letters have carried us this far. Keep up the pressure, and help us end the slaughter of American horses.
We all love Horses. And All Horses Are MerHorses.
We're born loving them - (all of us except the sociopathic, profit-driven, soulless ones who are not really human ) - we who love Horses need to continually stand up against.
Despite legislation, there have been dirty tricks, sneaky laws tacked o n to larger bills presented to the Congress, and the lobbyists work full time - so shall we!
Every day, determine to make at least o ne phone call and to send at least o ne email o n the Horses' behalf.
Visit this site - MerHorses - and the Humane Society and the ASPCA often and follow the links to send easy emails, sign petitions, and find your legislators' numbers and make regular calls to their offices affirming that you expect them to vote FOR our Horses - and internationally - all you in every country can do exactly that same thing, plus you can call American governmental agencies and tell them you will prefer visitng, bestowing your tourism money, o nly o n countries that are kind to Horses, plus call your own governments and tell them you want to save your Horses too!

How to save our Horses? -
Please make a short polite phone call to your two U.S. Senators today. You can reach your Senators by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, or click here to find their Capitol office phone numbers. Making a call is easy. All you need to say is:
"I am a constituent and I am calling to ask my Senator to please protect American horses from slaughter. The House has voted overwhelmingly to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (S. 1915) and now it is time for the Senate to act. Please do all that you can to support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act and move it to the Senate floor for an immediate vote. Thank you."
Horses are without a doubt the most exquisitely beautiful of all the animals o n our planet. Mythology tells us that the Sea God had give horses to the world as a gift. We can see the stamping, raging images of beautiful horses in the white surf of all the oceans, still, but no artwork, nothing can approach the awesome sight of a real horse, running freely o n an open plain.
Please visit this site and read about how you can help horses now, with just a moment of your time.
The Number of Abandoned Horses, Wandering and Starving, Has Increased :
Why aren't we focusing o n the three major problems here:
1. Creating laws to curtail horse breeding - making it illegal to profit from animal breeding of any kind is the o nly humane choice.
2. Finding a low-cost euthanasia. Why should we, the people, allow the drug companies to profit so much that this kind of suffering continues o nly because of the cost?
3. Creating laws and enforcing them about adopting horses and other animals - making those who abandon their animals criminals.
These new laws will fix the situation.
HORSES ARE IN DANGER! SAVE THEIR LIVES NOW!
PLEASE HELP THEM IMMEDIATELY!
CONTACT YOUR SENATORS URGE THEM TO STOP THE TRANSPORTATION AND SLAUGHTER OF OUR AMERICAN HORSES ! THEY ARE BEING MURDERED FOR JAPANESE, FRENCH AND BELGIAN COMPANIES. LET THEM KNOW OUR AMERICAN HORSES ARE NOT FOOD ANIMALS! THEY ARE PETS!
HELP TO SAVE THEM NOW! Go to the A.S.P.C.A. and help !

It's Outrageous that We, the Public, should be forced to find homes for the many thousands of Mare and Foals just dumped out by the manufacturers of the Gruesome Drug, Permarin, but now We Need to Find Homes for Hundreds of Foals Right Now! Can you Help?
Winter has come early in Alberta—and that’s bad news for the mares and foals living o n PMU ranches there. No longer needed for the production of hormone replacement therapy drugs, these equines need a place to go, and fast.

THE HORSE'S PRAYER
TO THEE, MY MASTER, I OFFER MY PRAYER. FEED ME, WATER AND CARE FOR ME, AND -- WHEN THE DAY'S WORK IS DONE -- PROVIDE ME WITH SHELTER, A CLEAN, DRY BED, AND A STALL WIDE ENOUGH FOR ME TO LIE DOWN IN COMFORT. ALWAYS BE KIND TO ME. TALK TO ME. YOUR VOICE OFTEN MEANS AS MUCH TO ME AS THE REINS. PET ME SOMETIMES, THAT I MAY SERVE YOU THE MORE GLADLY AND LEARN TO LOVE YOU. DO NOT JERK THE REINS AND DO NOT WHIP ME WHEN GOING UPHILL. NEVER STRIKE, BEAT, OR KICK ME WHEN I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WANT, BUT GIVE ME A CHANCE TO UNDERSTAND YOU. WATCH ME, AND IF I FAIL TO DO YOUR BIDDING, SEE IF SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MY HARNESS OR FEET.
DO NOT CHECK ME SO THAT I CANNOT HAVE THE FREE USE OF MY HEAD. IF YOU INSIST THAT I WEAR BLINDERS SO THAT I CANNOT SEE BEHIND ME AS IT WAS INTENDED I SHOULD, I PRAY YOU BE CAREFUL THAT THE BLINDERS STAND WELL OUT FROM MY EYES. DO NOT OVERLOAD ME OR HITCH ME WHERE WATER WILL DRIP o n ME. KEEP ME WELL SHOD. EXAMINE MY TEETH WHEN I DO NOT EAT; I MAY HAVE AN ULCERATED TOOTH AND THAT, YOU KNOW, IS VERY PAINFUL. DO NOT TIE MY HEAD IN AN UNNATURAL POSITION OR TAKE AWAY MY BEST DEFENSE AGAINST FLIES AND MOSQUITOES BY CUTTING OFF MY TAIL.
I CANNOT TELL YOU WHEN I AM THIRSTY; SO GIVE ME CLEAN, COOL WATER OFTEN. SAVE ME, BY ALL MEANS IN YOUR POWER, FROM THAT FATAL DISEASE THE GLANDER. I CANNOT TELL YOU IN WORDS WHEN I AM SICK; SO WATCH ME, THAT BY SIGNS YOU MAY KNOW MY CONDITION. GIVE ME ALL POSSIBLE SHELTER FROM THE HOT SUN AND PUT A BLANKET o n ME NOT WHEN I AM WORKING BUT WHEN I AM STANDING IN THE COLD. NEVER PUT A FROSTY BIT IN MY MOUTH; FIRST WARM IT BY HOLDING IT A MOMENT IN YOUR HANDS.
I PRAY TO CARRY YOU AND YOUR BURDENS WITHOUT A MURMUR AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR YOU LONG HOURS OF THE DAY OR NIGHT. WITHOUT THE POWER TO CHOOSE MY SHOES OR PATH, I SOMETIMES FALL o n THE HARD PAVEMENTS WHICH I HAVE OFTEN PRAYED MIGHT NOT BE OF WOOD BUT OF SUCH NATURE AS TO GIVE ME A SAFE AND SURE FOOTING. REMEMBER THAT I MUST BE READY AT ANY MOMENT TO LOSE MY LIFE IN YOUR SERVICE.
AND FINALLY, OH, MY MASTER, WHEN MY USEFUL STRENGTH IS GONE, DO NOT TURN ME OUT TO STARVE OR FREEZE OR SELL ME TO SOME CRUEL OWNER TO BE SLOWLY TORTURED AND STARVED TO DEATH, BUT DO THOU, MY MASTER, TAKE MY LIFE IN THE KINDEST WAY AND YOUR GOD WILL REWARD YOU HERE AND IN THE HEREAFTER. YOU WILL NOT CONSIDER ME IRREVERENT IF I ASK THIS IN THE NAME OF HIM WHO WAS BORN IN A STABLE.

STOP HORSE SLAUGHTER TODAY!!!
YOUR CALLS ARE NEEDED NOW TO THE SENATE TO MAKE SURE THE PERMANENT BAN o n HORSE SLAUGHTER IN AMERICA GOES THROUGH!
THIS IS FOR THE HISTORY OF THE LEGISLATION. PLEASE CONTINUE TO CALL YOUR SENATORS AND OTHER REPRESENTATIVES TO LET THEM KNOW YOU CARE THAT THIS BAN TO PROTECT HORSES GOES THROUGH THE SENATE,
May 23, 2006
The Society for Animal Protective Legislation (SAPL) has just learned that the House of Representatives will vote TODAY o n a new amendment to the House Agriculture Appropriations bill that would stop horse slaughter for the 2007 fiscal year.Building o n the House’s unanimous consent o n last week’s amendment to prohibit taxpayer funds from being used to sell or slaughter America's wild horses, this could be another victory for our horses.
With the help of constituents like you, SAPL last year convinced Congress to pass an amendment to the 2006 Agriculture Appropriations Bill that prohibited your tax dollars from being used to fund the federally mandated inspection of horses slaughtered for human consumption—thereby protecting America’s horses from slaughter.The measure was overwhelmingly approved in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and later signed into law.
However, the horse slaughter industry refused to give up, convincing the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to issue regulations that have enabled the facilities to fund their own inspections. This crooked plot will allow the slaughter of tens of thousands more horses for human consumption in 2006 – circumventing Congressional intent and flying in the face of the will of the American people. Fortunately, this year’s measure has been further refined to send a clear message to the USDA that horse slaughter must be stopped.

Now that all three U.S. based horse slaughter plants are closed, we have more to overcome - the remaining hurdles to spare American horses from foreign dinner plates -- we must first stop the individual States from taking control over the Federal Government in this most dear issue to American hearts. Then we must make sure any horse transportation is humane, and then we must stop the exportation of horses to slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.
Uncovering the cruelty of the Mexican horse slaughter industry and the utterly inhumane transportation methods used to ship horses to Mexican slaughterhouses.
Congress needs to act swiftly to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311) and end the export of American horses for human consumption!
Your voice for horses is critical. Here's what you can do:
Please check to see if your U.S. Representative is already a co-sponsor of H.R. 503 and if your two U.S. Senators are co-sponsors of S. 311. If they are, please thank them for their support. If not, please urge them to co-sponsor the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. You can reach your federal legislators by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, or click here to look up your your legislators and their Capitol office phone numbers.
Your call today will help highlight the new and urgent need for a ban now. Will you help us build support for a second massive National Call-In Day o n October 16? We need you to take part in a nationwide campaign to pass H.R. 503/S. 311 -- and it's simple. Join thousands of other concerned advocates and take part in a National Call-In Day o n Tuesday, October 16. Would you please spread the word about the Call-In Day? Just take this important flier and spread it throughout your community -- leave it at coffee shops, email it to all your contacts, and distribute it wherever you can.
Please go here and sign a petition to help the infant foals cruellty killed by the evil Premarin company and make sure no o ne you know uses Premarin!
