2 Calls to Action to stop horse slaughter!

These are forwards...the first is regarding the lawsuit in Illinois.
Dear Friends,

As we anticipated, Judge Capala has denied the HSUS petition to intervene as a defendant. He has agreed to accept an amicus brief from them (Cavel did not object to that, so he isn't going out on any limbs there).

The Horse Council of Illinois has asked to file an amicus brief on the part of the plaintiffs (Cavel), indicating that the HSUS represents an emotional position and not a rational one.

If you disagree with this position, visit their gateway page. You will find links to their sponsors there. I have followed them to get to the contact links for all four. You can email their sponsors and tell them that you do not intend to use their products as long as they support the HCI.

National sponsors:

Purina feeds

John Deere
(309) 765-8000.

Regional sponsors:

Midway Trailer Sales

Morton Buildings


The following one is because the Illinois lawsuit, as well as the transportation of horses to Canada and Mexico for slaughter, again show we NEED the federal bill passed ASAP!


Dear Friends,

As you all know, our Senators are dragging their feet to stand up for our horses this year.

In 2006, we had 34 co-sponsors for the AHSPA (, today we have 27. Why? Some who co-sponsored last year are not on our list, two of them are Presidential candidates.

It's time to focus on those who signed up last year, or who have a lot to lose by not signing on. Let's let them know how we feel and get this done, before we are looking at 2008 and so many more horses are barbarically murdered.

To begin, I am asking everyone to contact these four Senators. Please, be polite, but be strong in your request. It is time for this law to be passed and the American people are heard.

Please call, fax and forward this to everyone you know. Educate as many people as you can. So many still don't know about this atrocity!

These are the four Senators that we need to get on board at this time:

The Honorable Charles Schumer (co-sponsored in 2006)
United States Senate
313 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510-3201
DC Phone: 202-224-6542

476 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510-3203

DC Phone: 202-224-2854
DC Fax: 202-228-4260
Email Address:

It is time for these Senators to join us and state emphatically that they are against horse slaughter. Let's let them know how we feel! If you would like to see who has co-sponsored so far in 2007, you can see here:

Thank you for helping our horses!
