CALL TO ACTION FOR AUGUST
With Congress going on break through the month of August and legislators returning to their districts, we urge you to please take this time to meet with your US Representative (if he/she is not already a co-sponsor to H.R. 503) and your 2 US Senators to ask them to support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (AHSPA).
It is likely that most legislators will be in their home state district office's throughout the month of August, so this is the perfect time for us all to meet face to face with them to encourage their support for the horses! To find out who your legislators are and where the closest district office is, please click here http://www.saplonline.org/congress.htm. Contact the district office for with your meeting request.
Please ask your Representative to co-sponsor H.R. 503 (if they haven' done so already), and also ask your 2 Senators to support (and co-sponsor) the AHSPA when Senator Ensign (R-NV), one of the two veterinarians in the US Congress and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) reintroduce it following recess on Septmber 6th.
For a list of the 113 current HR 503 co-sponsors, please go to http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d109:HR00503:@@@P
For talking points to use during meetings with your legislators, please

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. These meetings are very important. Pro-horse slaughter organizations such as the American Veterinary Medical Association and American Association of Equine Practioners are working hard to misinform YOUR elected officals. Use this time to show your support and present the facts about the cruelty of horse slaughter.
Thank you for your continued help and support on behalf of our horses!
