The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

September 18--HSUS-Throw A Party to Save Our Horses

(from the Humane Society of the United States)
On September 18, Host a House Party to Keep America's Horses Home on the Range!

The Humane Society Legislative Fund, the lobbying arm of The Humane Society and the Fund for Animals, invites you to host or attend the first ever Party Animals event on September 18, 2005, to spread the word on what you, your family, your friends, and your neighbors can do to save America's horses. Whether you host or attend a party, you'll be part of a network of animal advocates on September 18 who will take part in a simultaneous nationwide conference call at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT with HSUS President and CEO Wayne Pacelle and a special surprise guest. Together, you'll learn the awful truth about America's horses and how they're slaughtered by the thousands for human consumption overseas. You'll also learn about the federal legislation we're working on to end horse slaughter, and about how you can help save American horses from cruel slaughterhouses.

You can "party with a purpose" in one of two ways:

Host a Party: Invite your friends, neighbors, and fellow animal advocates over for an afternoon party on Sunday, September 18, and help save horses by raising money for the Humane Society Legislative Fund's lobbying campaign to pass a horse slaughter bill in the U.S. Senate. We have set a $300 goal for each party, and we'll provide expert advice and tips to help you meet and exceed that goal. Hosts will dial in their parties to the nationwide conference call at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT, so we recommend that you begin your event one hour prior. Click here to start setting up your party -- it only takes a few minutes.

Attend a Party: Hosts need attendees! So don't miss your chance to have a great time at a Party Animals event while making a difference for America's horses. You can even meet fellow animal advocates in your area! Click here to find the party nearest you. If you don't see one in your area, please check back -- new hosts will be setting up parties everyday! If you can't attend a party but would still like to help, click here to make a contribution to the Humane Society Legislative Fund.
