The newest anti-slaughter bill, H.R. 3355, Save America’s Forgotten Equines Act (SAFE Act), has been introduced into the House of Representatives in May, 2021. We are closer now to getting horse slaughter as well as the transportation of horses to slaughter banned permanently in the United States than we probably have ever been.
This bill is bi-partisan and has the support of both Democrats and Republicans.
The SAFE Act has a very good chance to be passed as long as we are able to tell our representatives that we want them to support this bill.
The time is NOW to get as many representatives to co-sign this bill and to finally end horse slaughter in the United States.
