Task Force in NH Working To Raise Billboard!
Angel Acres Anti Horse Slaughter Awareness Billboard Campaign
This nationwide campaign is working to raise awareness about the inhumane slaughter of America’s beloved horses through billboard raising. The campaign began in January, 2011 and as a result, billboards have been raised in 14 states.
You can help!
Please attend the New Hampshire Against Horse Slaughter “Stop Slaughtering Us” Billboard Task Force for a fundraising event on Sunday, July 24. The fundraiser will take place at Uno Chicago Grill, 238 Indian Brook Drive, Dover, NH.
20% of all sales will go towards an anti horse slaughter billboard in New Hampshire.
Note: You must present a ticket in order for Uno to make this donation.
Horse Slaughter FYI MYTH: Only sick and old horses are sent to slaughter. FACT: A U.S. Dept of Agriculture study revealed that more than 92% of horses going to slaughter are healthy.
MYTH: Horse slaughter is like being "put down". FACT: Horse slaughter is NOT humane euthanasia. Each year over 100,000 healthy, sound, sane horses are shipped to Mexico and Canada to be brutally slaughtered. These horses travel over 30 hours in horrific conditions, deprived of food, water and rest. The slaughter process includes being hit repeatedly in the forehead with a captive bolt, strung up by their hind legs, and having their throats slit to bleed them out. Please help New Hampshire to raise awareness for this cause and make every horse count!
