Billboard Campaign More Important Than Ever!
HELP URGENTLY NEEDED!
You may have heard Conference Committee Chair Sen. Herb Kohl (D-WI), Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) voted to reject de-funding of inspections for horses bound for slaughter for human consumption. Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA) was the lone supporter of continued de-funding of the inspections.
On November 18, 2011 President Obama signed this federal ag bill into law.
What does that mean exactly? That means that horse slaughter plants could possibly reopen in the United States of America.
How could this have happened when millions of Americans are opposed to horse slaughter? Simple, the pro slaughter lobby is a well funded machine thriving on the blood money of the accidental industry of brutality and horror - horse slaughter.
Proganda like this United Horsemen newsletter have helped allow this atrocity to occur. (See my reply to their original email to Angel Acres and their "rescue plans" - HERE.)
In my opinion, they have been able to package horse slaughter to the non horse savvy public to appear as a public service that benefits horses and provides a service to horse owners.
Horses suffer at every step of the process - from transport to killing floor - many anti slaughter websites have undercover video of the horrors & inhumane treatment taking place at slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico.
We have been watching the hits to the billboards companion website Stop Slaughtering US increase DAILY everywhere there is a billboard up! We are up to 12,000+ hits per week. This means we ARE making an impact and raising awareness, one state at a time.
Horse slaughter is NOT harvesting, processing, rendering; it is horrifically and brutally slaughtering innocent horses who have given their lives (in more cases than not) for their owners.
The Angel Acres Anti Horse Slaughter Awareness Campaign is a grassroots effort designed to change that, one driver and one billboard at a time. This one is URGENT - PLEASE HELP by DONATING today!
We receive no federal, state or corporate funding for this awareness and now, even more important educational effort.
PLEASE help us raise the funds needed to get more billboards up, NOW.
You can click HERE to donate securely online to the campaign - Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, is a 501c3 nonprofit organization & all donations are tax deductible.
