Kyra is a young girl from Pennsylvania...last week she had a birthday and instead of asking for gifts...she asked for donations so she could help us help stop the brutal slaughter of American horses.
The day we received this sweet letter in the mail (we had no idea she was doing this till the letter below arrived) we literally had just met with our Canadian contacts and picked our next billboard location.
Thousands of American horses are shipped to Canada to be slaughtered each year - for a few dollars our horses are subjected to unspeakable horror and pain.
How could this be happening when millions of Americans are opposed to horse slaughter? WHY are our horses being shipped across the border to be brutally slaughtered to feed foreign consumers?
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" older but still pertitent - 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!
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! (PayPal donations can be sent firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 this important board 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.
