Fate of 90,000 Horses to be Decided in Congress Next Week

We have just eight days until Congress must make a decision on spending legislation for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2018. Behind the scenes negotiations are going on RIGHT NOW as Congress decides between the Senate Interior spending bill, which prohibits killing and slaughter of wild horses and burros, and the House version, which would allow the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to destroy up to 90,000 mustangs and burros. It’s time to reach out to House and Senate leadership to save the lives of our American mustangs and burros – will you make the calls today?

What You Can Do

1. Call the Leadership of the House and Senate. See numbers below. Simply deliver this message: “I’m calling to urge Senator/Representative _____ to keep horse slaughter out of 2018 spending legislation by maintaining the Senate versions of Agriculture and Interior Appropriations bills. Please stand with the 80% of Americans who oppose horse slaughter and want our wild horses protected and humanely managed, not killed or slaughtered.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer: (202) 224-6542
House Speaker Paul Ryan: (202) 225-3031
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy: (202) 225-2915
