- Spread the word about horse slaughter.
- Support efforts in your state to oppose horse slaughter. If several states prohibit it, a federal ban would then be possible.
- Don't buy articles made from horse hide, i.e., "Corinthian Leather", clothing and accessories made from "Pony Skin", and brushes and other items made from horse hair.
- Don't support business that send their unwanted horses to slaughter.
Write your Senator, let them know that you will no longer tolerate this.
California has outlawed selling horses for slaughter, we must change the laws in every state! TWO horse slaughterhouses are located in TEXAS!
