NM group proposes legislation to help horse owners, rescues,...
If this is a repeat of an earlier post, please disregard and forgive. I am much too busy these days and have lost track of where I have been or where I am going. lol
Here is some good news from New Mexico. Every state should be doing the same!
NM is the only state required to register equine rescues. Whether that is a good or bad thing is a matter of differing opinions, however, here is a great idea stemming from NM that every state should be working towards, regardless of any registration requirement....
The recently passed Economic Stimulus Act provides BILLIONS for non-profits, so there IS money available to NPO rescues who apply;
A group of animal rights activists, Animal Protection of New Mexico, is working to get a bill through the Legislature that would establish a permanent fund to help subsidize equine euthanasia and provide grants to licensed horse shelters to help with renovations and upkeep.
(will be posting link to full article soon, so be sure to check bak)
while Im at at, also going 'round;
The Mentality of Slaughterhouse Workers;
WARNING: Graphic pics & language!
Would you want a slaughterhouse in your neighborhood?
Would you want your son or daughter to work at one of these?
Would you want one of these guys to move in next door to you?
Would you want your daughter to be dating one?
For those who ask for more slaughterhouses, take a good look
and see what you would be inviting into your state, your counties, and your towns.
*Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
Thank you for your time.
