AAHS Action Alert

Dear Friends,

We are launching what could be one of the largest letter writing campaigns yet!

But, we can't succeed without your help! Our membership and grassroots organization is stronger than ever because of you.

Now it's time to show how well organized we really are and to underscore our united effort as Americans Against Horse Slaughter!

This collaborated effort is designed to create huge impact and to strengthen our membership.

Please join us in the "Letters to the Editor" Campaign from now until April 30th. We will provide you with a link that will take you to all the Newspapers across the country. Just click on your state and click on the Newspapers you wish to write to. You can write to 5 newspapers at one time and even continue to write to more of them if you have the time.

Please feel free to write your own letter or copy and paste the templated letter below. The templated letter was designed to be short and to the point. Please use your own name but always add Americans Against Horse Slaughter to your signature to show that power is in numbers.

Good Luck and please let us know if you get your letter printed.

The Letter:

Wake Up America!!
Not even the Sport of Kings could provide a Royal ending for Ferdinand.

Horse Slaughter is still alive and thriving.
I recently learned about the cruel and brutal practice of horse slaughter and had no idea that Ferdinand; the 1986 Kentucky Derby winner was slaughtered in Japan and sold as a delicacy for human consumption.

I was astounded to learn that in 2008, approximately 133,000 U.S. Horses were exported to Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered for their meat and sold for the sole purpose as a delicacy for dinner plates overseas.

In fact, according to the USDA, 92% of our horses going to slaughter every year are the young and healthy horses that could easily go on to second careers and new homes.
There is much wrong with those that continue to turn their back on the only American icon that helped build this country. Horse Slaughter is NOT euthanasia. Horse slaughter is a painful and brutal ending to a horse’s life.

Please urge your U.S. Representative and two U. S Senators to co-sponsor The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act - House bill, H.R.503 and the Senate bill, S.727.
