THANK GOD! All our hard work has paid off. No horse slaughter plants on US soil. Now we must get the S.A.F.E. Act passed so that no American horse can be sent to slaughter in a foreign country. Happy to say Senator Susan Collins of my state (Maine) is a cosponsor! She's awesome! We need to keep the pressure on for this to pass in both the Senate (S-541) and the House of Representatives (HR-1094). My personal thanks to every one of you who signed all the petitions I have put on here. This is a real victory!!

Horses and their people will have much to celebrate during the year of the horse. On Monday, Jan. 13, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) announced that horse slaughter will not return to the United States in 2014.

The United States Congress just released the new funding bill for fiscal year 2014. This massive bill is more than a trillion tax dollars - but not a dime will be spent on inspections that enable the slaughter of horses for human consumption.
