New horse slaughter legislation in the U.S.

Take action to help end U.S. horse slaughter
May 10, 2015- 
The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act was just reintroduced in the House by Rep. Frank Guinta (R-NH) and in the Senate by Sen. Menendez, Robert [D-NJ]. If passed by both the House and the Senate this bill would prohibit the slaughter of horses in the United States for human consumption, as well as the export of live horses for the same purpose.

Take action to help end the possibility of U.S. horse slaughter by sending an automated letter of support to Rep. Frank C Guinta. [R-NH-1]. With your support both people and horses would be protected by this new legislation.

Watch and share this PSA’s from WFLF-SAH, ""Health Alert: Toxic substances and the Human food chain"".

BACKGROUND
In the absence of federal protection, over 100,000 American wild and domestic horses and burros are shipped across federal borders to slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada each year. What most people don't realize is that 92% of the horses sent to slaughter are sound, young and healthy. These are among America’s finest and brightest horses; champion show horses, Thoroughbred racehorses, summer camp ponies and even wild horses taken from their native lands, but the resounding evidence of cruelty to equines inside the U.S. once they are designated as food animals is chilling. And, America’s horses are treated with many substances known to be toxic to humans; substances that can be lethal when ingested by humans, and many of which have been banned from the human food chain in most countries.  All this, and yet horse slaughter proponents are continuing to push for the reopening of horse slaughter plants in the U.S.
Now more than ever, we need to build support and momentum to save the horses and end this cruelty.
Stand and be heard - Stand united for the horses.

When calls and requests come in to help desperate animals in need, we cry every time we have to say no.

At WFLF's Saving America's Horses Initiative, we want to save and help as many animals as possible, but sometimes tough choices must be made.  As a non-profit charity operating in today’s uncertain economy, we value every individual gift that allows us to continue our lifesaving community services to horses in need.

We have stepped up during very troubled times and we are doing our best to secure ongoing funds in a time when there is little to share.  Although we have successfully saved and helped numerous horses from across the country, we realize that not all animals can be saved.  And during these uncertain times it is a leap of faith to say 'yes'.  
 

We are committed to doing the utmost for all the animals served through our lifesaving mission, from feeding starved and homeless horses to rescuing and providing for the essential needs of those who have come through our doors. 
 

For these incoming cruelty victims that have already suffered and lost so much, their rescue is just the beginning of a long and dedicated endeavor to provide the best quality of life possible for them. Click to make a difference

Just over the last eighteen months we have rescued and provided emergency and ongoing care for more than 200 imperiled, neglected, starved and homeless wild horses.  While we were indeed successful in saving and permanently re-homing over one hundred and twenty five of these horses, not all of them were adoptable.  
 

We took that leap of faith when over 75 horses from the devastating Navajo roundups and the Monero's imperiled wild Spanish Mustangs had nowhere else to go.  With your past and pledged support, we promised them that they would be reunited with their family bands, and that their fate would not be to end up in auction yards around the country or on dinner plates abroad.

Today we are sincerely and humbly asking for your help. Funds are urgently needed to pay costly hay and vet bills for horses in need. Please help us now. We truly cannot do this lifesaving without you. Will you help us by making a donation? Will you also share this and ask your friends to match your donation? Wild For Life Foundation cannot do this alone. Please stand by us now. Click here to make a donation today. Thank you

Say NO to Roundups and Slaughter with HOPE Tees for Horses

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Call to Action T-shirts Put America's Horses Front and Center

Lake Mathews, California, April 3, 2015 - The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) today announced the launch of its all new limited edition 'HOPE Tees for Horses' fundraiser t-shirts with a powerful message. The artful t-shirts combine the majesty and beauty of America's most historic icon together a call-to-action for their protection from cruel roundups and slaughter. The WFLF stepped up its creative efforts to raise awareness and funds to aid victimized horses in 2015 following a record breaking year of wild horse rescue and recovery through its lifesaving Mission.  Proceeds from the Saving America's Horses ‘HOPE Tees for Horses’ project work to instantly provide lifesaving rescue, urgently needed quality care, nutritious food, transport and safe housing for needy roundup and cruelty victims.

In honor of wild and domestic horses every where, this month's custom design features the stunning and legendary wild American Mustang stallion, Katzman. He is one of the 45 rare and nearly extinct Spanish Mustangs that was saved under WFLF's Monero Rescue Mission after they lost their Native range-land home and narrowly escaped slaughter.


WFLF first launched its ‘HOPE Tees for Horses’ fundraising t-shirts in January as part of its ‘Give Horses Hope’ campaign.  WFLF’s Saving America’s Horses Initiative and its ‘Give Horses Hope’ campaign is dedicated to wild horse preservation and the prevention of equine cruelty through elevating lifesaving stewardship and the healing hearts of horses. The program strives to inspire the public to take a more active role in protecting and caring for wild and domestic horses. Through humane education, the program delivers a broad and balanced reflection of compelling prevention, conservation and preservation ethics—ways that illuminate how letting go of the old can lead to paths of healing and harmonious coexistence.

Now horse enthusiasts can conveniently add a new artful limited edition t-shirt to their personal collection each month and bring lifesaving aid to horses in need at the same time. Each t-shirt purchased will help to secure quality care and safe peaceful habitats for the neediest of animals coming into Wild For Life Foundation's rescue and sanctuary program. Proceeds from the HOPE Tees for Horses fundraiser provide a consistent, reliable revenue stream that allows us to provide for the most critical needs of victimized equines.
