Former Chief Inspector for the USDA, Dr Lester Friedlander joins as Advisory Board Member for SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, the movie.

After blowing the whistle on the lack of enforcement of humane regulations inside U.S. slaughter plants, Dr Lester Friedlander was asked to leave the USDA. As highly regarded speaker, Dr. Friedlander has since continued his work independently striving to enlighten and educate the public. He is recognized in the Who's Who in Veterinary Science and Medicine, and for his work on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Federal Veterinarians in Washington DC and he had received numerous awards including USDA Certificates of Merit and Commendation and USDA Veterinary Trainer of the Year.
Veterinarian, Animal Welfare Advocate, Environmentalist, Researcher, Author and Lecturer, Lester Friedlander, DVM began his career as a farm veterinarian. Prior to working for the USDA, Dr. Friedlander worked as a horse racing veterinarian under the New York State Racing and Wagering Board. Dr. Friedlander then worked for over ten years as a Supervisory Veterinary Medical Officer for the United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety Inspection Service.
"We are honored to have Dr. Friedlander on the board of advisers for this important film," says Katia Louise, Filmmaker and President of the Wild for Life Foundation. "Dr. Friedlander is also a speaker in the film and recently appeared as a panel speaker at the film's showing at the AMC Kansas City International Film Festival."

SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES is an enlightening social experience rich in the history of how we as a society exist and share our world with other species that we respect and rely upon to survive.  When we look at how we treat our horses we discover more about ourselves. This film is a brilliant and hard hitting exposé that reveals how the public has been misled by government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, the public and the environment. 

SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES is receiving rave reviews and has won multiple international awards, through the film festival circuit, but timing is pivotal for America’s horses; their very survival is at stake. That's why it's crucial to get SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES released this year.
