Why we're here

We are taking a stand against horse slaughter returning to the US and are striving to stop the transportation of horses to other countries for slaughter. Some of us are working in those other countries as well.

We are taking this stance as Pagans and Heathens, at a time when it seems some have decided that eating slaughtered horse meat in ritual is somehow cool, edgy and "ancestral." Therefore we want to show that that minority does not represent all of the Pagan and Heathen communities. Many of us worship Horse Deities, many of us are horse people who may see our horses as sacred charges who we care for to honor these Deities. Not by killing but by striving to give them good lives.

Petition to the White House

I am hoping that folks have already been writing to their Senators and Representatives about supporting the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 (S.B. 1176/H.R. 2966). Now there is a petition on the White House petition site to ask Obama to support this bill. Please sign this, we need to get this done now. It's been so long.

We petition the Obama administration to: Support a Ban on Horse Slaughter

You do need to create an account, but that's pretty painless, once done you will find many other petitions that you may wish to take part in. Like ...

Restore the Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 to its original intent that no organization or person be exempt.

Which needs 5,000 signatures and is well below 200!
