Time is running out to pass the SAFE Act to ban horse slaughter in the United States and the export of American horses for slaughter!

The number of representatives backing the SAFE Act to ban horse slaughter has reached 236 – easily surpassing a majority (218) but still falling short of the number (290) needed to force a floor vote. Likewise, the Senate bill has not passed out of committee.

The number of legislative days remaining in this Congress is dwindling but must not give up. Much can still happen — especially in the days following an election.

Here’s what you can do:

Send a message to your representatives through our website.

–Call your representative and senators, let them know you’re a constituent, and (politely) urge them to back this bipartisan legislation (H.R. 961 in the House, S. 2006 in the Senate). Capitol switchboard number: (202) 224-3121.

–Call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and urge them to bring the SAFE Act (H.R. 961 / S. 2006) to ban horse slaughter up for a vote. Capitol switchboard number: (202) 224-3121.

–Share our SAFE Act posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

–Tell your friends and family how to get involved. If they’d like to learn more about the issue, point them here: https://bit.ly/30psbhU
