Many people believe that horse slaughter has ended because the three US horse slaughter plants have closed. This is not true. The slaughter of American horses continues: our horses are cruelly transported thousands of miles to Canada and Mexico.


To amend the Horse Protection Act to designate additional unlawful acts under the Act, strengthen penalties for violations of the Act, improve Department of Agriculture enforcement of the Act, and for other purposes.

Follow the progress of this bill:


Double Decker Transportation

Since October 7, 2011 the new amendment of the Commercial Transport of Equines to Slaughter Regulation is in effect, making it illegal to use double deck trailers for any transport of slaughter horses. However, the protection of the regulation is only as good as its enforcement.
