Dear Friends,
Today marks the first day of the two-week Congressional April recess in which your members of Congress return "home" to their districts and states. This two-week window is the best opportunity for you to meet with your federal legislators and ask them to co-sponsor the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act (H.R. 503/S. 727) to finally end the cruelty and suffering endured by horses sent to slaughter.
A personal meeting is the most persuasive method of communication a citizen advocate can use.Please take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your legislators face-to-face and be the voice that horses need now more than ever. Schedule appointments with your federal legislators -- or their staff -- to urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 503/S. 727.
Please meet with your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators to urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 503/S. 727. Look up your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators and visit their websites to locate the closest district offices and the phone numbers to request appointments.

After your meetings, please contact The HSUS Government Affairs team at http://us.mc325.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=legislation@humanesociety.org&subject=District%20meeting%20on%20H.R.%20503/S.%20727 to let us know how it went. If your legislators are unable to set up a meeting, there are several other actions you can take during this critical time to help horses.
Thank you for continuing to fight to protect horses from slaughter.
