Ways You Can Help End Horse Slaughter

Whether you are a child or an adult, there are ways that you can help end horse slaughter and even right from your computer!

If you are a child, WRITE ME YOUR LETTERS about what horses mean to you, why you like them, why you think horses are special and how you want them treated humanely.  I leave for Washington DC SOON and I would really like to take your letters and drawings with me to show our Congress and Senate that AMERICA'S KIDS CARE about what happens to our horses!  Send your letters to me at:
Declan Gregg C/O Children 4 Horses
PO Box 614
Greenland, NH 03840

I have a meeting with Congressman Frank Guinta (R-NH) on Monday, March 26th when I will talk to him about why I think horse slaughter should be banned for ever and then he will be taking me on the House Floor during a vote to see how it all works.  On Tuesday, March 27th, I will be attending a press conference, sponsored by Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia, with organizers from the Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA) as well as other supporters, and then heading to the offices of the Congressmen and Senators to give them your letters!!  Congressman Guinta's office has also arranged for a Capitol tour for me after we deliver the letters.

Kids - you can also help by asking the adults you live with and know to contact their legislators and ask them to support/co-sponsor the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act S.1176/H.R.2966.  I have been getting letters from adults as well as kids, who want to see horse slaughter end for good.


Adults, please contact your legislators and let them know that you want to have horse slaughter banned for good and that you don't want to see our horses shipped across borders to slaughter either!
Here is a link to a website that has a full list of our US Congressmen and how to contact them:

And here's a link for a full list of the US Senators and how to contact them:

If you aren't really sure why to say, the HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) has made it really easy for you!!  Use this link and sign a letter that they will send right out to your legislators for you!

Or you can go to this link from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) if you would like and they will do the same thing!

I know my work is making a difference everyday and that makes me VERY happy!  Every time someone reads my blog or visits Children 4 Horses on Facebook, I know that they care and want to see America's horses treated humanely!

To support Declan and help him with his travel expenses for Washington DC, and his letter writing supplies, please consider buying a Children 4 Horses t-shirt or bracelet - or both!  ~Declan
