Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

SAFE Act to End the Slaughter of American Horses - Photo by Ben Hamilton

The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, H.R. 113, has been reintroduced in the House of Representatives by Reps. Vern Buchanan (R-FL), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Ed Royce (R-CA) and Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM). This bill would ban horse slaughter in the United States, while ensuring American horses are not exported out of the country for the same purpose.
