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.

Spotlight On

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

The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act has been reintroduced by Reps. Guinta (R-NH), Schakowsky (D-IL), Buchanan (R-FL), and Lujan Grisham (D-NM). This bill would ban horse slaughter in the United States, while ensuring American horses are not exported out of the US for the same purpose. Please email, call or write your US representative today and urge her/him to cosponsor H.R. 1942.
