ARKANSAS NEEDS OUR HELP!!!

From AAHS Arkansas state leader Tamme

Please help and pass this on to everyone and ask them to oppose this legislation.

Its the work of the National Conference of State Legislatures behind all this "state-by-state" organizing;

Greetings Fellow Equine Lovers, Protectors, Rescuers & Advocates!

Have you heard the latest about the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) and their pro-slaughter agenda?

Here are a few petitions to hopefully counter-act some of their workings since they have "officially" come out for horse slaughter and in opposition of our national anti-horse slaughter efforts....as you can see by the petitions below, they are organizing through their state legislative processes on a state-by-state basis to keep the slaughter going and to get horse slaughter plants in their respective states.

We must meet them and oppose them at every turn!
