Fighting to End Horse Abuse

Congress held a hearing last week on the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act. Help us keep the pressure on Congress to pass this critical legislation.

This has been a critical couple weeks for all of us fighting to end the disturbing and cruel practice of horse soring. Last Wednesday, a congressional subcommittee heard testimony during a hearing focused on H.R. 1518, the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, which would strengthen the enforcement and penalties for the federal law against horse soring. This hearing was a critical step.

The pressure is building, but we need your help to keep it up. Please make a one-time donation of just $20 to the Humane Society Legislative Fund to help us advocate for legislation to end horse soring and other forms of animal cruelty and abuse.

Horse industry groups, veterinarians, and animal advocates, Democrats and Republicans, are all coming together to pass this important bill. The bill already has 234 co-sponsors in the House.

We’re working overtime to convince Congress to take action to put an end to the deliberate cruelty inflicted on these majestic animals. Beatings. Neglect. Chemicals applied to hooves to cause intense pain and exaggerate a horse’s gait — all to force the horse to raise its legs and win some prize. It’s torture and it’s unconscionable.

With your help, we’ll put an end to this inhumane and criminal practice. Your donation will give us the support we need to continue fighting to end horse soring and other forms of animal cruelty and abuse.

Horse soring should never be allowed to happen. And, together, we can stop it. Thanks for all that you do for animals.
