United States: Urge Congress to Protect Pigs from Cruel High-Speed Slaughter      


THIS ACTION IS FOR US RESIDENTS ONLY.

Earlier this year, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a final rule removing all line speed limits and allowing pig slaughterhouses across the country to police themselves – leaving millions of pigs vulnerable to increased suffering and terror.

Last month we asked you to contact your federal senators to protect pigs from high-speed slaughter. Now we need you to urge your federal senators and representative to keep language from the House Agriculture Appropriations bill in the final 2020 budget that would block funding for the implementation of this rule.
 

Protect pigs by following the steps below.
 

  1. Call your federal legislators. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so. You can use this message:  I’m calling to ask my legislator to keep language from the House Agriculture Appropriations bill in the final 2020 budget halting the new swine inspection rule.
    1. Find your senators’ contact information.
    2. Find your representative’s contact information.
       
  2. After calling, send a follow-up email to your federal legislators using the form below. Personalizing your message will help it stand out.

You will be able to view and personalize the message sent to your representative on the next page.
