Homeless YES! "Unwanted" NO
Have you or someone you know been misled or duped about horse slaughter? Horse slaughter is NOT humane euthanasia. The so called "unwanted horse problem" is a phrase coined by the AAEP to support their position in favor of horse slaughter. You may be a follower, or be a member of one of the entities listed below and not even realize that they are actively fighting to reopen horse slaughter plants in the US. You or an entity you belong to might even be parroting their favorite pro slaughter argument; the so called "unwanted horse problem". You may be supporting an entity that has aligned with UHC's position even though you remain adamantly against horse slaughter. Your own rescue organization may even be listed on the Unwanted Horse Coalition's website as a supporter without your knowledge or permission…

Please Beware!! 

Pro slaughter proponents have one of the strongest lobbyists around; the Ag Department. (The US Department of Agriculture)

A Partial Listing of some of the entities that support horse slaughter, or that are listed as member organizations of the Unwanted Horse Coalition (a pro slaughter proponent) are listed below:
* AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners)
* AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association)
* The Unwanted Horse Coalition
* UOH (United Org of the Horse)
* United Horseman's Front
* AHC (American Horse Council)
* AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association)
* American Humane Association
* Various State Horse Councils
* American Paint Horse Association
* The Farm Bureau
* BLM (Bureau of Land Management)
* The Jockey Club
* California Thoroughbred Breeders Association
* Arabian Horse Association
* Maryland Horse Breeders Association

The Unwanted Horse Coalition (UHC) supports horse slaughter, and the UOH (United Org of the Horse) works to restore horse meat processing (horse slaughter) in the US; and control the so called overpopulation of wild and feral horses on federal, state, tribal, and private lands.

For a more complete list of entities that are on record as supporting horse slaughter, click here.

Don't be duped by pro slaughter attempts to misinform the public. The UOH (United Org of the Horse) claims that Tribal horse people from across the Nation have joined their cause. They also claim that name celebrities have been paid off to advocate against animal cruelty... But these things are NOT true.

WFLF suggests that all anti slaughter rescues double check the UHC list of so-called supporting rescues to see if they are listed there. If you find someone you know that is listed on the UHC website, but in reality is against horse slaughter, let them know.

WFLF HUMANION FILMS covers the topic of the “unwanted horse” in the feature documentary film "SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED". Due to escalating activities of the pro slaughter proponents we are heightening exposure on this aspect prior to the release of the film to further protect equines from this barbaric industry. Please visit our website to learn more.

Support the WFLF "WANTED HORSE CAMPAIGN". Stomp out cruelty. The "unwanted horse" argument is a pro-slaughter position. Slaughter makes cruelty profitable. Please support the WFLF "Wanted Horse Campaign". Together were are their voice and they need to be heard.
