"SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED" is a 90 min feature documentary & a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to animal lovers worldwide. Released to theaters and now targeted for the educational circuit, DVD release, this film inspires hope and compels social action for change. This intelligent expose reveals how the public has been misled by certain government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, the people and the environment.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In the absence of federal protection, over 100,000 sound, young and healthy American wild and domestic horses and burros are shipped across federal borders to slaughter plants each year. There is no guarantee of humane treatment for them in America's slaughterhouses, yet special interest groups are aggressively targeting YOUR tax dollars to re-open horse slaughter in the US. The public health risks are many; the environmental impact is grave.
How will this project solve this problem?
As the Bureau of Land Management exterminates the last of America's wild horses and burros in the wild, and thousands of wild and domestic equines are systemically mistreated, removed, and transported for human consumption abroad, and as the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act and Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act which are meant to protect them are left virtually worthless, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES introduces hope and solutions.
Potential Long Term Impact
The long-term benefits of this powerful educational resource are endless and will be felt for generations to come. Your donations will be used to help complete the platform release of this landmark documentary to the educational circuit, onto DVD and beyond so that the public will have access to the true facts and can take action toward viable solutions for positive change.
