SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED is a 90 min feature documentary film & a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to animal lovers worldwide. Released to theaters in 2012 with widening distribution targeted for educational venues, DVD and online release, the film inspires hope and compels social action for change. This intelligent expose reveals how the public has been misled by special interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, the people and the environment
In the absence of federal protection, approx 100,000 wild and domestic horses and burros are shipped across federal borders to slaughterhouses each year. Wild horses and burros are rapidly diminishing in the wild and there is no guarantee of humane treatment for any equines in America once they are labeled for slaughter. Special interests are aggressively targeting American tax dollars to re-open horse slaughter in the U.S. The public health risks are many; the environmental impact is grave.
SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES introduces hope and solutions despite the Bureau of Land Management's misguided efforts to exterminate the last of America's wild horses and burros in the wild. Sadly 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: two Federal laws which are meant to protect them, are left virtually worthless.
The long-term benefits of this powerful educational resource are endless and will be felt for generations to come. Your donations will help support a widening release of this landmark documentary to educational venues, and beyond, so that the public will have access to the true facts and can take action toward viable solutions for positive change.
