THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO
Clare from SkyDog Sanctuary has compiled this list below. Thank you, Clare.
Helping is so easy! Making the phone call is not intimidating – usually you will simply leave a message.
Please help our Wild Ones. Massive extermination seems to be on the table – and it just CANNOT HAPPEN.
REPOSTED FROM SKYDOG
SO for another time I am posting this information for anyone who is moved by his beauty to pick up the phone and stand up for him and all the other wild horses we love.
The markup on the Department of Interior/BLM budget in the Senate Appropriations Committee has been postponed several times but we cannot stop calling Committee members to say US taxpayers do NOT want money spent on killing, euthanizing or unlimited sales of healthy wild horses and burros in holding or on the range.
Call any of these senators and you will probably be leaving a message to an assistant or on a machine and you can simply say :
“I strongly urge you to maintain protections for Wild Horses and Burros and oppose any action that would allow for the euthanizing, killing or slaughter of America’s wild horses. Thank you.”
I know you might have done it before but we cannot call too many times, and if you have never done it before – I promise its not scary – it is a three minute call to make your views heard to your Government. Politicians are elected to serve us and it is so important to make your voices heard and let them know how you feel about their votes on certain issues. They know that their jobs depend on keeping their constituents happy and reflecting their wishes so let’s all tell them how we feel about their management of our mustangs.
This is a full list of senators sitting on that Committee who will decide the fates of our mustangs………..

October 23, 2017
As you know by now, the Senate Appropriations Committee has again delayed markup hearings for Fiscal Year 2018 Interior appropriations legislation. The markups are tentatively scheduled for the week of October 30th, although there is still a lot of uncertainty in the schedule.
This means we have more time to keep up the pressure.
We are heavily focused on ensuring that the Senate hears your voices demanding continued protections for wild horses and burros. We’re working hard to to stop narrow special interests from successfully overriding the judgment of 80% of Americans who believe that killing wild horses and burros is unacceptable.
This week, thanks to your support, we have launched a series of online ads targeted at Capitol Hill using this video. This is in addition to our billboards in Salt Lake City, Phoenix and Las Vegas, the television ads targeting key Representatives in Nevada, Virginia, Oklahoma and California, and the commercial aimed at Senator Murkowski which resulted in at least 100 constituent calls to her Anchorage office.
With potentially only a week left, your calls and emails are literally the backstop against the heavy-handed lobbying efforts of pro-slaughter forces.
The enemies of our magnificent wild horses are organized and powerful. Make no mistake, however. They can be defeated by the power of the people … but only if we continue the fight and make sure our voices heard. Please keep up the pressure!
1) Click here to look up your Senators’ phone numbers. You can tell them: I strongly urge you to maintain protections for Wild Horses and Burros — and oppose any effort that would allow for the euthanizing, killing or slaughter of America’s wild horses. I am part of the 80% who opposes slaughter.
2) After you call, you can send an email to your Senators on the same web-page.
3) Pressure them on social media.

If you only have Facebook, search for your Senators Facebook pages, and leave a comment in a recent post. Tell them: I am with the 80% of Americans who say #NoHorseSlaughter. Maintain protections from killing and slaughter for America’s wild horses.
Our wild horses and burros are worth the effort, so please take just a moment to act on their behalf today. We’ll keep you posted.
But let’s end this by focusing back on a bunch of horses that are living their lives as they should, worry free, well fed, loved and happy. Here by popular demand is Jackson (and his mares) x
