Dear Colorado friends of the horses we love,
As some of you already know, in 2018 I am stepping away from many of the the day to day operations at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch and dedicating my time to legislation.
Please join me by taking 10 min. a month to reach out to our legislators and protect America’s Horses, the innocent and iconic symbols of freedom.
I will send you an email every month similar to this one asking for your help. Please share these emails with your Colorado horse loving friends. Help me make Colorado advocacy movement more active and effective.
Below is quick and easy way to tell those that have the power to save America’s horses how you feel about the current proposal from the BLM advisory board to Kill 90,000 horses that are in long term holding.
Killing is not a solution. This is a band-aid to a problem the BLM has created. Needless to say there are other solutions to the wild horse population as well as the domestic horse issues.
Mass killing is not the answer, I hope we can agree on that…
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Here are the talking points:
- When calling your U.S. representative, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton, CO. As your constituent, I urge you to protect our nation’s horses from slaughter and our wild horses from mass extermination in the final FY18 Appropriations bill. Please also reach out to leadership and urge them to support these protections. Thank you.
- When calling your U.S. senators, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton Colorado. As your constituent and a strong supporter of equine welfare, I urge you to please support the Senate version of the Agriculture Appropriations bill, which prohibits the use of federal funds on horse slaughter. Please also support a prohibition on the use of our tax dollars to kill tens of thousands of wild horses and burros. Thank you.
Here are the contacts: some you need to go to the WEBSITE to get their contact form, then copy paste the above requests.
I often visit their Facebook/twitter accounts and post simple versions of the above like
