Join us on March 8th to help horses



Join us for an evening to celebrate horses and the HSUS Equine Protection program. Horses are depending on us to protect them. These majestic animals who were once the center of American life are too often the target of abuse, cruelty, and neglect. It is our job to protect them.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Equine Protection program works to end the slaughter of American horses, promote humane horsemanship, give sanctuary to abused and rescued horses, and stop cruel practices like the soring of show horses. In 2014, in conjunction with The HSUS’s 60th anniversary, we will work tirelessly to raise awareness and advocate for passage of state and federal legislation, including the SAFE Act, to permanently end the slaughter of American horses for human consumption. It is time we protect these noble animals whose history is tied so closely to our own.

Evening Details : Cocktail reception 6:00–8:00 p.m. Buffet dinner 8:00 p.m.

To respect our cause, a vegan/vegetarian menu will be offered. Business casual attire
