How You Can Help Ban Horse Slaughter in Maine!
Written by MFOA   
Friday, 22 February 2013

Support MFOA sponsored legislation, L.D. 1286,  "An Act to Protect Maine Communities from Environmental Hazards by Prohibiting Horse Slaughter in Maine for Human Consumption and the Transport of Horses for Slaughter"

Know the issues: view Horse Slaughter in Maine ‘Fact Sheet' .

Contact your State Representative:

Contact your State Senator:


A letter and follow-up call (brief) is best. Email and an email follow-up a couple of weeks later is also good. Be brief, accurate, courteous and to the point -- a single page letter is most effective. Refer them to the MFOA Fact Sheet. Remember to state your opinion in a professional, factual and respectful manner.

Write or email members of the Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Conservation:

Encourage like-minded friends and associates: to contact their legislators and give them these guidelines.

Write a letter-to-the-editor: to your local daily and weekly newspapers It can be similar to the letter you write your legislators (with similar guidelines). Note the bill in your letter.
