Open Letter on Horses & Burros to Ken Salazar

The Honorable Ken Salazar
Secretary of the Interior
1849 C Street, N.W.
Washington DC 20240

Dear Secretary Salazar,

On behalf of Friends of Animals, an international animal advocacy organization founded in 1957, I urge you to end roundups of free-roaming horses and burros. I also call on you to halt plans to move mustangs from their home territories in order to store them in the Midwestern and Eastern United States--or anywhere else.

Bureau of Land Management (BLM)

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has proposed a plan that would expand the capture and confinement of wild horses. Under his plan, tens of thousands of additional mustangs (mares and neutered stallions) would be rounded up and sent to holding facilities in the Midwest and Eastern U.S., at taxpayers' expense.

Become Part of the Movement - March for the Mustangs!

When: Thursday, March 25th, 1-3pm.

Where: Lafayette Square Park, Washington, DC (located directly across from White House at 16 Street and H Street, NW).

Give Horses a Valentine: Freedom From Carriages!

February 14th Protest

Have a heart for the horses, and please join Friends of Animals and the Coalition to Ban-Horse Drawn Carriages on Valentine's Day, Sunday, February 14th for a very important day of action and protest for New York City's exploited carriage horses.

Valentine's Day is one of the busiest of the year for the horse-drawn carriage industry. So we're taking to the streets, gathering to inform the public that taking a carriage ride on Valentine's Day means making a date with domination of someone who can't leave the relationship.
