The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition
We are a collective of people and national groups that have joined forces in order to ban the slaughter of equines for human consumption in Canada, as well as the export of live horses to other countries for the same purpose.
Coalition Canadienne pour la Défense des Chevaux
Nous sommes un collectif de personnes et de groupes nationaux qui ont unis leurs forces afin d’obtenir l’interdiction au Canada de l’abattage des équidés destinés à la consommation humaine, ainsi que de l’exportation de chevaux vivants vers d’autres pays à des fins d’abattage.
The CHDC is pleased to announce two new campaigns for Summer 2013 to help horses.
The first is “DO YOU WANT MY VOTE?” which has postcards that can be mailed, postage free to your MP to ask them to support Bill C-322, the bill to ban horse slaughter and the export of horses for same in Canada. Please click here for details.
Our second campaign is for petitions to go to Parliament to show that the vast majority of Canadians support Bill C-322 and want an end to horse slaughter in Canada. Details about the petitions and the chance to win a beautiful, signed print titled “The Guardian” can be found here.
The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition has released Proof of CFIA Failure, an in-depth report on the fate of Silky Shark, a Standardbred racehorse, who was slaughtered and slipped through the system, when his carcass should have been condemned.
CHDC releases a report on the large number of equine feedlots in Alberta:
The CHDC is pleased to announce a new feature on our web site!
Welcome to “Equine Spotlight”, where we will regularly feature a horse, donkey or mule available for adoption or sponsorship through one of our qualified rescue centres.
Our first horse is ZOE, from Free Spirit Sanctuary. Please click on Zoe’s picture to real all about her.
