National BLM Call-In Campaign
Originating from the Equine Welfare Alliance, representing over 290 member organizations and over 1,000 individual members worldwide in 21 countries. This campaign is strongly supported by Habitat for Horses.
From now until Sally Jewell does something positive for our horses other than promise to “study the situation.”
Start Calls: 8am EDT when DC offices open
Hi Everyone. It’s time to take the offensive for our horses. It’s time to change the way DC does business with horse advocates. So Tuesday we start our National Call-In Campaign.
An EWA member has written a passionate plea in hopes of prompting all of us not only to make these critical calls but to recruit as many people as possible to also chime in. This is only the first step in our new and energized efforts to free the wild horses and burros and stop slaughtering American horses. Next we target congress and force them to address and pass the SAFE ACT.
At the bottom you will see the four numbers we will call UNTIL Sally Jewell and the BLM respond to our requests: halt the roundups/gathers and investigate the BLM and make ALL any CHANGES that will result in the most humane treatment for the wild horses and burros.
You will see suggestions as to what to say when you get though to her offices. These are short and to the point. And please, don’t limit yourself to one call. When you find time, call again. Our horses need everyone one of us…..and more!!
Thanks to everyone for your passion and sacrifice of time.
ANGRY ABOUT THE BLM AND OUR DYING MUSTANGS?
This intensive phone technique has worked for other just protests in the past, and our wild equines need us to make a huge effort to save them at this critical point in time! I am not speaking about 10 or 20 people on the phones: I am speaking about 5,000+ callers flooding those lines from 8 am to 6 pm daily! Animal advocates just like you from throughout the USA are joining this call crusade. Secretary Jewell hasn’t listened to anyone about our equines yet!!! With this call crusade, we are going to strongly and persistently persuade her to listen to us and to rein in the BLM.
Log onto the Department of the Interior’s official website or, better yet, Secretary Jewell’s Twitter site. Be prepared to see propaganda that describes the paradise that is our wilderness and her invitations to go out and enjoy it all! Of course she doesn’t mention the oil rigs and topped mountains and mines and mustang holding pens you will see as you go out into this wonderland. But those are the things Sally Jewell of oil industry fame was hired for-green energy efforts and to hell with all wildlife in that rigged wilderness paradise.
I AM NOT ASKING YOU-I AM BEGGING YOU-TO PLEASE NETWORK THIS PLEA TO AS MANY SYMPATHETIC FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS YOU CAN. This is a timed effort and we need as many callers as possible. Call these numbers every day if you can!
IT’S MUCH LATER THAN WE THINK REGARDING THIS TRAGEDY! AN ENTIRE SPECIES HAS BEEN VIRTUALLY WIPED OUT BY OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, and you and I have paid for these murders with our taxes! WHY? TO CATER TO SPECIAL INTERESTS LIKE RANCHERS AND CATTLEMEN AND DRILLERS AND OTHER CORPORATE LOBBIESTS. OUR WILD ANIMALS HAVE BEEN BETRAYED FOR MONEY.
AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA HAS NOT LIFTED A FINGER TO PROTECT THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS, AS HE PROMISED HE WOULD!
PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN THIS CALL CRUSADE-PLEASE!
Please be passionate but professional and persistent, as you may get pushback.
These are the numbers to Secretary Jewell’s three offices:
Main line: 1-202-208-3100
The Office of Communications: 1-202-208-6416
Appointments office: 1-202-208-7551
Branch office: 1-202-208-3181
Hello, my name is __________ and I am calling about the BLM’s cruel treatment of our wild horses and burros.
- “I am SHOCKED at what happened to our native horses at Fallon. Please tell Secretary Jewell that the BLM must immediately erect shelters for the Nevada mustangs trapped in sunbaked holding pens there”
- “I URGE THE SECRETARY TO STOP ALL MUSTANG AND BURRO ROUNDUPS AND GATHERS UNTIL SHE HAS LEARNED HOW HER AGENCY HAS CONSISTENTLY COMMITTED CRIMES AGAINST THESE INNOCENT WILD ANIMALS FOR 40+ YEARS.”
- ” I URGE THE SECRETARY TO WATCH A BRUTAL BLM HELICOPTER ROUNDUPINPERSON AND TO VISIT ALL THE FILTHY BLM HOLDING PENS WHERE HORSES ARE DYING FOR LACK OF VET CARE AND NUTRITION AND EXERCISE-AND FREEDOM!”
- “THIS SYSTEMATIC ELIMINATION OF THESE HISTORIC ANIMALS IS DISGRACEFUL AND I AM ASHAMED MY GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED THIS CRIME TO OCCUR FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS-AND THAT I HAVE HAD TO PAY FOR THESE BRUTAL AND ILLEGAL ACTS WITH MY TAX MONEY”
Habitat for Horses is always on the lookout for a few great people, both in the office and on our ranches. The work is unique, the animals are special and we want folks who both know and understand the special connection our animals need.
Don’t forget – if you have adopted a horse from Habitat for Horses we want to show you how much we appreciate your support tomorrow at our Manvel Texas Ranch! Find out more! http://www.habitatforhorses.org/share-your-hfh-horse-adoption-story/
