want to help keep horse slaughter humane in the US

Hello Ms. Slade- I would like somehow to help with keeping the slaughter of horses on US soil humane, as would we all, (those who agree with slaughter in the first place). Not only is important to alleviate the suffering of horses in the slaughter pens, but it starts at the auction site. Also, I believe it is important for people to treat animals humanely. How a person treats an animal will effect his/her outlook on life, in general. I am sure slaughter jobs pay little, and attract younger people, or people with little choice for job selection. Killing horses, day after day, could have a detrimental and traumatic effect on someone's psyche. (I could petition, door to door? maybe- would that help?)
