Goal: 30,000 Progress: 23,685
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

Sure, they're beautiful animals and a sight to be seen. But New York City's carriage horses don't live the plush and lavish lifestyles their appearances might suggest. Rather, carriage horses spend their lives on rough city streets pulling heavy loads among cars and other vehicles. They are constantly working, unable to enjoy open pastures and graze in nature.

Something is wrong with this picture. Horses don't belong in cities acting as taxi cabs and entertainment for humans. They are large, movement-oriented animals who need the freedom of fields and pastures to graze, run, and play.

The carriage industry is outdated and causing unnecessary harm to these beautiful creatures. Sign the petition asking New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg to stand up for the safety and health of horses and outlaw the horse carriage industry.

Dear Mayor Bloomberg:

I am quite honestly appalled that the horse carriage industry has been allowed to continue as long as it has. With all of the evidence that shows the physical damage horses sustain during careers as carriage horses, it's puzzling why the practice hasn't been outlawed altogether.

You can't possibly think that forcing a horse to haul heavy carriages for hours upon hours, seven days a week, is healthy. You can't possibly concede that not allowing the horses to graze free in pastures with other horses promotes well being. And you can't possibly be under the impression that inhaling toxic fumes from standing among vehicles all day is beneficial to the horses.

If you're aware of these implications, why do you continue to allow these horses to be treated like slaves? Please see to it that the horses of New York City are rescued and cared for in the ways they are meant to be treated. Do your part for the horses and outlaw the carriage industry once and for all.
