Join Us at City Hall to Help Free the Carriage Horses

July 23, 2014 | Horse Carriages / Take Action

Please join Friends of Animals and NYCLASS July 24 at 1 p.m. as we speak directly to New York City Council members outside City Hall about the horse carriage ban. We will be gathering on the steps of City Hall at 1 p.m. to greet the Council members as they walk into the building to attend the Stated Meeting (the bi-monthly meeting where they introduce and vote on legislation). This is a perfect opportunity speak face-to-face with our elected officials and show them how passionate the residents of NYC are about getting horses off the dangerous streets and into waiting sanctuaries.

We are so close to our goal of banning the abusive and dangerous industry, but it is extremely important that animal advocates work together and show City Council members that the people of NYC want the horses off of the streets as soon as possible. The horses have suffered enough.  Please support the horses with your presence and voice and spread the word!

WHEN: July 24, 2014 at 1pm - 3pm

WHERE: City Hall, 260 Broadway, New York, NY 10007

11th Hour for Cloud's Herd,URGENT MESSAGE ABOUT THE PYRORSPlease act now to stop this unnecessary and cruel round up the BLM still plans to move foarrwd on September 1stThe Bureau of Land Management is rounding up and eliminating 12 herds (650 horses) off 1.4 million acres in Nevada right now next they plan to destroy Cloud's herd with a massive removal of 70 horses that would include OLDER HORSES and YOUNG FOALS.Many of the horses you have come to love in the Cloud shows and will meet in the new Cloud show on October 25th will lose their families and their freedom next week. By zeroing out whole herds and reducing others to below genetic viability, the BLM is circumventing the will of Congress. The House just passed the Restoring of American Mustangs (ROAM) act and the Senate will review this bill (now S.1579) when they return from recess in September. Is BLM just trying to do as much irrevocable damage to America's wild horses as they can before Congress can act?This round up will start on September 1st unless we can stop it. Removing 70 horses will destroy this unique little Spanish herd, leaving them well below the bare minimum for genetic viability. The range is in great condition and the horses are healthy. This removal should be stopped. Please do all you can to help!

Why can't people see that horses no longer belong on the busy thorough fares anymore ? It is way too dangerous for the animal and everyone involved. This was appropriate 200 years ago but not now, these animals need their green pastures not long days on hot city streets and dangerous traffic !!!!!
