Q. What will happen to the NYC carriage horses horses if they are phased out and replaced with electric cars?
A. The legislation we advocate for, Intro 86A, would require that the NYC carriage horse owners turn over their horses to an approved rescue, sanctuary or private farm. NYCLASS, in coordination with the ASPCA, will ensure that every single NYC carriage horse is matched with a loving forever home -- just like our rescued carriage horse, Chance. We are maintaining a long list of prospective adopters.
Right now, carriage horses have no legal protections once their careers are over -- and many have been found on the auction block. In fact, 60-70 carriage horses disappear off of city rolls every year -- with no record of where they ended up.
The law we are pushing for would make sure that no horse ends up at a slaughter plant.
Q. I would like to donate via check instead of on the website. Where should I mail a donation?
