Animal cruelty is never in style, and horse carriages are so 1814. A local designer is planning to parade models around in horse carriages on a "runway" in the middle of dangerous city traffic. Please join us for a peaceful protest. RSVP BELOW.
Join NYCLASS to help petition City Council! We want to show Bronx Council Members how passionate humane voters are about finally banning the horse drawn carriages.
We are so close to our goal, but it is extremely important that animal advocates work together and show our elected officials that the people of NYC want the horses off of the streets as soon as possible.
We will be meeting Thursday, September 4th in front of a Bank of America at 2198 White Plains Rd in the Bronx to speak with fellow animal lovers about the issue.
Please RSVP below.
Join us for collecting petition signatures for the City Council at Adoptapalooza!
Join us at the courthouse for the criminal trial of abusive carriage driver Saverio Colarusso, who was arrested on December 18, 2013 for forcing his horse, Blondie, to work while severely injured for four days before he was caught.
We will picket outside the courthouse, and then head inside together to watch the proceedings. Please wear your carriage horse t-shirts or buttons if you have one. (If not, we'll have extra.)
March with us! Please check back for more details shortly.
