I want to share with you guys an organization that my whole family and I are supporters of. I know it's very nostalgic to think of romantic carraige rides through Central Park in New York City, but the truth is these horses are put in very dangerous situations in NYC traffic. There were more than 15 tragic accidents this past year alone involving these animals. NY CLASS is a non-profit orgnization that is working hard to pass a new law that would retire all the horses to loving homes in green pastures!
If you want to learn more about how these beautiful animals are mistreated, you can go HERE and get more information. The saddest part though is that most of these animals, once unfit to work, are sent to auctions where they are sold to kill-buyers who transport animals to Mexico and Canada where are they inhumanely slaughtered for exported meat. It breaks my heart just thinking about it.
For more info on this organization you can go to their website and find ways to help.
If you'd like to be a part of this movement and help us save the horses, please sign the petition HERE. Join me, Miley, Noah, and my mom along with other celebrities like Lea Michele and Chelsea Handler as we fight for the rights of these animals that can't fight for themselves.
