Call-in Days to Ban Horse Drawn Carriages
in NYC: Feb. 19 - 21

1.  From February 19-21, please make a brief polite phone call to your New York City council member and urge him or her to support council member Tony Avella's ban on horse drawn carriages (Intro. 658). Click here to look up your city council member and the phone number. Remember to be polite and professional. When you call, you can say:

"Hello, my name is [your name] and I'm calling from [your town] to ask [your councilman] to support Councilman Tony Avella's legislation to ban horse-drawn carriages in New York City. Horses do not belong on the city's crowded, congested streets and forcing them to endure these dangerous and inhumane conditions is a risk to horses, pedestrians, motorists and tourists alike. Thank you."

For an additional measure, you can also call Speaker Christine Quinn's office at (212) 564-7757 to leave a message for her. Ask that she re-consider her position on horse-drawn carriages and join animal groups such as the League of Humane Voters and the ASPCA in supporting Intro 658 to ban horse-drawn carriages.

2.  Please encourage friends and family to to the same.

3.  If you live outside of NYC, send a polite, brief message to Mayor Bloomberg online stating your full support of the bill. Horse drawn carriages are now a hindrance to tourism, not an attraction.
