Atlanta Carriage Horse Advocates has been documenting abuse, neglect and cruelty towards the Atlanta carriage horses for the past two years. While there are laws in place, they are not enforced. We need you to help bring awareness to this situation.

As a concerned animal advocate, the health, safety and humane treatment of these horses is a serious concern. But even if you personally don't care about the horse drawn carriages on the streets of Atlanta, even if you don't care about the cruelty and neglect of the horses, even if for you animals in general are not very important, or if compassion isn't what you're about... I would hope that you would at least be concerned by the fact that the Atlanta Police Department and the other government officials responsible for doing a job, have displayed a complete lack of knowledge, as well as a disturbing lack of concern along with a blatant refusal to administer the laws that are intended to monitor, regulate, and ensure the safety of all aspects of the horses that are used in the horse drawn carriage industry in Atlanta.
We ask that you take measures to insure the law in regards to the horses, their living conditions and their working conditions, are enforced. If the laws cannot be enforced, then the horse drawn carriages in Atlanta should be shut down.
