CARRIAGE ANIMALS NEED YOUR HELP!

Speak out for those who can't speak for themselves.  

Our supporters help spread the word by proudly displaying banners, bumper stickers, and thermometers calling for the humane treatment of Charleston carriage animals. Join your neighbors in supporting the Charleston Carriage Horse Advocates by making a donation. 


IT TAKES $$ 

We are having an impact.
We are building momentum.
We want to do more.
We need your help.

We hope to continue to use social media, static billboards, digital ads and print ads to get our message out.

2017 Spending

Together, we can effect change in the inhumane working and living conditions of carriage horses.


OUR VOICES ARE BEING HEARD

In our first year, CCHA brought worldwide attention to the plight of these animals through our social media posts. In April 2017, Big John collapsed on Meeting Street. Firemen and carriage company employees had to help Big John get up. A bystander’s video was posted to the CCHA Facebook page. Over 13 Million people viewed his struggles on this video. Eleven national media outlets picked up the story, including USA Today. Our Facebook Friends jumped to 14,000.

After two runaway carriage horse incidents, CCHA sponsored a billboard on I-26 depicting a runaway carriage and the tag line, “Better Safe than Sorry”. It has proven to be a powerful image. We have aired hundreds of thousands of Digital Ads, 300,000 of which ran over the holiday week, citing facts about the current Ordinance and asking potential passengers to consider before they purchase a ticket.

Ask them to:

  • Support the study of the Charleston carriage industry using a peer-reviewed, independent and science-based approach as proposed by Charleston Animal Society
  • Make 95 degrees temporary until the study is complete
  • Reject FOUR readings of 95 degrees before horses are removed from the street. It is cruel, cynical and NOT based on scientific data
  • Measure temperature at street level and in the Market
