Singer Miley Cyrus has devoted many tweets to canine adoption, raising awareness and inspiring others to adopt. The young star is now speaking up, along with her mother, for New York City carriage horses.

Miley tweeted, “NYC is just 761 signatures shy of 100,000 petition goal to #FreeTheHorsesNYC! Sign @NYCLASS petition at http://StopHorseAbuse.com

Those who doubt the power of a celebrity tweet haven’t witnessed its effects firsthand. In this case, the number of signatures on the petition rose to 103,266, certainly more than just the 761 signatures that were needed to get over the hundred thousand mark.

Tish Cyrus wrote, “I cannot believe this! I keep watching the numbers grow on the website! This is incredible! WOW #stophorseabuse.com”. And Miley added, “You all made my mama and all the horses so happy 🙂 my fans really do come in handy xx”.

NYCLASS is gathering signatures to support the NYC Council bill, Intro 86A, which would retire working carriage horses and replace them with electric vintage-replica tour cars. As the petition states, “Horses do not belong in a congested, urban setting where they constantly breathe exhaust in dangerous traffic. There have been more than 18 accidents in the past two years. The horses live in tiny stable stalls, with no access to green pastures.”

If you’d like to join the Cyruses as well as other celebrity activists like Leah Michele, Pink and Pamela Anderson who have all spoken out against horse-drawn carriages, head over to the petition to sign.
