There’s a reason Lea Michele (Rachel) is known for her charitable ways ― girlfriend talks the talk and walks the walk! Over the past few days, Lea has been busy tweetin’ out against animal cruelty at the hands of NYC horse and carriage rides, even going so far as to saying she could be planning holidays elsewhere if the trend continues!

“New York, u know how much I love you. But if I see another horse & carriage struggling in this winter weather I may not be able 2 be here,” she wrote on December 28.

And this isn’t the first time Lea’s lent her voice to the cause. Last year she starred in a PETA campaign against the practices, saying, “Imagine for a moment that you're forced to do hard physical labor all day, seven days a week ― whether it's sweltering hot or freezing cold outside. At the end of the day, instead of relaxing on [an] easy chair or sleeping in a comfortable bed, you are locked in a tiny closet all night long.”

We certainly hope this doesn’t have to be Lea’s last holiday in the city! She seems to (otherwise) be having so much fun!

Lea is encouraging folks who support the cause to get on Twitter and direct their voices to Mayor Bloomberg to put an end to it once and for all. Keep up on her efforts (and join the convo, if you so wish!) at her Twitter page.
