CAA is an all volunteer, grassroots animal advocacy organization. Nobody gets paid, there are no overhead costs and we spend very little money, but we are making a big impact.

Chicago's law states that carriage horses cannot work if the air temperature is 90 degrees F or greater (taken from the temperature at Northerly Island) yet CAA has documented many horses being worked when it's too hot.
