Every day, millions of working horses and donkeys face harsh conditions and back-breaking labour, without any possibility of veterinary care. In developing nations, lack of owner knowledge and veterinary resources for working animals often make even small injuries death sentences. This state of affairs is bad for the animals and the families that depend on them to survive. We at the London-based charity Brooke Hospital for Animals are committed to offering hope and better quality of life to these hard-working equines.
For 600 million people in some of the poorest places in the world, over 100 million of these animals are the backbone of their communities and the best means of making a living. Without healthy working horses, donkeys and mules, they wouldn’t be able to put food on their tables, send their children to school or build better futures for themselves and their families. However, these animals can often suffer from disease, malnutrition and overwork.
Our aim is to equip local people and governments with the knowledge and skills to give horses, donkeys and mules better lives. From providing vital care information to horse owners to improving veterinary hospitals in countries like India, we and our supporters improve animal welfare and communities. To date, we have reached 1.8 million horses, donkeys and mules around the globe.
