We are an international animal welfare organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world's poorest communities. We provide treatment, training and programmes around animal health and wellbeing, operating across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
From as little as £3 a month or give a one off payment.
What happens when despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of local stakeholders, an animal’s illness, injury or overall condition means they have a poor outlook for a fit and pain free working life?
When working animals become sick or injured, traditional treatments passed down through generations are often used. Some are very good for the animals – such as cleaning a wound with salt water but there are many other practices that do more harm than good.
No real access to education, no other opportunities for livelihoods - these are families living in a harsh environment and their donkeys, their silent helpers, are critical and core to all these activities.
