To make a lasting difference to future generations of animals, our veterinary teams work to strengthen existing healthcare infrastructures.
This Policy exists to ensure that anyone representing Brooke demonstrates good practice in relation to animal welfare, and conducts themselves in a manner commensurate with their role as ambassadors for the organisation and animal welfare advocates.
We assess the welfare of horses, donkeys and mules using scientifically-validated welfare assessment techniques. Our findings are used to prioritise our interventions, evaluate the effectiveness of our programmes and engage with communities.
This manual is a guide to improving the welfare of working animals through collective action, while taking into account the context of different target populations in terms of welfare risks to working animals and the vulnerability of their owners’ livelihoods.
In 2014 Brooke undertook an assessment of several coal mine sites in Choa Saidan Shah in Pakistan, interviewing donkey owners and other mine workers.
As part of our guest lecture series, Brooke have been inviting leading figures within the animal welfare sector to come share their knowledge with Brooke. In this video Harry Eckman from Change for Animals Foundation and a Consultant for IFAW came to Brooke to talk about building animal welfare capacity in difficult situations.
The Brooke Pakistan programme has established a dedicated research resource to work on topics relating to service provision and community engagement, clinical issues and policy-related topics. The team aims to share details of their work at national and international level.
This manual offers insights and practical advice to help understand animal welfare issues that affect horses, donkeys and mules working in developing countries.
