2016 has been a landmark year for Brooke, meeting its ambitious goal, set almost six years ago, of reaching two million working horses, donkeys and mules in a single year, more than any other organisation.
To help governments implement the OIE standards, technical experts from Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys, The Donkey Sanctuary, The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad (SPANA) and World Horse Welfare will have a joint poster displayed at the 4th OIE Global Conference on Animal Welfare in Mexico.
Brooke is proud to have partnered with Hope and Glory to make your cuppa count.

For the first time, the contributions of working livestock including horses, donkeys and mules to food security and nutrition, has been officially recognised by the UN in livestock recommendations formally endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) on Monday 17 October 2016 in Rome.
