Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: To improve the welfare of equines in South Africa through education and assistance

Results: We have so far this year carried out one outreach clinic per month in townships and rural areas, where the owners are 99% unemployed, and have had no formal or animal welfare education. These animals are vital to their owners making a living. There is a tremendous improvement in the condition of the animals where we have worked.

Target demographics: areas where there are large numbers of working horses and donkeys that have never had the benefit of education or welfare assistance

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 4000 horses and donkeys

Geographic areas served: the larger part of South Africa

Programs: Township working horse clinics Donkey Clinics Inspectorate - equine welfare

You have to go to Highveld to see for yourself, even though the horses/donkeys/ponies have come from neglect, or a bad situation it is a very peacefull peace to be. The work they do and the dedication they have is amazing!!
