The HSI Working Equine Welfare program helps to address these problems, bringing veterinary care, training for local veterinarians and veterinary students, and education for horse owners to remote communities. We promote the economic benefits of better care, engaging the community on many levels. Even children (future horse owners) are included through interactive humane education classes in the local schools conducted by an HSI staff member.
Our partner in this initiative is The Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA), an organization for veterinary professionals who want to engage in direct care programs for animals in need and educate the public and others in the profession about animal welfare issues.
