Who We Are

We are a group of veterinarians and caregivers looking to provide education, leadership and assistance to the working equid and by extension their families. It is estimated that there are 100 million working equids in the developing world. A working equid is defined as a horse, mule or donkey that is used primarily for family income, agriculture and/or transportation. Learn more about our organization and what you can do to help!
