Love to the Rescue – An Equine Welfare Statistic Round-Up
On February 14th, 2022 the American Horse Council hosted the webinar “Love to the Rescue – An Equine Statistic Round-Up”.
Managing at-risk and transitioning equines carries many different logistical needs compared to smaller animals like dogs and cats.
Emily Stearns, MSc, Program Manager for the Equine Welfare Data Collective (EWDC), explored current data on equine and companion animal welfare, logistical differences between managing difference species, and how equine welfare fits into the big picture of trending animal sheltering statistics within the United States. Included in the presentation was a Q&A panel discussion with Ashley Harkins, Program Director of the United Horse Coalition (UHC) and Ed Jamison, CEO for Operation Kindness in Dallas, Texas and Board of Director VP for the National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA).
