Help us, help you! Complete the EWDC Survey today:

Here is what you’ll need to complete the survey today:

  1. Your organization’s EIN Number. This will be used for internal record keeping purposes as an identifier to ensure there are no duplicate data submissions. Your EIN (and any other identifying information you provide) will never be shared.
  2. Current records including intake and outcome populations from January 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019. We will be collecting data by category (e.g. number of intakes via owner surrender, agency transfer, law enforcement confiscation, etc.) so it will be important to make sure you have access to your organization’s complete records.

If you have never contributed data to the EWDC before you will also need intake and outcome populations from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. We will be collecting aggregate data including total intakes, total adoptions, and total euthanasias for the 2017 year.


To request a copy of your submitted data or proof of participation:

  • Contact us at EWDC@HorseCouncil.Org and include “EWDC Report Request” in the subject line.
  • We will be happy to provide you with a certified letter confirming your data submission along with a copy of the data you have submitted
  • You can request this copy in either PDF or .xls format – just specify in your e-mail.
  • If the person requesting the report is not who submitted the data initially, please copy the original submitter in your request so they can give approval for us to release the data to you.


We understand your organization is sharing sensitive data with the EWDC. We will never share any information without your explicit permission. Your data will remain anonymous when analyzed. Any identifying records you submit with this survey today will be used for verification purposes only.

Owning Responsibly:

The United Horse Coalition is a broad alliance of equine organizations that have joined together under the American Horse Council to educate the horse industry about the problem of horses at-risk or in transition . We seek to provide information for existing and prospective owners, breeders, sellers, and horse organizations regarding the long-term responsibilities of owning and caring for horses, as well as focusing on the opportunities available for these horses.

Our Mission:

Through industry collaboration, the UHC promotes education and options for at-risk and transitioning horses.
