UHC Searchable Resource Database
It’s full steam ahead for the UHC Searchable Resource Database, with phase one almost complete!
The UHC has been busy on all fronts as we continue auditing our extensive Master Contact List. For those not aware, the UHC Master Contact List contains a database of all known Rescues, Sanctuaries, Municipal groups, State Horse Councils, State Extension Specialists, 4H Groups, State Veterinarians, and various other groups who all play a role in potentially providing any Resource that may assist horses at-risk or in transition.
Once the current list is audited (this includes removing those 501c3s who no longer exist or have had their exemption revoked, updating contact information, etc) we will be adding in additional contacts that may not be on the current list.
When this is completed, we will be contacting everyone on the list to ask a series of questions pertaining to what resources they are able to, or potentially able to provide horses at-risk or in transition. This information will be compiled in a way so that we can create a National Searchable Database on our website. For example, utilizing this information, we will be able to provide a list of any known organizations who provide safety net programs; hay bank, feed, veterinary, castration, or castration assistance Nationwide. (This is just a short sample of some of the Resources available.) It will also include Resources such as grants available, and even training opportunities for Rescues. The potential for this database is limitless, and its ability to help horses at-risk or in transition is sorely needed. We are very excited to see this project progress!
