The February 14th webinar will explore the current data on equine welfare.

Managing at-risk and transitioning equines carries many different logistical needs compared to small animals like dogs and cats. This webinar will explore trends in welfare statistics related to these differing needs and how that shapes at-risk equine programming across the country. Included in this discussion will be panelists from equine welfare and companion animal sheltering organizations to share their experiences. A brief Q&A period for the panel will conclude the discussion.

The Equine Welfare Data Collective is a program of the United Horse Coalition and the American Horse Council Foundation. The mission of the EWDC is to collect, analyze, and report data on at-risk and transitioning equines within the United States and the organizations working hard to support them.
