The Brooke is an international animal welfare organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world’s poorest communities.
There are around 100 million working horses, donkeys and mules across the world and during the course of their lives, it is estimated that more than half of these animals suffer from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition as a result of excessive workloads and limited animal health services. This results in suffering for the animals and insecure livelihoods for the people relying on them. These problems can be avoided.
The Brooke provides veterinary treatment and programmes around animal health and wellbeing, across Africa, Asia and Latin America. This year, we will reach more than 1.5 million working horses, donkeys and mules, benefiting around seven million of the world’s poorest people, who rely on these animals to earn a basic living.
