Who we are
We are an international animal welfare organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world’s poorest communities. We provide treatment, training and programmes around animal health and well-being operating across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
What we do – A world in which working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering
To make this vision a reality, the Brooke delivers practical programmes and provides support, advice and infrastructure to its global network of employees, partners and supporters.
Brooke staff and staff employed by Brooke-funded affiliates and partners provide veterinary and animal health services in order to relieve the suffering of working horses, donkeys and mules.
Thousands of trainings take place every year so that community animal health workers can treat working horses, donkeys and mules locally.
We also undertake valuable, practical research to support our evidence-based approach and help communities to better help their own horses, donkeys and mules, by building skills.
On a global scale, we also seek to influence governments and other institutions to raise the profile of working equine animals on the policy and development agendas.
In addition we lead from the front, in the field of animal welfare, ensuring our rigorous standards and guidelines are applied in all the areas where we work.
