Equine Welfare Coalition
Why do horses and other equine need to suffer or die before help arrives? What can you do when a neighbor's horse is being neglected or abused? These and other questions sparked the formation of Equine Welfare Coalition. (E.W.C.)
E.W.C. is a non-profit organization created to rescue abused and neglected equine. Our members are dedicated to the following principals: Facilitate the rescue of & the temporary care of equines, including feeding, medical care, & placement in foster care, according to our articles & bylaws. We also promote the ideals of education related to the humane use & care of equines. We can offer emergency assistance for equines during regional disasters.
E.W.C. was formally organized in April, 2000. Donations and membership fees are used exclusively to assist our horses. We have rescued three horses, Buddy, Cheyenne and Buddy's friend. All three horses were brought back to health and have been placed in good homes. We are currently investigating two other situations where horses are being severely neglected.
E.W.C. meets once a month on the last Monday of the month at the Spokane County Extension Education Center, 222 N. Havana, Spokane, WA 99202. Meetings begin at 6:45 p.m.
E.W.C.'s work for equine is funded solely by membership fees and donations. Annual membership fees are $15.00 for individuals and $25.00 for the entire family. Other organizations are welcome to join for a fee of $15.00. We assist equines where needed in all of the eastern Washington counties.
