Brooke Action for working horses and donkeys

Brooke protects and improves the lives of horses, donkeys and mules, which give people in some of the poorest places in the world the opportunity to work their way out of poverty. We deliver lasting change, through training and educating individuals and communities, providing them with the knowledge and skills to care for their animals and improve their own livelihoods.

About us

Since 1934, Brooke has been improving the lives of vulnerable working horses, donkeys and mules and the communities that depend on them. We work where the need is greatest, in some of the most challenging areas of the world; across Africa, Asia, the middle East and Latin America. We relieve immediate suffering and create lasting change by working with individuals, communities, organisations and governments to educate, address common problems, improve services and put policies in place that lead to improved animal welfare.

Around 600 million people rely on over 100 million horses, donkeys and mules working in developing countries. These animals are the forgotten engines powering the world's poorest communities, yet many endure extreme suffering every day as a result of poor handling and husbandry. They suffer ill health, exhaustion, dehydration, disease , injury and malnutrition and for most, there is no access to life-saving treatment or basic medicine. Many die daily from preventable injury or disease.

Brooke has been working towards a world where working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering for over 85 years, and supporters like you make our work possible.
