Equine Health and Welfare Alliance, Inc. (EHWA) is a Kentucky-based nonprofit corporation whose goal is to develop and maintain a comprehensive network of stewardship in education, research and support for the basic needs of all equines that allows them a life of dignity. Our goal is to strive for excellence in all of these areas, becoming a national model in the horse industry.
EHWA has a core membership of Veterinarians who understand the importance of humane care for all animals. This basic recognition has not extended to horses, which deserve at least a basic and compassionate approach to their care and well-being.
1. EHWA championed the campaign for the 2010 Kentucky General Assembly to approve House Bill 398 bill in establishing the Kentucky Equine Health & Welfare Council. It is the first in the country to focus solely on efforts to improve the status of the equine via state and legislative channels.
2. EHWA, as a new advocacy for horses and holding a seat on the Council, continues to pursue meaningful positive change by connecting the private sector with the state appointed Council.
3. EHWA has established suggested guidelines for voluntary accreditation of rescue and retirement operations, followed by voluntary accreditation of the operations personnel, thus helping ensure donations to those operations have transparent and legitimate use.
4. EHWA has suggested guidelines for Re-feeding Malnourished Horses.
5. KY Horse Council Vitals Program supported by EHWA.
The EHWA is positioned to provide expertise, in cooperation with other organizations, in developing strategic plans for state regulatory oversight and improvement of existing conditions and shortfalls.
