EQUINE WELFARE DATA COLLECTIVE OFFICIALS STARTS DATA COLLECTION
Equine Welfare Data Collective officials starts data collection
The Equine Welfare Data Collective (EWDC) is pleased to officially announce the start of data collection within the equine welfare industry.
The EWDC is collecting national data on equine welfare from transition centers, adoption centers, rescues, sanctuaries, shelters, and other organizations involved in equine welfare. We will measure progress and identify risks and opportunities within the industry, so organizations like yours can develop impactful and sustainable programs.
The success of the EWDC depends on a robust contribution of data from all organizations within the industry. The first round of data collection will focus on the population of intakes and outcomes within the United States. Online surveys will be distributed to EWDC affiliate organizations beginning immediately.
How does your organization become an affiliate? Affiliates must commit to responding to surveys on a quarterly basis. Participation in the EWDC is free, and all results will remain anonymous. Organizations that contribute data will be the first to receive the results and will be given an EWDC badge for their website to publicly demonstrate their commitment to our mission.
Granting organizations such as the Unwanted Horse Coalition (UHC), The Right Horse Initiative (TRH), American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation (AAEPF), and American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) will be looking for your contribution to the EWDC as part of their funding considerations.
Your data contribution will provide more accurate study results to help you understand and communicate the scope of the issues you are tackling, better serve your community, and become a benchmark among industry leaders.
To become an affiliate or for more information, please contact Emily Stearns, EWDC program manager, at EWDC@HorseCouncil.Org.
