Thanks to the generosity of Rosalind Schaefer, a new workshop will help equine rescues maximize their impact. Photo by Jilluann Valliere , PhotoartbyJill.com. Giving Spotlight Rosalind Schaefer is a lifelong animal lover and equestrienne, as well as a longtime ASPCA ® donor. When she expressed a desire to fund a project that would specifically help horses, we were thrilled to work with her. With Mrs. Schaefer’s generous support, the ASPCA Equine Fund was able to create a new, day-long workshop program that helps equine rescue organizations improve their own operations and build valuable relationships with others in the field. The Rosalind and Franklyn Schaefer Family Equine Workshop is aimed at helping equine rescue and sanctuary operators improve their skill sets in four critical areas: best practices, coalition-building, board development and fundraising. Last year, representatives of nearly 40 organizations hailing from 10 states participated in the first two workshops in the series. With six more workshops scheduled for 2013 in cities around the country, the ASPCA hopes to impact more than 100 additional organizations this year and continue to build 18 a stronger network of equine welfare professionals. Visit www.aspcapro.org/equine for cities and dates of upcoming workshops. We are sincerely grateful to the Schaefer family for this wonderful opportunity to offer such a valuable professional development program to the equine welfare community.
