GELDING CLINIC - May 6, 2018

After 10-clock hours, and TWO HUNDRED and THIRTY volunteer hours - 7 stallions and colts were gelded … time to celebrate!

On Sunday, May 6th at NWESC, the ‘village’ came together, once again, to collaboratively face, head on, arguably the worst problem horses, donkeys, ponies, and mules face today: overpopulation, and all the terrible effects that this problem brings with it (abandonment, starvation, neglect, horrific slaughter transport conditions, to name a few) . It is estimated that 140,000 homeless, beautiful equines are sent to slaughter annually. ANNUALLY. Now, due to a group of extraordinary people listed below – veterinarians, licensed vet techs, veterinary students, amazing NWESC volunteers, wonderful horse-families, and rescues - there will be 7 less equines contributing to the issues surrounding overpopulation!

A huge thank you to those who made this amazing day possible:

  • Dr Hannah Mueller (Cedarbrook Veterinary Care)
  • Dr Krystal Grant (Arlington Veterinary Hospital)
  • Dr Eric Renner (Rainland Farm Equine Clinic)
  • 13 Washington State University Veterinary Students (you know who you amazing human beings are!)
  • Jill Gallie, LVT
  • Kari Vaarvik
  • Diane Garwood, Certified Practitioner of Healing Touch for Animals
  • Emily Bullard-Clough
  • Kelli Welling
  • Caroline Morgan
  • Mike Ostrem
  • Meg Brooks and John Barry
  • Hannah Sykes and the rest of the Cedarbrook Farm Staff
  • The NWESC Board of Directors
  • … and especially the DJ&T Foundation for providing us with the funding for this gelding clinic - allowing us to increase the number of castrations we can perform over the next 12 months, and allowing us to help those in our community most in need.

    And finally, a tremendous expression of gratitude to the families and rescues who love their equines enough to know how important it was to take advantage of this gelding clinic opportunity.

    You are all heroes in our book. It has been an honor to know and work with you!

    And if you'd like to support our ongoing efforts to bring the community together to help horses, please join us at HOOFSTOCK - our summer solstice benefit music fest - on Saturday June 23rd!

    With tremendous gratitude,
