FOUR PAWS helping working horses in Petra, Jordan: Review and Preview 2016
Last year, FOUR PAWS started a new cooperation to improve the lives of working horses in Petra, Jordan. During three interventions, we were able to help many horses and treat other animals with the help of local veterinarians. Furthermore, we have now finished building new stables for the working horses and donkeys.
In addition, we organised a two-day workshop, during which a recognised horse expert shared his profound knowledge with the owners of the animals. The owners were told how to treat their horses and also told how to prevent illness and injury.
The summer in Petra is incredibly hot and we are glad the new stables have been built in time to provide much needed shelter to the horses and donkeys. We will continue our cooperation with local veterinarians and organise another workshop to achieve long-term improvements for the working horses and donkeys in Petra.
