Introducing our summer campaign, The Donkey Load! The air is thick with choking dust. The summer heat--well over 100 degrees--is searing. In the miserable conditions of India’s brick kilns, working horses, donkeys and mules are pushed to their physical limits day after day, hauling massive loads on their backs from dawn until dusk. This punishing existence is the everyday reality for thousands of working animals throughout the developing world. Many of them work with life-threatening injuries and suffer from poor nutrition and dehydration. The future is grim for these animals, as their owners are also struggling to make a living in these brutal working conditions. Many owners simply don’t have the resources to care properly for their animals. Also learn about our winter season, fundraisers and upcoming events!


Record Year for Brooke USA’s Sunset Polo™ & White Party

Brooke USA's Sunset Polo™ & White Party raised over $350,000 for working equines and the people who depend on them in the world’s poorest communities. More than 1,000 people joined together for the signature event and exceeded funds raised from all previous years.
