The USA’s Unwanted Horse Coalition (UHC) has launched a new mobile-friendly website with everything visitors need to know about the group and its work.
A feature new to the site is a page dedicated exclusively to Operation Gelding, which includes information on the program, how to host a clinic, clinic forms (including a live funding application that can be filled out from the website and submitted directly to the UHC director), and a current clinic schedule.
On the new website all UHC educational brochures and handbooks are available for download and for print. These include books that can be bought through the UHC, with proceeds going to Operation Gelding. Users will also have access to UHC press releases, as well as new editions of the Media Roundup — a monthly news summary containing articles that detail what organizations in the community are doing to understand and help solve the unwanted horse problem.
Like the old site, the new website offers links to additional resources such as feed and haybanks, gelding and health care voucher programs, and grant-making organizations.
One notable change to the site is that the UHC will no longer be providing listings to individual equine rescue and retirement facilities. Instead, the site provides links to A Home for Every Horse, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, and the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries — all organizations which list several hundred accredited equine care facilities on their own websites.
