New Role Will Work with Coalition Members to Promote Equine Welfare and Protection
(Jan. 17, 2012) — The Homes for Horses Coalition, a resource and representative voice of the nation’s horse rescue and sanctuary community, announced the appointment of Cindy Gendron as the program’s new coordinator. The coalition was formed in 2007 by The Humane Society of the United States, the Animal Welfare Institute and the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to serve as a recognized national network of experts in equine care and government policy affecting equines.
“This new, dedicated position will ensure the success of the Homes for Horses Coalition in helping rescue groups rehome the nation’s at-risk horse population and ending horse slaughter and other forms of equine abuse,” said Keith Dane, director of equine protection for The HSUS. “The Humane Society of the United States is delighted that Cindy will be leading the coalition’s efforts to promote growth, collaboration and professionalism in the equine rescue community.”
