|Who Are We?
TAWS started as an informal group of vets who wanted to use their specialist
knowledge to improve the long term health, welfare and management of draught and transport
animals. We are now a registered charity with over 200 members. Our work spans
four continents. TAWS is run on a voluntary basis by a committee. Our funds come from
membership fees, donations and fund raising events and also from partner charities which
share our aims.
|Why is TAWS Needed?
- Many of the worlds poorest people are dependent on
horses, oxen, donkeys, camels, mules and buffaloes to cultivate land and transport goods
- Poor feed, lameness, harness sores, parasites and poor
breeding can cause great suffering to the animals and reduce their performance.
- Much is known about animal health, welfare and management
BUT it is poorly disseminated to communities in the third world.
