Haw Creek Animal Hospital will join EquiSeq (and equine genomics company co-founder by a Bob Sinclair with Heather Sinclair on the board of directors) in a charity fundraising effort for Wilderwood Equine Therapy and Rescue. We stage a Labor Day Charity fundraiser every year, and this year we will donate to Wilderwood from Labor Day sales. EquiSeq will also donate 10% of sales for the entire month of September 2021 to Wilderwood.
Wilderwood’s equine-assisted programs are an innovative and integrative approach designed for autistic adults and children (aged 8 and up) to strengthen authentic self-perception, self-possibility, and self-realization through mind/body interoceptive and somatic understanding combined with the philosophy of Hautism, which embraces and celebrates the innate connection between horses and autistic people.
Wilderwood also rescues unwanted horses, provides them a lifetime loving home, and educates the community about horses and autism.
EquiSeq became aware of Wilderwood when the charity agreed to adopt Lady Faith, a horse that has been part of EquiSeq's research program for several years.
Haw Creek Animal Hospital will be open regular hours on Labor day seeing a mixture of regularly scheduled appointments and urgent visits.
Anyone wishing to donate to Wilderwood can reach out directly. More about Wilderwood can be found on their website at https://wilderwoodequinetherapy.org/
