As an organization dedicated to the welfare of the working cart horses, CHPA has been tirelessly working to provide vet care and treatment to sick and injured cart horses. The past six months have been particularly challenging, with our vet bills soaring over R600,000! We understand the significance of this expense, so we are happy to provide detailed invoices upon request.
Last year CHPA dealt with an astonishing 476 veterinary cases and tirelessly administered 1 287 treatments. Unfortunately, this year hasn’t shown any signs of improvement. The demand for our services remains high, highlighting the pressing need for continued support.
