Scotland has piloted a new website to help horse owners with end-of-life decisions. The Equine End of Life Service is a nonprofit organization that provides options for euthanasia, removal and disposal.
Created by the National Fallen Stock Company, the goal of the site is to provide simple, easy-to-understand information, removing some of the stress associated with losing a horse. The staff strives to give everyone involved in the decision making respect, offering a more-human approach. The online service has a network of independent providers of both euthanasia and collection companies, all of which abide by rigorous biosecurity and welfare standards.
The website platform can also assist with quotes, logistics and payment. Charities such as World Horse Welfare, Blue Cross and the Donkey Sanctuary are supportive of the service. The company aims to roll out service to the rest of the UK this summer.
