Mary-Joe Figueira, a strong horse welfare advocate and supporter of the CHDC, has nominated the CHDC for the Beohringer Ingelheim-Equine Canada Horse Health and Welfare Award which recognizes an individual or organization that has for an extended period of time, contributed directly to the improvement of horse health and welfare.
“Hello everyone! Equine Canada and Boehringer Ingelheim (one of Equine Canada’s sponsors) is giving an award for an individual or organization that has for an extended period of time contributed to the improvement of horse health and welfare.
Here is the nomination form for your perusal. I would like to nominate the CHDC for their extensive work to help protect equines from slaughter in Canada and the export of live equines for slaughter. As an organization I believe they are great candidates for this award. I would appreciate 5 letters (minimum) no more than 3 pages long from those who wish to recommend the CHDC.
Please see the nomination form to help you understand what is necessary in your letter of support for the CHDC. The letters should be formally written and not in point form. I will attach these letters to my nomination form. There is an award of $1,000 which I am sure the CHDC could put to good use for the horses.
If you are interested in submitting a nomination support letter, please email me with your interest to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit all letters by November 30th as the Submission Deadline is Thursday, December 5th, 2013. Thank you!”
