Brennan Equine Welfare Fund

Brennan Equine Welfare Fund is a fund-raising, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Grants from Brennan
Equine Welfare Fund are used to serve equine rescue shelters across the country which provide dignity to
final years of aged, injured, abused, starved and slaughter-bound horses, as well as those used in medical
experimentation. This fund supports registered, 501(c)(3) organizations that specialize in retirement and
rehabilitation services and offer a peaceful and permanent sanctuary for these beautiful animals. Shelters
which offer carefully scrutinized adoption or re-placement services are also supported.

Established in 2000 by Linda S Pavey, Brennan Equine Welfare Fund carries on the memory of her equine
companion, Brennan (J.B.'s Hero), an off-the-track Thoroughbred

Brennan Equine Welfare Fund is a non-breed, non-discipline specific organization believing that all horses,
regardless of their breeding, training, age or stature in life, are deserving of respect and dignity.

            Malcolm, the Handsome Ex-Racehorse, Finds a Home!

Malcolm, abandoned at auction, was accepted by BEWF grantee Friends of Ferdinand, Inc. when found skinny,
scared, & nursing a broken pelvis.

FFI took him in after he was discovered abandoned at an auction house in Indiana in late 2014. Frightened and
unstable, Malcolm had a body score of 2-2.5 (on a scale of 1-9), evidence of a previous broken pelvic wing, an
infection in his right fetlock, a respiratory illness, and an inability to right himself without human assistance due
to severe muscular atrophy. FFI and their veterinarian doubted Malcolm would bounce back, but through
dedication, perseverance and Malcolm’s will, Malcolm has now gained proper weight back, re-built muscle
through electro-magnetic stimulation, and re-gained his strength after graduating to full turnout.

A few months ago, he moved to FFI's training stable to see how his pelvis would hold up. Would he be able to
stay sound? Malcolm continued to pass every test with flying colors. The handsome gelding with his curious
face, always ready to meet new people, was finally ready to start meeting potential adopters.

In April, Malcolm went out on trial. FFI and BEWF are happy to announce that Kate & Penelope, a mother &
daughter duo, have made their adoption of Malcolm official. That's right! After a year & 6 months, Malcolm has
found his people.

Brennan Equine Welfare Fund was happy to take part in his recovery through grant funding to FFI for Malcolm's
