About the Charity

At EQUAL, we rescue animals, who go on to rescue us. We adopt unwanted animals and retrain them into therapy animals to develop emotional resilience in youth, people with special needs, elderly with dementia, and families in need.

We do this through activities that develop in them skills such as managing impulsivity, empathy, responsibility, respect, focus, and confidence.

This helps youth stay in school, people with special needs transition to jobs, elderly with dementia enhance their well-being, and families in need reconcile.

Two research studies by IMH show that our work leads to a 70% improvement in social-emotional skills and is associated with improvement in academic grades.

Our staff, who comprise former MOE teachers, social workers, counsellors and retired jockeys serve 2,000 beneficiaries each year from schools, nursing homes, children's homes and other social service organisations.

We are expanding our services by bringing therapy horses into unlikely places in urbanised Singapore, such as nursing homes, schools and HDB estates, as well as starting a cat therapy service.

We are a registered charity and Institute of Public Character (IPC). Donations above $50 are tax deductible at 250%.
