The Mule Welfare UK charity is committed to inspire people to create a better everyday life for mules in the UK.

Our Mission

Mule Welfare Uk is a charity set up to inspire people to create a better every day life for mules in the UK. We raise funds and use them responsibly to fulfil our aims – Respect for Mules.

Supporting owners

The Trustees are committed to encouraging the best care of mules by their owners and carers, and to facilitate the sharing of best practise methods within the community.

Education

The charity aims to be an information hub for mule health and welfare in order to advance knowledge, raise awareness, increase respect and promote humane behaviour towards mules.

Increasing awareness

We intend to promote the practical education and emotional benefits of mules to society. By applauding success and acknowledging people and organisations we will encourage mule ownership.
