Dr. Terry Wollen is director of Animal Well-Being and staff veterinarian of Heifer International, a giving organization that places livestock into communities in need. Heifer works with communities to train them to make best use of the animals. Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Heifer’s strategy is to “pass on the gift.” As people share their animals’ offspring with others – along with their knowledge, resources, and skills – an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe. Heifer has been using this simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief for over 60 years. Today, millions of families in 128 countries have been given the gifts of self-reliance and hope.
