Student improving horse rescue with thesis

March 30, 2011

This story just made my day. :) Jacie Cupertino, a student at Cazenovia College in NY, is about to complete her thesis, titled Rescue Me! A Collective Resource for Equine Rescue Facilities to Enhance Their Business Operations.

The project focuses on public perception of equine rescue facilities, and how rescues can become more successful with simple changes that:

  • enhance their perceived legitimacy
  • increase the public’s willingness to donate resources, and
  • improve the quality of the facility’s operations.

I think this approach is sheer brilliance on Jacie’s part, and I can’t wait to read her thesis when it’s published next month!
