Roger holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Framingham State College. He brought his horse and farm animal handling skills to the MSPCA 34 years ago. In 1994, Roger played a role in developing the original Rescue Glide (FEI inspected and approved equipment designed to move downed horse/large animals), which launched the current Equine Ambulance Program based out of the MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Methuen, MA. Roger has attended numerous workshops on large animal rescue and is the co-leader of the large animal search and rescue for the State of Massachusetts Animal Response Teams. In his role of Manager of Equine Rescue and Training for the MSPCA Equine Ambulance Program, Roger responds to horse emergencies throughout New England (through an on-call system for veterinarians), trains groups on handling equine emergencies and travels nationally to provide ambulance service for Sport Horse events. Roger and the MSPCA ambulance staff also help groups across the country start their own equine ambulances, using equipment designed and used by the MSPCA. Roger has helped the program reach its goal of teaching groups throughout the country in emergency rescue techniques to help horses in need. Roger received the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association 2010 Merit Award for his work with the Equine Ambulance Program. In the past Twenty years, the MSPCA Equine Ambulance Program has helped over 300 horses, assisted in launching nearly 30 additional ambulances and trained an estimated 6,000 animal professionals in emergency equine rescue techniques and transport. The MSPCA Rescue Glide is used at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center, University of Ontario at Guelph, University of Minnesota, Virginia Tech and Tufts University Hospital for Large Animals, to name a few. Among those trained include the New York City Mounted Police Unit, Aiken South Carolina Safety and Rescue Group, as well as numerous local Fire and Rescue Groups, Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians. Locally, Roger’s demonstrations and talks have been seen at Tufts Animal Expo, Rochester Equine Clinic and Equine Affaire.
