Welcome to Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary and animal centre provides care and rehabilitation for 200 horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, sheep and cats in the heart of the Essex countryside.

It costs in excess of £400,000 to run the Sanctuary every year, which is funded solely by donations, and with your help we can give these animals the best possible care so they can eventually be re-homed or enjoy a home for life at the Sanctuary.

Please browse our website and learn about our work, our animals and the many other facets of life in a busy Animal Sanctuary.

Give an everlasting Gift of love to our horses

Every year the Sanctuary continues to provide care for the 200 plus animals in their care, educate people through school visits and through their Elderly Horse Care Project. They also provide hay and food in the winter months and water in the summer months to the many horses who are not lucky enough to come in to the Sanctuary.

By remembering Remus in your will you can help us continue to provide this care to ill-treated innocent horses and donkeys for many years to come
