Remus Horse Sanctuary are currently running two appeals. Please scroll down to find out more.
Feed a Tethered Horse this Winter
Please help us to feed the many tethered horses across the South of England.
A tethered horse will quickly run out of grazing within the circumference of its restraint and often have no water. We receive telephone calls and messages from members of the public 365 days of the year, reporting horses, ponies and donkeys that are in distress, tethered, malnourished, diseased and worse still, dead. We do everything that we can to help them with food and water and will mount rescue operations for the more severe cases.
However, our revenue has been severely affected by Covid-19 and we need your help to buy the necessary feed and hay – by far our biggest expense at the charity as you can imagine.
Founder Sue Burton says, “equines may be able to live out in all weathers, but this is based on the natural native pony who is loose and can walk to keep warm, walk to find shelter, and trickle feed throughout the day. All of these rights are denied an animal that is tethered.”
Please make your donation online here or, you can purchase feed and enrichment directly on our website. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can send a cheque to the charity directly, full details on our website here.
Cry for Help
The horse welfare crisis in this country continues to escalate and Remus is on its knees financially,we literally exist from one day to the next. This is particularly so during the Coronavirus outbreak as we have had to cancel all of our fundraising and events.
Remus are desperate for funds and asking animal lovers everywhere to dig deep to make a donation to help continue the work of the Sanctuary and to help ease and eventually stop the daily suffering.
At present there are hundreds of horses and ponies around the country that are suffering daily. And sadly every day is a day nearer to death. Remus can and does help but, without serious financial assistance, will be forced to close.
Founder Sue said, “Normally at this time of year welfare issues ease and our costs go down giving us a chance to recoup much needed funds for the winter. However, this year there has been so many horses that have needed our help that it has proved impossible”.
Remus needs additional financial support to help rescue many more animals and continue to provide lifetime care for our existing 200+ animals.
