Sustainable future for Remus Horse Sanctuary – Dream or Reality?
With your help we believe that we can guarantee a sustainable future for Remus Horse Sanctuary and that together, we can make a difference.
Could you contribute just £5 a month to Remus?
We’ve estimated that if all 1,512 of our Facebook ‘Likers’ contributed just £5 a month we would receive £7,560 per month, which you may be surprised to hear is far, far in excess of our present situation! It sounds like a lot of money, but with 200+ animals at Remus to feed, house and keep warm, the bills soon mount up. Take a look at our monthly bills below:
- Each month our bill for hay alone is £5,000!
- The Farrier visits weekly and sometimes more and his bill is £1,200 a month
- The routine medicine bill from the Vets, without their time and any operations, is approximately £3,000 per month!
- Electricity costs us £1,500 each quarter
- Each year it costs £350 to shear our flock of sheep
- Water costs us £1,200 per quarter
We’ve put the monthly costs above into a simple pie chart for you to view above.
Then there is feed, worming, horse passports, microchipping, rent, insurances, printing, postage, vehicle costs, legal services, an accountant, staff wages… the list is almost, but thankfully not quite endless, but all of this makes up the £440,000 it takes to maintain and run the Sanctuary each year!
Your monthly donation would offer security and a sustainable future for Remus Horse Sanctuary, and help us address the escalating horse welfare crisis in this country. Together we believe we can make a difference! Security to us means we can offer homes for new animals, buy more food and rugs during the wintertime to help those animals in need, and pay our staff and suppliers regularly – again something which just can’t happen at present.
If you can and would like to create a monthly donation, whether £1, £5, £10 or £50, you can do so here, just click on the button ‘Make a Monthly Donation’.
