Remus In The Community
Whilst we are an animal welfare charity, we also extend our work into the wider community and actively work with some of our animals to enhance the lives of specific sections of the community, such as taking our ponies out to visit care homes for the elderly and to schools to show young people how to respect and care for our animal companions.
Remus is an accredited organisation offering work placements to young people and also as a Duke of Edinburgh Award training venue.
As part of our work in the community we can visit with our power point audio visual presentation, giving talks to many different types of groups. We are also a popular venue giving tours and talks for deaf/blind and disabled groups.
From October to March we run a Winter Action Line, where we actively encourage the public to contact us if they have any concerns about any equines. Very often people will pass an animal for days and weeks thinking ‘I wonder if that is a problem or am I just over reacting?’ – we say if you have any concerns, don’t worry, just let us know and we will happily look into it, if there is not a problem it does not matter, we would rather take a look than miss an animal’s distress.
Indeed if you are ever worried about a horse, pony or donkey or any other farm animal, whatever the time of year, please do contact us about your concerns. You’ll find a form for completion on our ‘Report Cruelty’ page.
