Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys. Promoting the welfare and status of donkeys through a culture of caring. In 2001, Dr Johan & Annemarie van Zijl of McGregor village in the Western Cape of South Africa responded to a request from the SPCA to provide shelter for two badly neglected donkeys. The two fellows arrived and were named Vaal & Japie - "vaaljapie" is an Afrikaans term for everyday wine. Soon it became evident that there were many other donkeys similarly in desperate need of food, water, shelter and care. The dream of a Donkey Sanctuary was born. The experience with the first two donkeys was in effect to serve as a pilot project for Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary. During this period many more abused, discarded and elderly donkeys could have been taken in, but lack of space and limited resources did not yet allow for this. Foster homes were found, with some difficulty, for these donkeys. In April 2007, Adam arrived from Zoar (near Ladismith), followed shortly by Ida and Thabo, working donkeys from the McGregor area. Other donkeys followed coming from places like Somerset West, Cape Town, Wellington and Atlantis. Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary was officially opened to the public by David Kramer, our Patron, in November 2007.

Have a Heart Equine Sanctuary is a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 210005) for horses and farm animals and was founded in 2017. The Sanctuary gives all equines in need a place of safety, love and a chance for a new life. Our goal is to care for horses that have been neglected, abused, abandoned or are unmanageable to their current owners. We take in equines in need of medical attention and/or behavioural training. Their care will be tracked throughout their lives to ensure their permanent safety. The Sanctuary also exists to educate the public about equine care and rehabilitation. Have a Heart Equine Sanctuary does not only take in equines, we offer a safe and loving home to all farm animals that will live out their days on our farm. We provide a re-homing service to suitable homes on a special adoption policy for equines whose owners can no longer afford them. Should you wish to adopt one of our horses, please see our Adopt a Horse page. If you are unable to adopt a horse, but could offer temporary care by fostering one of our horses before they find their forever home. The education of horse owners and communities in areas in which we work is a vital part of our organisation. We make every effort to first educate owners before we remove horses, but there are unfortunately many people who cannot, or often will not, try to improve their horses’ condition. If an animal’s well-being is at risk, we will step in and confiscate the animal. We investigate cases of neglect, cruelty and abuse reported by the public. Should you know of any animals currently facing any form of abuse, neglect or abandonment, please report this to us. Under no circumstances will your details be given out to anyone without your express permission.

Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary is a registered charity that cares for abused and ill-treated donkeys and other animals. Although we do not actively rescue other animals, those that have joined us in recent years include a sheep, some goats, chickens, geese, ducks and a pot bellied pig called Percy. Located in the village of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell near Wallingford, Oxfordshire, we welcome visitors between 11am and 4pm daily. Although we do not charge an entrance fee, donations are appreciated. We are unable to allow dogs in the main yard as donkeys and strange dogs do not mix. Donkeys wander around the yard so this rule is for your dogs safety. Dogs are allowed in the front paddock walkway on a lead.

We are a charitable organisation safeguarding the welfare of all horses and ponies. We not only provide sanctuary to animals who have been mistreated but we are also a valuable resource to horse lovers everywhere. We have been operating for many years and celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2012. Recently, we celebrate 40 years at the Brownbread Horse Rescue centre in the high Weald of Sussex. In about 1974 one of our fields of 10 acres had so many ant hills that it was almost impossible to use farm machinery on it so we ploughed it up and re-seeded with selected grass seeds and clovers. This was the only field of the 60 acres that was ever disturbed. Consequently the majority of the farm has been down to pasture with some of the hay fields being cropped for hay late in the season. This management of the land has resulted in the farm having one of the highest numbers of flora and fauna species for any Wealden meadow farm. Yes, throughout the summer the fields are a blaze of multi-colours teeming with the buzz of myriads of insects. After 38 years even the 10-acre field has reverted to a rich pasture of variable delights for the rescued horses. Of course we keep down the ragwort whose seeds are very long-lived but we also leave those few ragwort plants that have the cinnamon caterpillars munching away; biological control is always preferred and those moths will do a sterling job next year; lets hope they hang around. The government’s department, “Natural England” has visited over several years and wondered excitedly at the fervent, rich pasture, so much so that they are now putting the farm into the higher level scheme. Oh, yes, this means certain requirements in the way we manage the farm but these are usually common sense, like not cutting hedges when birds start nesting but, otherwise, more or less carrying on what we have been doing successfully over the years. One of the requirements for entering the scheme was that the archaeological interests, if any, on the farm should be researched.

We believe that every horse, pony, donkey and mule has the right to a happy and healthy life, free of fear and neglect. We rescue abandoned, mistreated and neglected horses and donkeys from across the UK, giving them a safe place to live and providing essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care. Redwings is the UK’s largest horse sanctuary, responsible for over 2,000 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, and funded solely by donations from kind supporters like you! We strive to provide and promote the care and protection of all horses and donkeys by offering a place of safety to those in need, rehoming those with the potential for a fulfilling life outside the Sanctuary, and educating owners and future generations about the value of horse welfare. Our story begins as it does for many charities, with a small but committed group of people desperate to make a difference. For Redwings, the story began with the rescue of a single pony called Sheba. She was rescued from a dealer and her recovery inspired the formation of a sanctuary in 1984 dedicated to saving horses from a life of fear and neglect. From that one life saved in the beginning, we are now a registered charity and care for more than 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules every day at our farms across the country. We also have 500 horses living in Guardian homes through our rehoming programme. Although our headquarters are still based in our home-county of Norfolk, we also operate nationally with our incredible rescue teams working tirelessly to save horses and ponies; indeed the vast majority of our residents have been directly rescued from a situation of abuse or neglect (read our rescue stories). We’ve come a long way as a charity. And horse welfare has come a long way thanks to our efforts and those of our fellow welfare organisations. But our work doesn’t end there. Sadly our rescue teams are still needed and that means we still need your support too. Together we can help horses in need.

We are an international charity whose values are grounded in pragmatism and compassion that strives to support and improve the horse-human partnership in all of its guises. Our mission is to work with horses, horse owners, communities, organisations and governments to improve welfare standards and stamp out suffering in the UK and worldwide. World Horse Welfare was founded in 1927, as a campaigning organisation to prevent the export of live British horses for slaughter. The charity’s founder, Ada Cole, was spurred into action after witnessing a procession of British work horses being unloaded and whipped for four miles to slaughter in Belgium. From the beginning, she defined our approach – combining practicality with passion. A decade after our foundation, we achieved our first major milestone – providing protection for British horses being exported for slaughter – this legislation is still in place today. Over the years, we have continued to campaign, while expanding our activities to include welfare and protection around the world. Our founder, Ada Cole, continues to be a source of inspiration for everyone at World Horse Welfare. We believe that horses and humans have evolved a unique partnership and that horses have an important role in society which is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. Whether working animals, family pets, equine athletes, conservation grazers or companions, horses contribute to our lives, cultures and economies. This partnership is right so long as people take full responsibility for their welfare.

BTRC is dedicated to improving and promoting the welfare of retired race horses through education, rehabilitation, retraining and suitable rehoming in order to ensure that our Thoroughbreds have a rewarding and valuable life after their racing careers have ended. Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career and others through injury or lack of ability. Established in 1991, The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre was the UK’s first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, rehabilitation, retraining, rehoming and protection for life. To celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary in 2016 TRC evolved and became The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre. The BTRC is a Centre of Excellence, not only for the retraining of thoroughbreds, but also as an education centre to ensure best practice is maintained in this ever increasingly popular area of the equestrian pleasure industry. At the BTRC we aim to help as many horses as possible each year to be rehomed, these horses either come straight from the racing industry or pre-trained equestrian homes that for many reasons can no longer cope or care for the horse. The horses then enter into the loan programme and are matched with suitable loaners, but all horses remain under BTRC ownership for the rest of its life. Over the years the BTRC has re-homed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post-racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines. Although we receive a small amount of industry funding from Retraining of Racehorses, the majority of our income is sourced through public donations, Friends of the BTRC and legacies.

​Welcome to The H.A.C.K. Horse Sanctuary a Rescue- Rehabilitation- Education Centre, situated near Wrexham, North East Wales, and founded in March 1992 by Pamela Bluck. A fully registered charity and full welfare members of The National Equine Welfare Council ​ The Aim and Object of the charity is to rescue neglected, abused, cruelly treated and abandoned horses, ponies, and donkeys and sometimes includes other animals. To rehabilitate and find loving homes suited to each individual equine. Over the years a great many horses, ponies and donkeys have come through the gates at H.A.C.K. single abandonment cases, large neglected cases and others. We have worked in partnership with both, Local Authorities and the Police, and other official bodies. H.A.C.K. has also rescued ponies from unnecessary slaughter, (where many young colts end up,) but these ponies can go on to make fabulous children's ponies in many different disciplines, sadly we cannot save them all but we try our best to help in other ways too. It would be so easy to fill the sanctuary up to the rafters with rescued horses but their welfare would be compromised with not only a constant lack of funds but also individual care and it would be totally irresponsible to move misery from one place to another. We work within our means but can also offer support in other ways ​ To Educate on horse welfare, the responsibilities of owning any animal and meeting the 5 basic needs of horse ownership. H.A.C.K. is unique in the fact that is run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to the welfare of the horse. When horses come into the sanctuary, we are faced with many different problems but every care is taken to make the horse comfortable and settled before the work begins to make them well again . Diet is developed to suit the needs of the individual animal , and a overall heath check including, teeth, worming, vaccination, and any other medical needs they may have. Each and every horse, pony and/or donkey are put into a regular routine, each one is handled, taught to have his feet pick up, groomed, taught manners and how to lead. Later they are traffic trained and walked out in-hand usually through The Alyn Waters Park and along the lanes and eventually along a more busy venue. ​ When established youngsters start their programme into training at about 3 years old all depending on development. We begin with lunging and long reining, they will have already been taught voice control/aids and most by now are confident to take this training in their stride. Eventually they are backed and then ridden away, most are turned out for the winter and come back into work the following Spring. ​ Some of the older Horses may have to be retrained and this can be a long and repetitive job as they have learnt how to evade and misbehave, but we are never in a rush and the end result has to be a horse that is suitable to be re-homed into a regular working environment and/or as a companion/pet. Those who are deemed unsuitable for re-homing will stay within the protection of H.A.C.K. and are used for education purposes ​ Sadly not all rescued horses, ponies or donkey's make a recovery and some have to be put to sleep. A very hard decision to make I know, but sometimes there just isn't any alternative. It is something we have to deal with and is not a pleasant task.

We believe that horses and humans have evolved a unique partnership and that horses have an important role in society which is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. Whether working animals, family pets, equine athletes, conservation grazers or companions, horses contribute to our lives, cultures and economies. This partnership is right so long as people take full responsibility for their welfare.

We are a charitable organisation safeguarding the welfare of all horses and ponies. We not only provide sanctuary to animals who have been mistreated but we are also a valuable resource to horse lovers everywhere. We have been operating for many years and celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2012. Recently, we celebrate 40 years at the Brownbread Horse Rescue centre in the high Weald of Sussex. In about 1974 one of our fields of 10 acres had so many ant hills that it was almost impossible to use farm machinery on it so we ploughed it up and re-seeded with selected grass seeds and clovers. This was the only field of the 60 acres that was ever disturbed. Consequently the majority of the farm has been down to pasture with some of the hay fields being cropped for hay late in the season. This management of the land has resulted in the farm having one of the highest numbers of flora and fauna species for any Wealden meadow farm. Yes, throughout the summer the fields are a blaze of multi-colours teeming with the buzz of myriads of insects. After 38 years even the 10-acre field has reverted to a rich pasture of variable delights for the rescued horses. Of course we keep down the ragwort whose seeds are very long-lived but we also leave those few ragwort plants that have the cinnamon caterpillars munching away; biological control is always preferred and those moths will do a sterling job next year; lets hope they hang around. The government’s department, “Natural England” has visited over several years and wondered excitedly at the fervent, rich pasture, so much so that they are now putting the farm into the higher level scheme. Oh, yes, this means certain requirements in the way we manage the farm but these are usually common sense, like not cutting hedges when birds start nesting but, otherwise, more or less carrying on what we have been doing successfully over the years. One of the requirements for entering the scheme was that the archaeological interests, if any, on the farm should be researched.

We believe that every horse, pony, donkey and mule has the right to a happy and healthy life, free of fear and neglect. We rescue abandoned, mistreated and neglected horses and donkeys from across the UK, giving them a safe place to live and providing essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care. Redwings is the UK’s largest horse sanctuary, responsible for over 2,000 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, and funded solely by donations from kind supporters like you! We strive to provide and promote the care and protection of all horses and donkeys by offering a place of safety to those in need, rehoming those with the potential for a fulfilling life outside the Sanctuary, and educating owners and future generations about the value of horse welfare. Our story begins as it does for many charities, with a small but committed group of people desperate to make a difference. For Redwings, the story began with the rescue of a single pony called Sheba. She was rescued from a dealer and her recovery inspired the formation of a sanctuary in 1984 dedicated to saving horses from a life of fear and neglect. From that one life saved in the beginning, we are now a registered charity and care for more than 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules every day at our farms across the country. We also have 500 horses living in Guardian homes through our rehoming programme. Although our headquarters are still based in our home-county of Norfolk, we also operate nationally with our incredible rescue teams working tirelessly to save horses and ponies; indeed the vast majority of our residents have been directly rescued from a situation of abuse or neglect (read our rescue stories). We’ve come a long way as a charity. And horse welfare has come a long way thanks to our efforts and those of our fellow welfare organisations. But our work doesn’t end there. Sadly our rescue teams are still needed and that means we still need your support too. Together we can help horses in need.

In 1969, Dr Elisabeth Svendsen's decision to buy a donkey named Naughty Face would alter the fate of incalculable numbers of donkeys around the globe in years to come. The Donkey Sanctuary took great strides into the new millennium, opening its doors in new countries and welcoming the 10,000th donkey into our care. Although the great Dr Elisabeth Svendsen MBE passed away in 2011, The Donkey Sanctuary has carried her legacy forward to help donkeys and mules for years to come. We are transforming the lives of donkeys in need worldwide by fostering greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships. A world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued. Wherever we find a donkey in need, we try to help. Through a challenging 2020 we took in 137 relinquishments, rehomed 94 donkeys, bringing the total number of donkeys in our rehoming scheme to 1,467. We Launched a Covid Emergency Response Fund, providing swift and vital support to organisations helping donkeys in urgent need and published several peer-reviewed papers, helping to boost the knowledge and status of donkeys across the globe.

BTRC is dedicated to improving and promoting the welfare of retired race horses through education, rehabilitation, retraining and suitable rehoming in order to ensure that our Thoroughbreds have a rewarding and valuable life after their racing careers have ended. Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career and others through injury or lack of ability. Established in 1991, The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre was the UK’s first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, rehabilitation, retraining, rehoming and protection for life. To celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary in 2016 TRC evolved and became The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre. The BTRC is a Centre of Excellence, not only for the retraining of thoroughbreds, but also as an education centre to ensure best practice is maintained in this ever increasingly popular area of the equestrian pleasure industry. At the BTRC we aim to help as many horses as possible each year to be rehomed, these horses either come straight from the racing industry or pre-trained equestrian homes that for many reasons can no longer cope or care for the horse. The horses then enter into the loan programme and are matched with suitable loaners, but all horses remain under BTRC ownership for the rest of its life. Over the years the BTRC has re-homed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post-racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines. Although we receive a small amount of industry funding from Retraining of Racehorses, the majority of our income is sourced through public donations, Friends of the BTRC and legacies.

​Welcome to The H.A.C.K. Horse Sanctuary a Rescue- Rehabilitation- Education Centre, situated near Wrexham, North East Wales, and founded in March 1992 by Pamela Bluck. A fully registered charity and full welfare members of The National Equine Welfare Council ​ The Aim and Object of the charity is to rescue neglected, abused, cruelly treated and abandoned horses, ponies, and donkeys and sometimes includes other animals. To rehabilitate and find loving homes suited to each individual equine. Over the years a great many horses, ponies and donkeys have come through the gates at H.A.C.K. single abandonment cases, large neglected cases and others. We have worked in partnership with both, Local Authorities and the Police, and other official bodies. H.A.C.K. has also rescued ponies from unnecessary slaughter, (where many young colts end up,) but these ponies can go on to make fabulous children's ponies in many different disciplines, sadly we cannot save them all but we try our best to help in other ways too. It would be so easy to fill the sanctuary up to the rafters with rescued horses but their welfare would be compromised with not only a constant lack of funds but also individual care and it would be totally irresponsible to move misery from one place to another. We work within our means but can also offer support in other ways ​ To Educate on horse welfare, the responsibilities of owning any animal and meeting the 5 basic needs of horse ownership. H.A.C.K. is unique in the fact that is run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to the welfare of the horse. When horses come into the sanctuary, we are faced with many different problems but every care is taken to make the horse comfortable and settled before the work begins to make them well again . Diet is developed to suit the needs of the individual animal , and a overall heath check including, teeth, worming, vaccination, and any other medical needs they may have. Each and every horse, pony and/or donkey are put into a regular routine, each one is handled, taught to have his feet pick up, groomed, taught manners and how to lead. Later they are traffic trained and walked out in-hand usually through The Alyn Waters Park and along the lanes and eventually along a more busy venue. ​ When established youngsters start their programme into training at about 3 years old all depending on development. We begin with lunging and long reining, they will have already been taught voice control/aids and most by now are confident to take this training in their stride. Eventually they are backed and then ridden away, most are turned out for the winter and come back into work the following Spring. ​ Some of the older Horses may have to be retrained and this can be a long and repetitive job as they have learnt how to evade and misbehave, but we are never in a rush and the end result has to be a horse that is suitable to be re-homed into a regular working environment and/or as a companion/pet. Those who are deemed unsuitable for re-homing will stay within the protection of H.A.C.K. and are used for education purposes ​ Sadly not all rescued horses, ponies or donkey's make a recovery and some have to be put to sleep. A very hard decision to make I know, but sometimes there just isn't any alternative. It is something we have to deal with and is not a pleasant task.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
