The Andalusian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH) was founded in 2009 by a small group of horse lovers, all of whom had experience working with rescued animals. Rather than follow in the footsteps of so many charitable organizations who take on far too many rescued animals – reducing their capacity to provide each case with maximum support – with our limited resources we chose to take on fewer cases, ensuring each animal receives the attention they require. Initially, we tried to limit the numbers of rescues, thus ensuring that we could offer the best care and rehabilitation. When we opened, we took in mostly abandoned horses and donkeys – they appeared tied up at our gate. However, with the arrival of the financial crisis things changed, thousands of beautiful, fit young horses were sent to slaughter as their owners and breeders were unable to feed the mares or sell the foals. Lorries were queuing up at the slaughterhouse door. Soon our policy of limiting our intake went out of the window as we desperately tried to rescue as many equines as we could, each one a victim of the economic downturn. During the first few years of our existence, we often had to appeal to our supporters and sponsors for help as our rescue numbers grew. To everyone who has supported us over the years, we are eternally grateful. We anticipate a similar situation to the previous financial crisis once the impacts of the coronavirus take effect, so our mission remains as important as ever. With the improvement in animal cruelty legislation, we are able to prosecute abusive owners. Almost all our rescued equines now come from Seprona, the environmental law enforcement, having been confiscated or found abandoned. We work closely with our animal rights lawyer, Aritz Toribio, Seprona, and local equine vets to rescue animals in danger and take their owners to court. It is an uphill struggle to ensure that judges and public prosecutors are enforcing the new laws as intended, but with time the message will get through that animals have rights, and they must uphold them. The legal process is time-consuming, costly and ongoing – all donations are very gratefully received to help us fight for justice. The ARCH team of volunteers has grown over the years, and we are deeply grateful to each and every volunteer.
At Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre, our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives. It all began with a stallion locked in a filthy stable. We moved to Spain from England in 2001, aiming to slip into an easy sunshine-and-relaxation retirement. But all that changed in 2008 with Luceiro, a two-year-old stallion we found locked in a filthy and dark stable, his left eye badly injured and rotting, hurling himself repeatedly against the bars of his stall as flies drove him crazy. Unable to walk away from such a distressing case of animal cruelty, we brought Luceiro home to our own finca – and unwittingly created a much-needed horse rescue centre. We set up our Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre near the little town of Rojales in the province of Alicante, along Spain’s Mediterranean coastline. We now care for more than 120 horses, ponies and donkeys saved from abuse and neglect, plus a menagerie of other rescued animals, including dogs, cats, parrots, chickens, geese, peacocks and pigs. Our rescue centre has attracted significant media attention both in Spain and abroad, particularly after our daring and difficult rescue of Faith the Pony, which pushed animal welfare into the public spotlight. Faith became the first pony in Spain to be fitted with a prosthetic leg after her mutilated front leg had to be amputated. In 2014, American publication Narratively ran a feature-length story on the rescue, entitled Saving an Amputee Pony Named Faith. Faith's journey inspired Sue to write a series of children's books telling the stories of our rescued horses, aiming to raise awareness about animal abuse while generating additional funds to cover the centre's hefty running costs. The first children’s book, Faith: Diary of a Heroic Horse, is now available via our free monthly open day.
In 2015, Trebaluger Equine Rescue Centre, a non-profit association, was formed to offer a place of saftey to horses and donkeys that had been abandoned or neglected on the island. With the help of family, friends and volunteers, Samantha Lake formed Trebaluger equine rescue centre with Kate and Vicki as signatories. We rent premises which have 42,000m2 of land with a few stables and have grown from just a few horses to now homing 26 permanent equine residents. Over the years 14 cats have appeared and now live with us, numerous chickens and cockerels and 2 ducks. The land unfortunalty isn't arable land so doesn't allow us to grow any feed, but we do have beautiful wooded areas offering shade in the hot summer for them all. None of us are experts, we just love animals, and give our time to the centre freely. We all have busy lives and jobs but, with the help of volunteers, give these rescued animals a chance to live happy, healthy and safe lives. It's not always easy, it's hard work but truly rewarding. We believe that every horse, pony, donkey and mule has the right to a happy and healthy life, free of fear and neglect, giving them a safe & loving place to live & be free, providing essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care. We gradually re introduce human contact, some of the horses have never had contact & others have lost their trust in humans due to bad experiences in the past. We currently provide permanent sanctuary care to 26 residents, the majority of whom are unlikely to be re-homed due to their challenging veterinary needs, sympathetic handling requirements or behavioural difficulties, which are a result of the neglect they have suffered. The Horses & Donkeys live out all year round in natural herds, encouraging them to exhibit their natural behaviour and make friends. Some, however, are stabled during the night for safely or health reasons. Our aim is to ensure that every resident at the Rescue, no matter how complex their needs, has the opportunity to live out the rest of their days in a loving and safe environment.
The Donkey Sanctuary's mission is to transform the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people worldwide through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships. Our vision is a world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued. Our values are compassion, collaboration and creativity are The Donkey Sanctuary values. They are the key to our journey as they represent what we stand for and what we measure ourselves against. The Donkey Sanctuary is above all else compassionate. We never turn away from a donkey in need. Donkeys and the people who rely on them for their livelihoods or to help them cope with physical, mental and emotional challenges, lie at the heart of everything we do. We act as a global driving force for caring, both for suffering donkeys and mules, and for all those people whose lives they touch - generating understanding, compassion and support all over the world. The Donkey Sanctuary is collaborative in all its activities, working through a worldwide network of partner organisations, communities and individuals. We work inclusively with people frequently marginalised within their own countries and communities, whether due to poverty, ignorance, race, gender or disabilities. We treat every interaction as a two-way opportunity to learn and to teach. We know that it is only together that we can help donkey owners and carers become donkey welfare ambassadors wherever they live and work. The Donkey Sanctuary’s goals are ambitious, but its resources are finite – which means that we must exercise creativity to meet the ambitious goals we set ourselves. Whether this be in adapting locally available materials for donkey-friendly harness across projects that span four different continents, in developing donkey assisted therapy activities tailored to the unique challenges of a child with additional needs, or reaching donkey owning communities in the midst of man-made or natural disasters - creative thinking underpins everything we do.
The Protector of Horses and Other Animals "All the Horses in the World" is unique in its kind. Through the Association we raise awareness about animal abuse, we feed the inhabitants of our abandoned and abused animal shelter, and we guarantee their veterinary care. El Refugio, for its part, has more than 50,000 m2, which makes us one of the largest refuges in Europe. In it, we take care of more than 200 animals including horses, dogs, cats, ferrets, turtles, turkeys and chickens that live in semi-freedom, choosing where and with whom they want to be. We don't like cages. We are Concordia and Virginia, the two sisters who run All the Horses in the World. We are pioneers in the fight for the protection of horses and the creation and management of a refuge with very special characteristics. We have searched for a thousand solutions to "cure" animal abuse in Spain, and we have come to the conclusion that Fight and Love are the two sides of the same coin that allow us to move forward. However, as in all great stories, there is a third essential element: the people who support you and believe in you. It all started about 20 years ago when Concordia came to Malaga and began to find many abandoned horses. He looked for a place where he could house them, currently the Shelter for All the Horses in the World, which is one of the largest Shelters in Europe and, in fact, a Home for the animals (dogs, cats, ferrets, turtles, chickens...) that they cross our path and suffer mistreatment or abuse of any kind by human beings. Soon after, he called his family. She felt lonely, overwhelmed (due to the large number of animals that needed help) and lacked financial resources. So, without much thought, our parents and I sold our house in Madrid, left friends, work and came to Malaga. My sister and I sat down to talk. We had two options: continue helping (with family support) the animals that my sister had already rescued and "stop", or become a non-profit association that would allow us to extend our help to all kinds of animals and, above all, fight for their lives to change. We chose the second option: dedicate our lives to animal protection, giving up many things, without looking back. This is how the CYD Santa María Association emerged, currently known as the Protector of All Horses in the World. Our greatest success, without a doubt, is every life saved, every suffering avoided. But we are also especially proud of our participation in the drafting of Royal Decree 804/2011, thanks to which we managed to get horses recognized as domestic pets, expanding their legal protection, something that no one had bothered about until that moment. Since then, our work has garnered numerous awards, in addition to having been awarded with the highest awards granted by the Civil Guard, SEPRONA, the Official College of Veterinarians of Malaga (V de Oro), etc. But unfortunately, there is still much to do. There are still people who kill the puppies or "leave" them in the garbage, as if it didn't matter... We have also been fighting for years to guarantee the Welfare of carriage horses. We have achieved some improvements, but, without a doubt, insufficient. To really get to know each other, the most important thing is that you know that we are the people who are going to continue fighting tirelessly until the situation of the animals improves. I hope we live to see it. It is difficult to fight, to survive, without help. Thank God we have always had good people who have been encouraged to be part of this History, Our History. At All the Horses in the World, we firmly believe that loving someone implies taking care of them, respecting them and, when they suffer, putting their needs before yours. We have given up many dreams to continue helping them and thus be able to achieve our most important dream, which is that, one day, animals obtain a status that allows them to live alongside humans while being respected. Join the Family of the Protector and Refuge of All the Horses of the World to help the animals that need it most.
Northcote Heavy Horse Centre started in 1989, our charity provides animals with an enriched and nurturing life. Our mission is to provide a sanctuary to all horses and animals that come to us. To educate our guests on animal welfare, animal history and their legacies. We are a small but dedicated animal welfare charity based near Skegness in Lincolnshire. We care for lots of difference animals including horses, goats, pigs, birds of prey, llamas and more. Many of our residents have had tragic backgrounds or have even been turned down by other charities. We step in and provide our animals with a safe and loving home in our sanctuary. Since 1989 Northcote Heavy Horse Centre has been promoting animal welfare in an educational setting, allowing visitors the unique chance to meet our animals and enjoy hands-on learning experiences. The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre was the original idea of Keith & Ruth Sanders in 1988. Following a long-standing family hobby, the chance to have Ebony back after his working life at Young's Brewery in London; (Ebony was owned by the family from being 3 years old until the age of 7 when he went to London) stimulated the idea of creating something worthwhile. The Centre opened in July 1989. Faith plays a major part in our life here in rural Lincolnshire. Without faith and help and guidance from our creator, we could not have survived the bad times in the mid 1990's and the "Foot & Mouth" epidemic of 2001. We only have the money we can earn by our own merit and the help we receive from our supporters and "friends". The care problems of Big Horses with big problems are a constant worry. Development of the Centre has changed direction from its simple beginnings; ordained mainly by demand on the family to create a "haven of rest and tranquillity" for visitors and horses alike! Visitors and the helpers themselves are strongly influenced by close contact with these large, impressively intelligent and calming animals. One of the highlights of our life was in 1993 when Keith was nominated by his peers for inclusion in the Miller Reference Guide "Best of British Men". This was for his work in bringing horses and people together and improving understanding and enjoyment of heavy horses. The most memorable and moving "happening" was when Pam Rhodes and the BBC "Songs of Praise" team arrived at the Centre to film part of the 1995 "Harvest Festival" programme. Today, the Centre is a non-profit-making organisation, run entirely by voluntary helpers, with the intention of continuing the work already established here. Providing a home and caring facilities for horses with particular needs. We earnestly believe that these horses, who have given their all in their working environment, should be allowed to enjoy the remainder of their lives in a happy, caring environment where they can contribute to the happiness of others. Over the last 30 years, we have positively established the fact that the horses love to work. They benefit by being needed. Working within their individual capabilities, they have an increased sense of well-being and contributing to the general need. The Centre also caters for horses that are disabled but still able to enjoy a good quality of life under care. A nucleus of fit working horses undertake most of the day-to-day tasks around the centre. One unpaid manager and one unpaid deputy take care of the day-to-day duties with the assistance of volunteer "friends" of all ages and from all backgrounds. Many of these volunteer helpers travel huge distances each year and many give up their annual holidays to be of assistance. Funding towards our annual operating costs is made up mainly from receipts from visitors, donations from friends, fund-raising activities and income from special events. In 2003, we created our very first MEDIAEVAL DAY. On the last Sunday of August, over 800 people came to see our costume pageant with all characters and horses in authentic mediaeval garb! The horses loved taking part in the "Riding Skills" with lance sword and javelin against quintain, quoits and various other static targets. "Medieval weekend" and a further fully costumed major projects are now annual events. We also take these "entertaining pageants" to other shows around England to help raise funds and awareness of our work.
The Pegasus Sanctuary was set up almost 15 years ago by Felicity at her home in rural Normandy. The sanctuary was set up with the primary aim to rescue and re-home equines destined for the abattoir. Since then, as well as rescuing hundreds of equines from the abattoir, we have also saved over 10 destined for the Spanish Bull Fights. In 2016, The Pegasus Sanctuary became a fully registered charity within France. During this time Felicity has re-homed hundreds of equines destined for the abattoir and is the only organisation in Normandy to do so on such an extensive scale. All the horses, ponies and donkeys at the sanctuary have been rescued from the fate of the meat trade. Many of these animals arrived at the sanctuary in a terrible state, having been neglected, abused and put through emotional stress, some needing immediate veterinary care. Felicity with a small team of volunteers cares and provides them with a safe haven to recuperate until a new home is found. The Pegasus Sanctuary is only small, with around 10 acres of land and some large barns to house the rescued equines. Currently, there are almost 50 equines at the Sanctuary, all have been rescued from the abattoir and many are awaiting to be rehomed. The task of caring for such a large number of horses, ponies and donkeys with varying needs and health conditions is exceptionally difficult. The cost of food, visits from the farrier every 6 – 8 weeks, the dentist and veterinary treatments etc., the list is endless. Without the kindness of Our Supporters, The Pegasus Sanctuary would simply not exist and many more of these beautiful creatures would sadly end their days at the fate of the abattoir.

Colby's Crew Rescue, established in 2021, is a pending 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is solely focused on the good and well-being of the horse. In August 2020, our horse Colby was rescued from heading to slaughter. His journey that started out as abuse, neglect, fear of humans and danger has changed into a journey full of compassion, trust, and positivity. Colby has formed an inseparable bond with his trainer, Ally. This bond has inspired the creation of this rescue to help other horses, like Colby, that are in need. Every year in the United States, over 80,000 horses are shipped out to Mexico or Canada to slaughterhouses. These horses endure a one-way trailer rider to an unimaginable fate. The last stop before a slaughterhouse is a direct-ship kill pen. Colby's Crew rescues horses from kill pens, auctions and bad situations. These horses are usually in terrible condition: sick, neglected and tossed away. We strive to provide rehabilitation, veterinary care, training, and eventually adoption to forever homes!

Dr. Rick Howard joined Arizona Equine in June of 2005. His major interests are orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery and the diagnosis and treatment of equine lameness. In this day and age of technology, advanced equipment is a necessity. Their ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients is magnified many-fold by judicial use of appropriate equipment. Like any large hospital, the support staff is indispensable to obtaining the mission of Arizona Equine. Their exceptional staff members help with the day-to-day chores involved in running the hospital. Without them, the clinic could not function properly. Arizona Equine started in 1984 with construction of the main hospital. In 1991 a larger barn was added to provide more inside stalls and room for the nuclear scintigraphy facility. In 1996 outside pens were added to give them a place to house horses that did not require intensive care. In 1999, they added another treatment room, more doctor’s offices, and more storage room. The physical facility has proven to be very functional and is a great asset in helping Arizona Equine provide exceptional veterinary care. In 2005, they added a state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) room. MRI is superior to all other modalities in the diagnoses of soft tissue and bony issues in the limb. Arizona Equine Medical & Surgical Centre offers a range of equine diagnostic and treatment services at this facility in Gilbert, Arizona. As the largest centre of its kind in the desert southwest region we offer ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, MRI, endoscopy and computed and digital radiology. The surgical facilities are equally extensive and include arthroscopy, colic surgery, laser surgery, laparoscopy and many types of soft tissue surgery.
