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.
