The Animal Healing Trust
Cost of project
The Animal Healing Trust and Horse Rescue was founded in 2008 after its founder, Sue, started to rescue abused and neglected Horses and Ponies.
What is The Animal Healing Trust and Horse Rescue?
After the Trust was initially founded, Sue started to have members of the public contact her to help them with Horses and Ponies they could no longer cope with, or who knew of any who needed rescuing due to neglect or abuse. They currently look after 23 Horses and Ponies, and all 23 residents have come from backgrounds of abuse or neglect of some kind, and have just needed a safe place to live out their days where they are safe and cared for with love and kindness. The Animal Healing Trust and Horse Rescue is a small,local charity that is ran entirely by volunteers. All the money raised by the Trust goes towards the upkeep of the Horses and Ponies – it costs around £100 a month to care for each one.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
The Animal Healing Trust and Horse Rescue would love to repair the field shelters for the Horses and Ponies, with 2 needing completely rebuilding as the winter elements have had an effect on them. The Animal Healing Trust and Horse Rescue receives no funding, and relies solely on donations, and its volunteers’ efforts through fundraising, to pay for the upkeep of the Horses and Ponies. This has an average monthly cost of around £2,300, meaning that essential maintenance work needed at the Trust has had to wait. The Horses and Ponies use these field shelters to shelter from the wind, rain, snow and sun!
Due to them being rescued Horses/Ponies, they often will refuse to go into stables with doors on, as many regard that as a place where they suffered abuse. Instead, having a large field shelter without doors on that they can choose to go in and out of is an ideal solution.
