We are forever grateful for the donations we receive from our supporters, it is because of that generosity that we are able to rescue the animals that we do, month in month out. Each month we put up a gallery of some of the fortunate faces of the month's rescues. A massive THANK YOU from us, and especially from them.

Farrier Day

Farrier day today. Thirteen sets of feet sorted

 A domestic horse is unable to wear their hooves down as nature intended. Wild horses maintain their own hooves by moving many kilometres a day across a variety of surfaces. This keeps their hooves in good condition as the movement across abrasive surfaces wears (‘trims’) the hooves on a continual basis. Unshod domestic horses rarely move enough to wear down their hooves correctly. 

Our horses have a visit from the farrier ever 6 weeks without fail , thanks Charlie and Chris for a great service as always. 

Happy feet, happy herd.

Tanner's lucky day

Big news at the Sanctuary this weekend.

Tanner one of our very long term dogs, who has been with us about five years, maybe more.

He came in a troubled boy, he had bitten in two homes before we became involved in his case and had been dealt with by another rescue before our involvement. He did go to an experienced rescue via us in his early days with us but came back due to aggression issues.

He was difficult and it became apparent he would have to stay with us.

He’s been a happy boy and we’ve got over every challenge he has brought over the years. Recently we’ve been thinking he could do well in the right home and as much as we devote our lives to our sanctuary dogs we would always rather see them in a home with full attention and a better life.

He’s been improving over the years to a well rounded boy and nowadays you wouldn’t know he ever had problems.

Then out of nowhere the right home cropped up, he will always have a place here should he need us, he will always be our family, but he’s out on trial with the best person we could imagine for him with lots of EBT experience. So far he is loving life and his behaviour has been impeccable, he is loving the sofa life and all his walks and one on one attention. He has his very own person he doesn’t have to share.

It was a really hard thing to watch him leave, even though it’s for a better life, but he needed this and it wasn’t about us. Heartbreaking but heartbreak for the right reasons and coupled with a sanctuary full of big smiles.

Be a good boy Tanner and remember everything you’ve learnt. This is your chance my boy, live your best life

Little Gladys

This month we took in Gladys. She was cruelly thrown from a van like a piece of rubbish.

Gladys had an injury, at least a few days old, from some sort of trauma to her back, obviously the reason she was dumped. After coming into our care we took her immediately to the vets and it transgresses that she had a broken spine. CT scans showed an abscess around one of the fracture sites which greatly complicated matters. 

She had some major surgery which many of our fantastic supporters donated toward. The vet bill was £9000.  As always a huge thank you to them people. 

She is staying in our care at HQ until her 6 week crate rest is over. 

She has had a lovely visit and met her new future owners. She’s got her perfect home waiting for her. We couldn’t ask for better. Go on Gladys.
