Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

Adoption scheme

Adopt one of our residents – it makes a brilliant Birthday, Christmas or Anniversary present. Or adopt for yourself and come down and visit your adopted animal and their friends any day between 10am and 3pm (2pm in Winter). For a donation of £15 we send you a letter from your animal, a personalised certificate and a special photo. All of the adoption money you donate goes towards the day-to-day costs of looking after your horse, pony or donkey (or mule!) If this a present for someone else we can post out to a friend or relative and include a ‘This is a gift from’ card for you

We can't do this on our own

YOU can help make THE difference...

Ned
Ned
£15.00

A gentle donkey with the people he knows, but shy with strangers.

Ned is a cheeky donkey who lived with Lilac in their previous home. When Lilac came to live with us, Ned began to miss her and later on his owner asked if we also had space for Ned, we were happy to offer him a space and reunite him with Lilac.

He is a very strong donkey and is also sensitive and can be quite nervous. We are gaining his trust gradually and he is learning to be friends.
