The H.A.P.P.A Horse Sanctuary was started in 1937 to help fight against the transportation of large horses to the continent for slaughter. It is just a few miles from where I live so I thought I would go and take a look as I hadn’t been there since I was little.
The sanctuary and its staff investigate over 800 cases of cruelty and neglect each year, offering advice and support when possible and preventing cruelty by intervention and prosecution when necessary.
This sanctuary helps horses, donkeys, and even a sheep! It rescues animals that have been mistreated and abandoned.
You can help to raise funds to keep the rescue centre open and the animals well looked after. You can adopt a horse, pony, donkey or even a sheep and these payments will help support the animal with food costs and medical care.
