We have launched a new winter appeal to help raise £2,500 to feed not only the veterans and permanent residents at the Sanctuary, but those neglected, unloved and abandoned animals that are either tethered by their necks on waste ground or just left wandering and unwanted with no food, no water and no shelter.    

We will also be promoting our winter feed appeal on #GivingTuesday – Tuesday 28 November – a date which is all about supporting and celebrating Britain’s charities.   

Donations can be made via the JustGiving appeal page or via the Charity website at: www.remussanctuary.org/donate/ or by texting FEED36 £10 to 70070 to donate to Remus with JustTextGiving. Please note that text donations can only be for £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. However, a donor can donate up to three times per day. £10 is the maximum donation amount for all mobile operators.   

Additionally, we offer numerous ‘treats’ via our online shop at: www.remussanctuary.org/product-category/treats-for-remus/ where visitors can buy a bale of hay, bag of animal food, straw bedding and plenty more. A week’s supply of food and hay for a tethered horse in your area will help improve their life and wellbeing for just £25 and undoubtedly help get them through the winter months.   

At present, there are more than 7,000 horses at risk in the UK and the welfare crisis in this country continues to escalate year on year with little or no progress - when the mares foal, the problem doubles and so on and so forth each year.    

The news regularly features victims of physical and mental abuse and the Charity continues to receive calls daily. Keeping an animal fed over winter will give it a chance to thrive into Spring. Forage also helps a horse keep warm. Without the Sanctuary’s help, many animals will die a slow, painful and unnecessary death. 

About the charity

Remus Horse Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and lifetime care for over 200 horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats and cats in Essex. We provide a safe environment for these animals that have been victims of physical and mental abuse, whether because of ignorance or malicious intent.
