Weʼre raising £2,000 to Rescue more horses to the sanctuary for old, retired, and neglected in Accra. Stables, built horses need medical care & additional groom.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Horse are not native to the southern part of Ghana. The famous Accra race track was sold to a luxury hotel development and horses, owners and grooms made homeless. Many died or ended up on beach ride horse suffering heat and exhaustion. Sport horses near retirement or injured are given away /gifted to many who dont' know how to care for them and don't have the space. They become diseased, distressed and neglected, and put back to work on the beaches.
There is space, volunteers, but urgently requirement for medical care, medicines and Ferrier services. There is no local Vet to the farm/stables who understands horses or Ferrier.
Our long term aim is to keep the horse for retirement and for school visits, awarness and supporting the SPCA aims. But importantly for Vet students to learn and interact with horses and train in the UK. There is no practicing equine vet in the country. We would love to sponsor a student one day.
Plutarch – "A good man will take care of his horses and dogs, not only while they are young, but also when they are old and past service."
Thank you for you consideration.
look forward to updating you!
