£3,056raised of £1,500 target by 133 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to raise funds for the rehabilitation of abandoned pony 'Sophie'

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Sophie is now SAFE, having been abandoned in Surrey. Under RSPCA monitoring with several other ponies, to avoid action, her 'owners' callously took her from her stable-mates and dumped her on wasteland leaving her to fend for herself in bitter conditions, alone. Now at our vets for observation and tests, we await the results of blood tests from the lab. We do know she has a huge worm burden, a high temperature on admittance and teaming with lice. She is emaciated under her thick winter coat.

As soon as she is clear of any transmittable diseases or infections she will come to SAFE HQ in Berkshire where she will be fully rehabilitated and eventually homed - ensuring she will never end up alone, again.

    Sadly, Sophie lost her fight on 11 February. Thank you to all who donated towards her vet bills. We will continue to rescue abandoned horses and ponies like her.
