There’s quite a few horse rescue and welfare organisations around the world, and they all desperately need funds to continue their superb work.
Horse sanctuaries and rescue centres usually allow you to become a member or adopt a horse.
Some have merchandise for sale and you can donate money, feed, wormers or second-hand horse gear.
Volunteer services are much in demand and if there is a horse resue organisation in your area it can be very rewarding helping out, especially if you love being around horses.
Be sure to add your horse rescue center or horse sanctuary or any horse rescue service you know of to our Horse Rescue Section
