The story behind the Horse Sanctuary Trust

I worked as a fundraising consultant for Cart Horse Protection Association from approximately 2010 to 2017. During this time I started following a number of animal welfare organisations across the Western Cape, particularly those involved in rescuing abused or neglected horses.

Over time it became clear that the demand for help far outweighed the capabilities of these organisations. There are charities doing absolutely incredible work, but funding available either through private donations or corporate giving is just not enough to create a substantial difference to the lives of the horses who suffer every day.

We aim to support their work by raising funds internationally for projects to create safe and humane living conditions for the horses who need it.

This encompasses projects to: distribute feed, basic veterinary essentials, build safe paddocks within communities or private yards, improve stable yards with the distribution of supplies (such as cement, wood, bedding), and provide feed and water containers where needed.
