Overwhelming response to our equine fostering appeal

Overwhelming response to our equine fostering appeal

The RSPCA has been  overwhelmed with the fantastic response in their appeal for fosterers for young horses and ponies, receiving over 300 applications.

Launched on 14 May, the aim of our Stable Future appeal was to find foster carers for young horses and ponies that had suffered neglect and cruelty until such time as they were ready to go to permanent new homes.

And we're pleased to say that we have found fosterers for many of the 270 young ponies in our care and so far at least 13 horses have already gone to their new homes.

Tack, rugs and equipment have also been donated. And some generous people have even offered land on which to keep some of the horses.
