OUR MISSION IS TO REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE NUMBER OF ABUSED & ABANDONED ANIMALS ON OUR ISLAND THROUGH EDUCATION AND
AWARENESS. Faial (Azores, Portugal).
Presently on our island, we have approximately
250 equines living in varying conditions.
It is virtually impossible for us to find good homes for all our rescues, and horses continue to be bred, even by the government. Therefore, the problem continues to escalate.
There are currently no laws in Portugal to protect equines against neglect, abuse or abandonment.
