Our vision is to live on a planet where all lives are treated with love and respect


 

 

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.

  • Around 10 horses are abandoned each year
  • More than 75% live on a tether and are without a companion
  • 95% of the horses we treat are dehydrated and malnourished
  • All rescues have suffered physical and emotional abuse

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.

 

OUR GOAL:

  • secure the well being of our rescues
  • expand our outreach
  • prevention of further abandonment & abuse
  • through education and awareness

There are currently no laws in Portugal to protect equines against neglect, abuse or abandonment.
