We think all the animals we rescue deserve a Second Chance at happiness and we work very hard to rehabilitate every animal admitted to our Centre and eventually find them their Forever Home with a loving family. We celebrate every time the right home is found for one of our horses, ponies and donkeys and we want you to share in this celebration every time an animal that you are sponsoring through our Second Chance Sponsorship Scheme finds their special someone and leaves our Centre to begin a new and fulfilling life.
The majority of adoption/sponsorship schemes rely on your chosen animal being kept with the charity rather than being offered a Second Chance. We recognise that not every animal can be guaranteed a Forever Home and certain animals need specialist care that is best provided within a Centre environment, however, we felt that animals offered on our previous adoption scheme were being denied a Second Chance in a Forever Home as our adopters enjoyed visiting them and spending time with them at our Centre as this was an expectation implicit within this type of scheme. A recent review of our activities highlighted that this style of adoption scheme did not fit with our mission to continually strive to improve equine welfare through rescue, rehabilitation and education as we were denying a number of animals the same opportunity as others in our care. We believe that this new scheme addresses this in a very positive way.
To celebrate an animal being given a Second Chance, sponsors will receive special rosettes EVERY TIME an animal they have chosen starts their new life in a Forever Home. We believe that this is the first scheme to reward our sponsors in such an innovative and exciting way.
