Passionate About Animals Since 1840



At DSPCA we take in horses, ponies & donkeys that have been neglected, abused or welfare compromised.  Once they have been rehabilitated & gone through basic handling work, they then go forward for adoption. At certain times of the year we also look for foster homes (minimum period of 6 months) to assist us with grazing & handling

Our aim is to match the right horse to the right home, so please give as much detail on the application form. Rescues are re-homed as either companion, riding or unbacked project. If we have an equine that suits what you are looking for, we will get in touch to arrange a visit to our animal shelter. We then carry out a home check.
