Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre

Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives.

    We urgently need your support to build a secure boundary wall. Our old fence is falling to bits and our rescued horses are unsafe. Even a small €5 donation helps.
