Worldwide Charities Dedicated to the Care of Horses


ILPH - International League for the Protection of Horses
Reg Charity:
The mission of the ILPH is to protect horses from abuse and alleviate their suffering by rehabilitating, campaigning and educating worldwide. Their vision is a world where the horse is used by never abused. The ILPH works hard to improve the welfare standards of horses being transported and exported for slaughter; it runs four recovery and rehabilitation centres in the UK - where abused and neglected horses are cared for and rehomed, wherever possible, in loving homes; and it works with communities in the developing world to provide education to improve the general welfare of equines.

Redwings Horse Sanctuary
Reg Charity: 1068911
Redwings Horse Sanctuary was established in 1984 and is the UK's largest horse charity, with more than 1200 equines in its direct care and working to save horses, ponies, donkeys and mules whose future would otherwise be bleak. We investigate cases of cruelty countrywide and offer advice to horse owners. Our work is funded entirely through donations.

Every year we provide a safe, secure home for rescued animals who, through no fault of their own, have fallen upon difficult times and are in great need of our help and care. Whatever their story, we do everything within our power to help them.The Charity’s base, which is in Norfolk, includes our specialist veterinary team and equine hospital, welfare team, equine reception, rehabilitation and rehoming teams and administration. We currently have Visitor Centres in Norfolk, Suffolk and Warwickshire and are a nationwide organisation. As a charity our work is funded wholly by donations from individuals such as yourself. With your support we can achieve more.
There are many ways you can help – you may like to make a one off donation, set up a regular standing order payment, adopt one of horses or make a purchase from our extensive range of gifts. Whichever way you choose to help, we thank you.
