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.

Help us buy a secondhand mini digger

This June, after years of constant repairs, our ageing mini digger finally broke down completely. This secondhand machine was kindly donated in 2009 and quickly became our centre's most important piece of equipment.

Without it, vital daily tasks such as moving large hay bales and piling up manure have become incredibly physically difficult and time-consuming.

Our co-founder Rod Weeding has even been forced to dig some of the knee-deep trenches for our secure new boundary wall by hand – a difficult job for a 68-year-old pensioner.

We desperately need a replacement mini digger.

Brand new models are hugely expensive, so we're instead aiming to buy a good-quality secondhand mini digger for about €12,000. We believe a machine like this will serve us well for the next 10 years or more.

Incredibly, Spanish shoe company Pikolinos has very kindly made a major donation to help kick-start our fundraiser (the first such grant we've ever received).

Now we need your help to raise the rest. Even a small €5 donation truly does help, as it all collectively adds up. And all donors who contribute €200 or more will be publicly recognised in a sign on our boundary wall.

Help us save the horses who need us most – donate via the secure contribution box below.

Our very old and temperamental mini digger has finally broken down irreparably. Donate to help us replace this vital piece of machinery, which is needed daily for everything from moving large hay bales and piling up manure to digging holes for construction projects and repairing our stables.
