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.

    This is the story of a very brave little pony called Faith who came to Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in 2010. Well actually it's about three little ponies and a dolphin!

    Luceiro was locked in a dark stable for months, and his injured eye later had to be surgically removed. Yet he remains a proud and incredibly beautiful horse.


Before you dump it, think about donating it

We gratefully accept donations of good-quality items including furniture, clothes and bric-a-brac to stock our charity shops.

Our shops are located across the Alicante province in southeastern Spain, at La Siesta, La Zenia, and Ciudad Quesada.

Why we need donations

Every euro we raise through our charity shops helps cover the hefty costs of food, medicine and equipment that our many rescued horses, ponies and donkeys need. Income from the shops is one of the main ways we can continue to fund our animal welfare work.

How to donate

Drop items off at your nearest Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre charity shop. Please don't leave donations outside the shop when we are closed as they could be stolen or ruined by the weather.

We offer a pick up service for large furniture and electrical items or white goods (which must be in working order). Phone +34 652 021 980 or email rescue@easyhorsecare.net.
