Ponies like Purdie can be long lived - upwards of 30 years or more. This is a long commitment and the every day bills including bedding, feed and the most basic of vet care are high. Equines like Purdie who cannot work are often euthanised or abandoned as they are considered an expensive luxury if they cannot perform a role. According to the British Horse Society, only 9% of UK Equines will meet a natural death. With your support we can ensure Purdie and others like her will always have somewhere to call home and that she is valued for who she is, not her usefulness to people.
Purdie's care is so important because her home is at Raystede. Becoming a sponsor means you can help us provide the care she needs to stay happy and healthy for the rest of her life. Your contribution will help us to continue rescuing and caring for horses, ponies and donkeys in need.
A sponsorship also makes an ideal gift for animal lovers.
THANK YOU for helping to look after Purdie and her other equine friends!
