THE future looks bright for a local horse rescue charity after it gained foundation status.
Sue and Rod Weeding, the founders of Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre (EHCRC), have announced that they have signed the deeds for foundation status. This means that they can now become even more serious players in the world of horse rescue and animal welfare throughout Spain, as well as lobbying at the European Parliament, they explained.
Sue has recently travelled to London and met Baroness Mallalieu, the chairperson of the All Party Parliamentary Group for horses. Speaking with her at the palace of Westminster Sue got to tell the Baroness about the work they are doing in Spain and her plans for campaigning for better horse welfare.
Sue said: “She was very interested in the work we do as she lobbies for horse welfare in the EU and she said she will help and advice us in any way she can.”
Rod and Sue have gifted their premises in Rojales to the foundation and are happy in the knowledge that they have permanently secured the rescue centre’s future which is currently home to 51 horses, ponies and donkeys. There will also be a second rescue centre opening soon at Villa Vera, Daya Vieja.
Sue said, “Excitingly there are many new professional people joining the team bringing with them invaluable skills that are needed in creating a successful organisation. This will ensure the continuous growth of the EHCRC Foundation and ultimately achieving our aim of eliminating the suffering and abuse of horses across Spain.”
