SANTA POLA Council has strengthened its relationship with the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre after meeting with co-founder Sue Weeding and local business supporters.
Councillor for Urbanisation Gran Alacant, Loreto Cascales, has pledged the council’s support towards the Rojales centre in recognition of their work to prevent animal cruelty and neglect in the Alicante Province.
“They have given our information to the Local Police so now if there is a situation involving horses and donkeys in their area, we can be sure that we will be informed very quickly,” Sue said: “We were also very impressed to learn that the council banned circuses with animals two years ago, as well as any type of bullfighting or running with the bulls.
It’s great to know the council is so forward-thinking and supportive when it comes to animal welfare issues.” Sue thanked the Gran Alacant community for their tremendous support over the past few years, especially the volunteers who regularly muck out stables and the group donating their time in the new Gran Alacant charity shop, which opened in July.
The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre welcomes any donations and sponsorships to help support their work.
