THE Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in Rojales has gone international.
After months of hard work, Easy Horse Care Rescue Switzerland is now an officially registered and recognised charity.
This means that fundraising can be carried out for the charity and horses re-homed there.
The news comes at a time when the Rescue Centre needs more support and funds than ever, with over 120 horses, ponies and donkeys in their care.
Co-founder Sue Weeding could not contain her excitement at what the future could now hold for the animals she and her husband Rod care so passionately for.
“Easy Horse Care Rescue in Switzerland will enable us to re-home many horses from Spain to a good place,” she said.
Sue believes it is an ideal country for her rescued horses to enjoy a new life, as Switzerland is financially secure, has grass, clean air and very good animal welfare laws.
“We feel incredibly lucky and honoured to be given this opportunity,” she said.
One Rojales horse, Lawrence, is already on his way to a new life in Switzerland.
His story inspired Jasmin Imfeld from Switzerland, who spent a working holiday at the Centre and fell in love with what Sue and Rod are doing.
She helped to set up the association in her home country and will now act as Easy Horse Care Rescue Switzerland’s president.
“I just feel we are going to be able to do so much more to help horses and give them a good life” added Sue.
Home checks will be carried out in Switzerland and the association reserves the right to take an animal back if they feel it is not being cared for correctly.
