The incredible Pets at Home’s charity, Support Adoption For Pets, donated an awesome £20,000 for Hugs to buy our very own horsebox! The fab Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust also donated towards the box and the staff at Pets at Home in Bodmin are continuing to do an amazing job for us, raising funds as we are their Charity of the Year.
We are absolutely thrilled as this means we can undertake rescues and emergency vet visits more efficiently, take our equines to their new homes ourselves to wave a fond goodbye and do more welfare visits to care homes, schools and other organisations (once restrictions allow). It also means the money previously spent on hiring a horsebox can go towards things such as feed and specialist medication.
We have already taken several ponies to their forever homes and it’s so amazing to be able to wave them goodbye and see them settle with their new families. We are so proud of this charity, it’s wonderful team and all our fabulous supporters. Thank you to all for joining us on our mission to make positive changes to the lives of horses and humans!
