Tune In To Hugs TV’s A Daily Hug via Facebook Live
Tune in Daily at 9am
Hugs TV’s A Daily Hug has been launched during the Coronavirus outbreak to help keep our participants and supporters positive and give them some things to do that could perhaps also be helpful with the absence of school and improve social inclusion whilst adhering to the social distancing restrictions.
Tune in at 9am on Facebook Live daily to see what we are up to and take part in the daily challenges and activities. Please excuse us if we are running a bit late due to mischief makers on the farm! 💚
Primrose is very excited by it all and can’t wait to meet everyone!
Sponsor an Animal
Sponsoring an animal is a very rewarding experience. Knowing that you are directly contributing to that animals safety and welfare is a fantastic feeling.
At The Hugs Foundation we are passionate about our relationships and connections with our supporters. Sponsoring an animal brings you closer to the cause and closer to The Hugs Foundation.
Your Sponsorship Goes Further
The animal that you sponsor helps us deliver another of our main aims. To offer therapeutic interventions using some of the rescued horses, ponies and other animals to children, young people and to those suffering from poor mental health. So the power of your sponsorship goes further.
Leave a Legacy
Leaving a legacy will mean your memory can continue to make a difference to the lives of horses, children and the local community, who benefit from Hugs.
The Difference Your Gift Makes
At Hugs we witness, first hand, the problems both animals and humans face. We are privileged to have our amazing facility, animals and expert staff here to help and support people in need. Your gift will enable us to carry on with the work we do below.
We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted and neglected horses and ponies and are home to a lot of other farm and domestic animals too. Here at Hugs, we have designed a unique rehabilitation programme (for those that are suitable) that gives them a purpose and ongoing rehabilitation and training. The programme allows some of our ponies to visit care homes, schools and events to give back to the community and educate in animal welfare, care and mental health. The experiences they give people are invaluable, our animals bring a sense of calm, something to look forward to that’s different from normal routine, and increased feelings of happiness and sociability.
We also provide a therapeutic and supportive intervention to children and young people suffering mental ill health. Our facilities and rescue animals allow us to create a unique intervention using a diverse range of therapeutic activities in a natural environment. Benefits include; increased sociability, improved self-esteem, positive re-integration back into school, re-engagement and building family relationships and decreased negative behaviours and suicidal thoughts.
