What We Do
KINDNESS. DIGNITY. RESPECT. HELPING PEOPLE & ANIMALS.
The Hugs Foundation has multiple aims. To not only provide a rescue and rehabilitation centre for horses, ponies and other animals that have been abandoned or abused. But also, to offer unique intervention and alternative support, using some of the rescued horses and ponies, to help children, young people and to those suffering from poor mental health. Our services are delivered by professionally qualified, experienced staff.
In addition, we also visit care homes to support mental well-being outside of the farm facilities and help educate on animal welfare.
