Urgent Appeal – Help us Reach Italy’s Frozen and Starving Horses and Donkeys
Starving, stranded and helpless. This is the reality facing hundreds of horses and donkeys across Italy today and we need your help to reach them as soon as possible.
Donate to this appeal
Make a one-off donation to help us make a difference.
Multiple earthquakes and disastrous weather conditions have left many of these animals without food, water or shelter – isolated in the deep snow, trapped in sub-zero temperatures and struggling to survive.
We’ve teamed up with The Donkey Sanctuary and have already sent urgent food supplies which will help those in the most desperate need but much more must be done.
With no sign of rising temperatures or improved conditions on the horizon, this is only the start of the rescue effort and with your support we will do everything we can to reach these poor stranded horses and donkeys.
Give today and help us bring warmth and care to this terrible situation.
*If donations exceed the amount needed for relief efforts, World Horse Welfare will use the generous donations for other emergencies to help horses in desperate need

#Brexit provides a welcome opportunity to improve #animalwelfare standards #Brexitandanimals
Around 80% UK animal welfare legislation comes from EU- it is vital we must retain all protections in light of #Brexit #BrexitandAnimals
