Register your horses with World Horse Welfare to safeguard their future
Leaving your horses to World Horse Welfare in your Will is one way you can be certain that they will continue to receive love and care should you die before them.
In order for us to take ownership of your horse(s) and find them loving new homes through our Rehome a Horse scheme should you die before them, you will need to leave them to us in your Will, as they cannot be signed over to us after your death.
We ask you to inform us of your intentions and register your horses with us by completing an Equine Details Form for each horse you want to leave to us. This is your opportunity to tell us information about your horse – any medical history or injuries, its feeding regime, present work routine and equally as important, what you see as its future prospects including rider experience recommendation: no-one knows your horse as well as you do. Please add anything that you think is relevant as we know that all horses are different.
A photograph of each horse is required with their form and a copy of the sections of your Will relating to World Horse Welfare – this information will be held in your personal, confidential file and never disclosed to any third party.
We also ask that anyone registering their horses with us becomes and remains a member and enjoys the benefits of being closer to World Horse Welfare for as long as their horses are registered with us. This membership income helps to ensure that our work to improve the lives of horses around the world can continue and that we will still be here should your horses ever need us in the future.
Finally, we would be so grateful if you would consider leaving us a financial pledge towards our work. Such funds help us cover the immediate costs of bringing your horses into one of our Rescue and Rehoming Centres, the costs of their care and any rehabilitation work (if needed) while we find suitable new homes. A gift will help us care for the next generation of horses who will need our help.
Once we have received all the necessary information to register your horses we will post you a certification of registration for you to keep.
Calls may be recorded for training purposes
By giving your details, you agree to us contacting you to keep you up-to-date with our work and fundraising. if you would ever like to change the way you hear from us, please call +44(0)1953 497239 or email email@example.com. We may process your data internally to help inform our fundraising or charitable activities, enabling us to help more horses. We value our supporters and guarantee that your details will never be shared with third parties.
We regret that due to the logistics involved, we can only accept horses into our UK Rescue and Rehoming Centres who are resident on mainland UK. The only exceptions to this are the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Orkney Islands, Shetland Islands, Inner Hebrides and Outer Hebrides.
Please note: We can only guarantee to take registered horses upon the death of their owner and not for any other reason. Due to the number of requests we receive, all other requests are considered strictly on welfare grounds.
