Animal welfare establishments

Call for licensing of rescue centres and sanctuaries.

Call for licensing of rescue centres and sanctuaries.

Protecting vulnerable equines 

There is currently no specific legislation in the UK to ensure that rescue centres and sanctuaries meet minimum standards. While Scotland has promised to introduce legislation in the near future, England and Wales have failed to make the same commitment.  

While many of these establishments are run by dedicated and knowledgeable people who put the welfare of their equines first, this is unfortunately not always the case. Licensing of equine rescue centres and sanctuaries will help ensure these vulnerable animals are given the protection they deserve.
