Donate your leftover currency to SAFE

Founded in winter 2014, SAFE (Saving Abandoned Fly-Grazing Equines) was established in response to a local crisis when 38 horses and ponies were left abandoned in a field in Binfield, Berkshire. SAFE is run by a small group of horse- loving volunteers across Berkshire and Surrey. They give up their time on a regular basis to help horses and ponies who have been abandoned or neglected, keeping them ‘SAFE’ and away from harm. The fundamental objectives of the organisation are the 3 R’s – Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome.

The horses come into the care of SAFE with a range of health issues, frightened and timid having had little or no human contact. The volunteers look after them, gain their trust over time and with the help of vets and farriers, nurse them back to a full bill of health.

Despite Berkshire & Surrey being home to many prestigious equine establishments and events there are surprisingly many horses in this area needing the help of SAFE. All of the major equine rescue and re-homing organisations in England and Wales are under immense pressure due to the increasing number of horses and ponies needing their help.

These charities will soon be physically unable to cope with the number of horses needing urgent care but for as long as funds and voluntary assistance are available, SAFE will continue its work to rehabilitate rescued horses until they are healthy and suitable for re-homing.
