Unless we can secure funding to help with new premises we will be forced to permanently close CESF Horse Rescue.
We are being forced out of our current home by the bank who we were purchasing from. After signing the reservation contract and being given permission to move in whilst the sale was going through, we were later informed that the bank has actually sold the property as part of it´s debt portfolio and we must move out. We have taken legal advice and told we have a case, but we cannot afford to fight a bank, and could we even win? So we are now desperately looking for a new home and suitable land for the Rescue.
At the moment we are having to turn down requests to help horses, donkeys and dogs in need. Finding an affordable property to buy or rent, a home for ourselves and our daughter, but large enough to accommodate the rescues, is incredibly difficult and extremely stressful.
We dont know the exact date we have to move but it could only be a matter of weeks.
We have currently found 3 potential properties, all with a minimum of 10.000 square metres of land for the animals and a basic house to renovate for ourselves. We will need to carry out a lot of work to make any of these properties liveable for us and the horses, and we will need YOUR help to make it happen.
What is necessary?
Firstly we actually need to secure a property - deposits, legal fees etc. Then the work needed for the Rescue will be divided into stages
Fencing & Shelters
None of the land has any fencing so we will need a full perimeter fence as well as internal paddocks. We want the horses to be able to live in a herd, with space to graze, roam and play, exactly as nature intends.
We will need to build shelters for them as well as a hay storage area.
We will also need strong fencing and shelter for a new pig enclosure.
Stabling and isolation boxes
To obtain a large explotation licence (to keep more than 5 horses) we will need a quarantine stable and separate storage for feed etc. We would also like to have additional stabling for injured animals and a tack room.
CESF Horse Rescue is based near Huercal Overa, Almeria, Spain. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses and any other animal in need. We have been running privately since 2017 and will become a registered nonprofit when we secure our new premises. So far we have helped horses, donkeys, pigs and cats and have fostered dogs and puppies for local dog charities. We have recently been asked by schools to provide visits to educate children about the Rescue and Animal welfare and we want to be able to offer educational programmes.
