You can help! Just €5.00 a person!
We could really use your support with the biggest expense of caring for all the equines that were lucky to find hope and sanctuary at the premises of the Hellenic Society for Equine Welfare (HSEW).
We need your help as we care for the equines that have found a new life and shelter at HSEW. Each of our 18 animals has his or her own personalized diet that helps to ensure they are kept at their optimal weight and helps to keep them healthy and strong. Can you please help us by pitching in for hay for the horses and donkeys in our care? Any amount pledged absolutely helps! Each bale of hale is €5.00 so if each person gave just €5.00 that would be wonderful.
Your generous donation helps HSEW to continue with its promise to Rescue, Rehabilitate and offer Refuge to horses, mules and donkeys in need throughout Greece.
Based upon previous years consumption we know that we need around 4,000 bales of hay per year for this number of animals, so we really have to raise €10,000.00 to see us through the next 6 months. We have managed so far but the challenges ahead of us are daunting especially when considering the health and economic consequences of the gloval pandemic COVID-19. We are confident that we can do this, there are a lot of supporters of HSEW out there and if each one of you gave just €5.00 we can at least guarantee the animals feed for the next few months.
Help us Help Horses
You can make the difference in so many precious lives by helping us continue to provide the specialized care and loving support to all the animals rescued by HSEW. We can ensure that each one is given the opportunity to heal, thrive and ultimately lead a happy and peaceful life with us or with their new loving family.
THANK YOU for saving a life today!
We are a non-profit association registered in Greece. Founded in 2006 our purpose has been to protect equines from abuse and abandonment and to alleviate their suffering, while at the same time educating the Greek people on how to treat and care for them properly.
Although their numbers may fluctuate, we currently have 18 animals at our premises (horses and donkeys). In the past 2 years alone, we have collected and confiscated more than 25 animals and have processed more than 100 complaints of abuse. The ongoing economic crisis and lack of knowledge from owners regarding horses wellbeing unfortunately means that in many instances we have to seize the animals from their owners. If these horses (donkeys, mules) do not come to HSEW there is nowhere else for them to go.
As we do not own our own private premises, our rescued animals are accommodated in the facilities we have rented in Markopoulo at a monthly fixed cost. The biggest and most basic expenses of our operation are:
• Hay for horses + special feed
• Rent and maintenance of facilities
• Medicines for horses and general veterinary care (icluding farriery)
Our association depends solely on private financial contributions from our members, adoptions, sponsors, and donations. We have never received financial support from the State (Ministry of Rural Development), from European Union programs or from similar organizations abroad. Our entire operation, the rescue, and care of all animals, is solely supported by a handful of volunteers and some private initiative funding.
