Unless we can secure funding to help with new premises we will be forced to permanently close CESF Horse Rescue
Due to the loss of our premises, we are currently having to turn down
requests to help horses, donkeys and dogs in need and soon we will be
without a home. Finding an affordable property to buy or rent, large
enough to accommodate the rescues, has been incredibly difficult and
Now we have the opportunity to purchase a property with 17.000 sq
metres of land AND a huge barn. It has amazing potential, BUT we do
not have the funds to obtain the mortgage and carry out the necessary
work to make it suitable for the animals.
What work is necessary?
The Barn renovation
This will house the quarantine stables for new rescues, storage room
for feed and tack and a space for volunteers and visitors with
kitchenette and seating.
As you can see from the photos, the existing barn has huge potential (and it is huge!), but it is going to take time, money and volunteers to turn it into the building we need. We need electricity and water installations, internal stables and repairs to the walls and floor.
Fencing & Shelters
The land does not have any fencing so we need a full perimeter fence
as well as an internal paddock and shelters. The horses will be able
to live in a herd, with space to graze, roam and play, exactly as
nature intends. We also need fencing for a new pig enclosure. We can
use an existing shed for their shelter.
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 if 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 with the new premises we will be able to conduct public visits and offer educational programmes.

A Huge Ask
It is a huge ask but to all of our supporters, our friends, our families, our followers and to all their friends, please help us to raise the €20.000 we need to make this a reality. Or €150.000 to purchase the property outright and carry out the works (we can dream!)
Can any businesses help? Our sponsorship rewards could include a banner/billboard space at a great roadside location, links to your website, social media mentions and links…
