HOOVES Equine Welfare
Hooves was formed to support and co-ordinate the rehabilitation and rehousing of horses, donkeys and mules in the Klein Karoo, Western Cape. Those who may have been neglected, left behind, forgotten, mistreated or simply unable to be cared for by their owners.
Not all of these horses come from homes where they were not loved. In fact, a large percentage of horses are victims of drought in someparts of our country. Their families are suffering, livelihoods are being threatened and these equines are simply victims passed on by regretful owners. Others come from homes where their owners were simply not educated appropriately in the care or management of horses, mules and donkeys. Sadly, some do come from backgrounds of complete neglect, abandonment and careless breeding programs.
Operating in the Klein Karoo, Western Cape, South Africa we reach over 150 working horses, donkeys and mules excluding those in our Equine Sanctuary based in Calitzdorp.
With your support, we can continue to make a positive difference in the lives of horses, donkeys, mules and the people who depend on them.
