Whilst maintaining social distancing! Staff – and some of the ponies – at Penny Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Lancashire, one of World Horse Welfare’s four centres around the country, yesterday joined with everybody else to show their support for our wonderful NHS and all other care and support givers during the Clap for our Carers.
World Horse Welfare, Britain’s largest horse rescue and rehoming charity recently announced that at 406, the number of horses in its care at its four Rescue and Rehoming Centres is the highest on record. Caring for such a large number of animals is putting extra demands on staff, in addition to complying with the rules on social distancing and the suspension of rehoming activities in light of movement restrictions to prevent Coronavirus.
Morale and team spirit remains extremely high amongst the grooms and other staff at the farms, and they wanted to take the time show their appreciation of the carers as well.
Most of these ponies are ready for rehoming. During the current coronavirus restrictions we are not able to rehome any of our horses, but we have many that are ready to be rehomed and we are still encouraging people to apply online for these on www.rehoming.worldhorsewelfare.org
so that as soon as restrictions are lifted, we can quickly continue with the process and make space in our farms for more horses that are in need.
