HorseWorld's adoption event is a big success

Animal rescue charity, HorseWorld held a special day for supporters who sponsor animals on their adoption scheme last Saturday. Over 400 people came to visit their ‘adopted’ animals at HorseWorld’s welfare department in Whitchurch, Bristol.

“The farm is not normally open to the public and many people were surprised to see how big it is.” Said Event Co-ordinator, Kim Pounsberry. “We do not often get the opportunity to show people the core rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work that we do, most of which happens on this farm. We displayed pictures of recent rescues and had a few of the horses available for people to see now that they are nursed back to health. Since the visitor centre closed in February, the animals based there have moved to the welfare department where they have much more space and are able to live in a more natural environment. This event was just for the people who sponsor animals on our adoption scheme but we hope to run more events like this for our widespread supporters in the future.”
