We can’t thank Elise Pilkington Trust enough, having supported our charity several times, with grants towards capital items. We have recently taken purchase of a lovely Horse Trailer and a tractor with a grant from them. Both massively important for the running of the charity, to which we are forever grateful. We run solely on donations with nobody taking a wage or expenses so that every penny goes to the welfare of the animals. Both these items have already made a big difference to us.


New Years day our Biggest resident, George was found lying unwell in the field, he got up briefly, but soon lay back down, he was brought down to the yard and the vet called out immediately. 

The lovely Ben from Leahurst attended him very quickly and initially treated him for Colic, Colic is a broad term for tummy pain, which can be caused by minor things, such as wind, but can also be caused by much more severe illness or disease. Unfortunately for George, it is the latter in his case.

He was admitted into the amazing Phillip Leverhulme Equine Hospital within an hour and following all diagnostic tests and scans, they are unsure what is making him so unwell, however, his kidneys aren’t working well, he is very dehydrated, has a low white cell count and protein levels, so all in all, a very poorly boy.

The initial problem to combat is the dehydration, so he has been hooked up to IV fluids and they will keep assessing his bloods over the next 24-48 hours, looking for any signs of improvement or deterioration, however, at this time it is 50/50 whether he will pull thru.

As always, we have told the hospital to do anything he needs, which comes at a price, just the first 24 hours alone, are estimated to cost £2000 – £3000. If you are able to donate even £1 each, towards George’s care we would be ever so grateful and providing he pulls thru, he will be more than happy to kiss and cuddle anyone who helps him, as he really is the loveliest boy, with a lot of love to give.

To the amazing team at Support Adoption for Pets, Pets at Home, particularly our partner store, Wallasey and all of their supporters and customers, who all make it possible for Support Adoption for Pets, to help charities, like us, make a huge difference to the lives of unwanted, neglected or abandoned animals.

You, our supporters, will be well aware, that we have had huge struggles this year, from unexpected and significant vet bills, like when the awesome team at Leahurst saved Pollyanna’s life, against all odds. We have battled with food and bedding bills from the beginning of the year, being wetter than normal and then the Summer being dryer than normal, adding huge costs to our usual outgoings.

We have spent many a day wondering how on earth we would carry on, but those who know and support us, know that we would do anything for the animals, including going without ourselves.

We can breath a little, thanks to a lovely grant, for a whopping £15,000!!!!! This grant is to be used to pay outstanding vet and supplier bills and will put us in a much better place. Our current monthly running costs are in the region of £8000 per month, so we still need our supporters to donate if they can, adopt a pony/sheep/bunny, attend our sales and events, buy our auction items and share our posts, every small gesture adds up to making a big difference to the lives of defenceless animals.

Thank you so much Support Adoption for Pets, Pets at Home and all of our truly fabulous supporters.
