The horse sanctuary
The area dedicated to horses consists of 3 stables and houses a variable number of 10-13 horses.
Most of the animals have been confiscated by Save the Dogs as a result of serious mistreatments by their owners. The horses, in fact, are still widely used in Romania for pulling carts and transporting agricultural products and timber, especially in rural areas and in areas inhabited by Roma communities. Yet some of our guests have been entrusted to us by their owners because not in a good shape anymore or because of family issues.
The expenses for the maintenance of the horses and their stables are covered by a sponsorship program and by some foreign partners.
Our desire is to expand the project in the future in order to house even more horses in need, unfortunately very numerous in the area.
