FACILITIES FOR OUR RESCUES

Equestrian Rescue Centre

The Wet Nose Equestrian Centre is a new Unit of Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre, brought about by the necessity of rescuing horses, donkeys and farm animals in despair.

Wet Nose started rescuing horses a few years ago, but in October 2019, we were finally able to start our very own Equine Rescue Centre with a stable yard and proper facilities for our rescues. With our new facility we are able to take better care of our  animals as well as take advantage of new facilities in order to generate some of the much needed income for our rescues. Join us on our rescue mission and support these ventures and in so doing you will be helping us to continue rescuing animals in despair for many years to come.

DO THE RIGHT THING

Become a Stable Sponsor

Becoming a stable sponsor means that you donate a monthly amount, whatever you can afford, and it goes towards the upkeep of one of the horses in our care. You will be assigned a stable and your name will go up as that horses sponsor. You will receive regular feedback on the horse currently in your stable and not only become a Sponsor Hero, but also a part of our equine family. Your monthly contributions are even tax deductible and you may request a Section 18A tax certificate when needed.

All donations are appreciated, however, being a stable sponsor means that we know how much will be coming in at the end of the month and we can budget the Equine Rescue Centre accordingly, making this the best possible way to assist.

Other Sponsorship Opportunities
Various sponsorships options are available for sponsoring arena’s, benches, shelters, paddocks etc. where your company name can be displayed and will be of value not only to our rescue horses, but also to your company in terms of showing others that you care. To find out more about a mutually beneficial sponsorship, contact Kobus at inspector1@wetnose.co.za

All donations are sponsorships are tax deductible. Please ask us for your Section 18A Tax Certificate if required.

Volunteer

Volunteers are always welcome at Wet Nose.

You do not have to be a horsey person to volunteer at our Equine unit as there are many other things that we need help with. Whether it is cleaning paddocks, stables, grooming horses, making the garden pretty or even doing some painting of paddock poles, there is always something that needs to be done.

Our rescue darlings also love to be treated with carrots and apples, so don’t forget the treats!

HELP US HELP THEM

Report Abuse

Abuse, and especially neglect of horses, donkeys and farm animals is rife. Most of the time people are ignorant on how to care for their  animals and education is desperately needed. Sometimes, owners just  cannot afford to take care of their animals and don’t know where to  turn.
 
Our Animal Welfare Inspector has the authority under the hand of the  Magistrate to intervene or educate,  depending on what the situation calls
for, however, we rely on you, the  public, to let us know when  intervention or education is needed.
 
Please do not think that someone else will do something. It is as simple as popping us an email with the details of where and what the situation is, and we will take it from there. Your name will never be  revealed to the owner, so there is absolutely no reason to turn a blind  eye. Help us to help them.

donkey

Wet Nose rescued this baby  donkey who had been left lying next to the road for a week with a broken leg. She had been hit by a car and no-one reported it.
She suffered unnecessarily, not only from pain but also from hunger and dehydration. Don’t wait a week, inform us so that we can help.

A pin location is the best way to help us get the rescue fast and effectively!!!!!

Does your groom REALLY know how to take care of your horses?
