The Mare and Foal Sanctuary’s aims are to rescue neglected, unwanted or abused horses; but also when possible to rehabilitate, retrain and eventually rehome them into loving, knowledgeable environments. We also try to educate people on all aspects of horse welfare.

We are looking for regular and reliable volunteers to assist our yard staff at sites in Newton Abbot and Littlehempston. Experience is an advantage but the ability to learn quickly and follow instructions is of greater importance. An interest in animal welfare is desirable, compassion for animals is essential. Whilst grooming and handling the horses and ponies, volunteers learn about stable management and the care of these animals. There is also the opportunity to help at open days for the public.  Volunteers are welcome to come along and visit the sanctuary first or complete the application process and come along for a trial day and induction to see if it's for them.

For more information and an application form please email or call 01626 355 969.
