  • Need

    Need

    At the moment we have to hire and borrow horseboxes to pick up rescued horses and donkeys. This means it can be quite slow before we can get out to pick an animal up, and we have to try and plan vet trips in advance.

    Solution

    Having a horsebox will easily allow us to pick up horses, donkeys and larger animals that need rescuing. We also have to borrow a horsebox every time a horse needs to go into the vets. We can have quite a lot of veterinary care on site, but emergencies require the horses to be taken in. Having a horsebox will allow us to get horses to the vets in an emergency.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    -To collect large animals such as horses that need rescuing

    Activities

    » When we get a call to pick up an animal that needs rescuing we will be able to go straight away

    The success of this aim will be measured in the shorter time it takes to pick up rescued animals


    Aim 2

    -To transport large animals to the vet

    Activities

    » When we need to take a horse or larger animal in for veterinary treatment we will be able to do so without hiring a horsebox

    As above


    Aim 3

    -Take horses and donkeys out in the community to schools and retirement homes

    Activities

    » -We would like to get people interacting with animals to learn more about them

    As soon as we have the horsebox, we will start going out to local schools and retirement homes


  • Impact

    Impact

    Being able to transport animals will teach people in the community about how to care for them properly to avoid accidental neglect. It will also allow more horses to be picked up in emergencies and taken to the vet.

    Risk

    No risks

    Reporting

    We will email donors monthly about the project and keep them updated with how it is going. After the money has been raised, we will let them know how the horsebox has benefited Hopefield's animals.
