Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and lifetime care for over 200 horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats and cats near Ingatestone in Essex.
The Sanctuary provides a safe environment for these animals that have been victims of physical and mental abuse, whether because of ignorance or malicious intent.
Sue Burton founded the Sanctuary in 1983 following the plight of the horses on Rainham Marshes in Rainham, Essex, where over 100 horses were left on the bleak marshland. As the water inlets flooded, they became cut off resulting in 13 horses dying in the most awful conditions.

Help us raise £10,000 in donations via fundraising pages to support the running of the Remus Horse Sanctuary, which provides lifetime help and care for horses, ponies and donkeys, many of which are aged between 30 and 45 years old.
