Trusts and Foundations

Donations from Trusts and Foundations provide us with vital income for our work with rescued horses and ponies. We would be delighted to hear from any Trust that might be interested in supporting us.

We are committed to working with Trusts on an individual basis and are always happy to provide updates on the progress of our rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming activities and specifically on work that has received direct funding.

We are always happy for Trust representatives to visit our farms around Devon to see what we do first hand.

If you would like to speak to us about making a Trust donation, please contact our fundraising team on 01626 882 660 or email


The Postcode Local Trust

Support Adoption for Pets

The Hedley Foundation

The Postcode Local Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of The Postcode Lottery. The Sanctuary received £19,999 from the Trust to help us with our sustainability project ‘Look to Longer Term’ which focuses on combating climate change, by adopting ways that contribute to sustaining the living planet, at each of our six sanctuaries across Devon. Read more about this project here.

We are so grateful for support from Laura at Support Adoption for Pets (pictured) and the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust for their help in funding our Yelverton Sanctuary.

We would like to thank The Hedley Foundation who have awarded £1,000 to purchase equipment for our Outdoor Learning Education Programme at Coombe Park.

The Hedley Foundation seek to help and improve the quality of life for people in the UK, and we know that spending time outdoors, in nature, is good for health, happiness and wellbeing.

Petplan Charitable Trust

Thank you to the support of Petplan Charitable Trust who granted us £5,000 towards a high intensity care unit at our Coombe Park Sanctuary. This new build will benefit our retired horses and ponies who have complex health care needs.

Founded in 1994, the Petplan Charitable Trust (PCCT) has a simple mission to promote the health and welfare of animals in the UK and beyond.
