About this cause

Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary began at Stapleford Abbots in 1983 after over 100 horses were left on the bleak Rainham marshland. As the water inlets flooded, they became cut off resulting in 13 horses dying in the most awful conditions. We have since had several homes and have been at our current 40 acre former post war dairy farm at Buttsbury, Ingatestone, Essex since 1993. We provide lifetime help and care for around 200 animals (principally horses, but also some ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs & cows), who are victims of physical and mental abuse, as a result or ignorance or malicious intent. The animals are our prime concern and are treated with the utmost respect.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We host visits from schools, disabled groups and other interested groups. We hold public open days 1 per month from May to October. We visit old people's homes and schools to give talks on the animals in our care. We are also a resource centre offering training and seminars on animal welfare and holistic care. We offer work placements and support the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
