Based in the South West – Dept 24, Equine Rescue France offers advice and support for English speakers facing equine welfare issues. Working with key UK charities, ERF are able to campaign for welfare improvements, whether enforcing existing legislation or campaigning for change. By forging links with the key French associations, ERF are able to support their work as well as to instigate local actions.
ERF has often removed horses and donkeys from maltreatment then rehabilitated and re-homed them under long-term loan contracts. We are also able to advise individuals about horses and donkeys suffering from neglect. We have a system in place to ensure the appropriate authorities are swiftly contacted.
Fund raising is an important part of our work since, although our work is voluntary there are regular vets and farriers bills to be paid. Much needed funds are raised through fund-raising activities organised by volunteers, and donations are always welcome!
We regularly update this site with news and videos of our equines, welfare news and general information about caring for equines in France.
More information on supporting us can be found on our Donations page
Our association statuts can be found here.
Founded in 2007, Equine Rescue France is a not for profit association (Loi 1901) whose aim is to improve the welfare of equines in France through acting for individual equines in difficulty, campaigning to meet and improve the current regulations and equine welfare education. In addition, ERF bridges the gap between UK charities and other associations in France.
Equine Rescue France is accredited as a Member Society of the W.S.P.A (World Society for the Protection of Animals).
If you value the work we do at ERF, please donate so we can continue to help equines in France
