Support Andalusia’s Horses and Donkeys

There are a number of ways you can make a difference to the lives of Andalusia’s abused and mistreated equines. We rely on the support of animal lovers across the globe, our local community and businesses, and it is with your help that we continue to provide relief to horses, donkeys and ponies in need.

As a supporter or sponsor of ARCH you are ensuring a brighter future for every animal that comes into our care. Jill Newman Rogers

We also need help with admin work, marketing, fundraising and events, so even if you don’t want to get down and dirty with the horses, there are plenty of other ways to get involved.

This is an excellent way to raise much needed funds, whether it is through the Birthday Fundraiser function or through individual fundraisers, we really appreciate every penny raised for the equines in our care.

To start your own Facebook Fundraiser, go to the bottom of the list under ‘add to your post’ and choose ‘support non profit’ and then select ‘Centro Andalusí de Rescate de Caballos’ from the list of approved charities – all funds raised will go directly into our account.

Adopting/Fostering an ARCH Horse/Pony/Donkey

We try to ensure that your adopted animal is suited to your needs and you to theirs.

In the event that you decide to adopt or foster one of our animals in Andalusia, and you need help or advice on obtaining a Junta de Andalucía code (permit) to keep horses on your land, we will be glad to help. For those adopting further afield, we can also assist with recommending transportation companies and we will help ensure that all necessary paperwork for transportation is in order.

There is a small charge for an adoption which covers the charity’s costs, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract.  
We ask that you let us have regular photos or an update on how things are going.

Please be aware that if for any reason the adoption does not work it is a condition that you must offer the horse/pony or donkey back to ARCH so that we may try to find  another home. We ask that you do not sell or gift the animal without our knowledge, so that we may keep tabs on all rescued animals. 

If any adopted animal is considered to be ill treated or abused we will insist that it is returned to ARCH

Rehoming, fostering and adoption – Please Contact : Steffi Kersten:
