Welcome to the website of The Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses & donkeys. (Centro Andalusi de Rescate de Caballos).


Each year our charity rehabilitates and rehomes many equines brought to our centre.  The majority are cruelty cases confiscated by the police from abusive owners.  Many are subject to pending court cases against these owners and cannot be rehomed until these are resolved.  This puts a tremendous strain on our charity’s finances.  Due to the abuse they have suffered many require specialist veterinary care and even surgery to repair their injuries.  Many require special feed after suffering long term starvation.  Our charity is staffed by volunteers and we rely on fund raising  and donations to carry on our work.  We never refuse to take in an abused equine but we need your support.

What we do

Take a look at some of our favorite stories of success from the A.R.C.H. stables. Every equine in our care becomes part of our family and it is always a heart warming moment to see them re homed.


Show your support in any way you can. We’d love to invite you to volunteer down on the yard, gift a donation to assist with food and shelter or offer one of our equines a loving home.
