Rehome a pet

Can you offer a home to an animal in our care?

Gonsal Farm Animal Centre

At any one time, Gonsal provides temporary homes to over 150 animals, many needing intense rehabilitation in preparation for rehoming and the chance to start new lives.

During a decade at our centre in Dorrington, staff have found new homes for over 10,000 animals ranging in size from a tiny hamster to a magnificent mare.

In 2015 Gonsal Farm Animal Centre rehomed 539 animals: 106 equines, 275 cats, 82 dogs, 40 rabbits and 36 other animals, including hamsters, birds and guinea pigs.

Changing so many animals' lives  makes it all worthwhile!  How can you help our work?

Gonsal Farm Equine Welfare and Rehabilitation Centre

At Gonsal Farm Equine Welfare and Rehabilitation Centre we can care for up to 50 horses and ponies at a time. We only take equines brought to us by our RSPCA inspectors so all the horses and ponies in our care have been victims of cruelty or neglect. 

When they are back to full health and recovering from their ordeal we prepare them for rehoming. This ranges from working on building a bond and gaining the trust of terrified, unhandled ponies, to getting them used to having a headcollar put on, groomed and having their feet picked up. It progresses to work from the ground, like teaching them how to lead or some are trained to be riding ponies.

Due to their past lives it can take quite a while to get the horses and ponies to the stage where they can be rehomed, as the most important thing is for them to learn to trust us.
