Welcome to Refuge RR

Willy and Mikey Throughout history man has measured a horse's worth by what the horse could do for man. Horses have provided transport, done hard labor, carried soldiers into battle, performed as athletes and entertainers and have provided pleasure to millions. Somewhere along the way man has forgotten the true value of the horse…

As we watch our horses just being horses, we can truly appreciate their intrinsic value. They are awesome creatures to behold. We are often awestruck by their bravery and their loyalty to each other and we are inspired daily by their intelligence, curiosity and playfulness.

We feel we are indebted to these magnificent beings. So, on behalf of mankind, Refuge RR is giving back that which should never have been taken away, their freedom, and providing them with the protection that is owed to them.

Online Fundraiser to help Refuge RR's animals!
Written by Sylvie Leboeuf   
Monday, 09 May 2016 21:15

Hi everyone,

As always, Refuge RR’s animals need you and it is completely normal. The refuge is a charitable organisation and as all charity, the refuge works with donations and fundraisers only, and we receive occasionally a donation from a foundation.

With a great number of animals with over 75 being equines (horse’s family), food cost is high and as we say, money doesn’t grow on trees. If it would be the case, our backyard would be full of them (as yours would too :-) ) and we wouldn’t need you, our dear donors and public.

We invite you to click on the image below to go to our online fundraiser page “Help Refuge RR”.

All profit will go directly to feed the animals. Please be generous for the love of these magnificent animals and invite your family, your friends and everyone you know to do the same.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Sugar our little miracle horse was sponsored by Linda Graetz along with 3 bunnies during the Comedy Nest fundraiser event! Thank you so much Linda! Sugar nearly died and against all odds and vet opinions she survived (see pictures) and now she is sponsored and happy (so are the 3 bunnies) at Refuge RR. A lot of other animals would love to be sponsored.
