Help Us Save More Horses

Primitivo Horse Sanctuary is a 100% voluntarily funded organization. For every $1 you give, 63 cents goes directly to programmes supporting rescued horses. 
Right now, 4 cents is used to process your donation and 6 cents helps run Primitivo and our programmes. 27 cents goes towards raising the next $1 (which under our ten-year plan will fall – averaging out at 24 cents between 2020-2030).

Every donation provides medicine and nutritious food for rescued horses

When you donate to Primitivo, your generosity is immediately put to work helping rescue horses that would end up in slaughterhouses.

You can help save more lives during our rescue operations or give horses health treatments and nutritious food.​

We can’t do any of this without your support.

Please donate now.
