Sadly Hope had to be euthanised yesterday due to a fast growing, and very painful, cancerous growth on her face. RIP Hope

Hope was surrendered into our care late last year. Her previous owner has provided some information, but we have yet to get to know her in the short time she has been with us.

Hope has proved very willing to come for food, but we have not yet attempted to put a halter on her.

We have been advised that Hope is underweight as she has a medical blood condition, but no specifics were given. Follow up with her previous vet will be needed to obtain details. She is in very poor condition, with rain scald, mange and dermatophilus apparent.

Given the above, poor Hope clearly needs the care of a person experienced with a variety of horses.
DCH horse carers are also asked to
* own at least one other horse
* have the time and finances to support an extra horse
* have the space available for 6 months to over a year
* not be moving properties in the near future

If you believe you can help DCH with Hope (and perhaps with Curly, who finds herself in the same situation) please email or call for full details.

Animals in our Care

These animals have been rescued from various pounds and shelters by volunteer Foster Carers who provide the animal with a safe haven until they can be permanently rehomed. They are located throughout Sydney, Australia.

Please note that descriptions of breed, age and size are given in good faith and are based on assessment of the animal's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age and breed of any animal listed.

Also have a look at our Horses in Care pages for more horses available for adoption.
