Many of the horses that are at the Haven have been rescued or surrendered to us. The incidences of abuse, neglect, and abandonment of both horses and children in the Western Cape is unacceptably high. Tom Ro Haven is addressing these issues. By rescuing and rehabilitating horses and using them to help children.
We receive numerous phone calls to rescue more horses. But we cannot take them because of our lack of funds to look after them.
The horses we have at Tom Ro Haven are a very small percentage, and an example of what we could do and achieve. This is merely the tip of the iceberg. We are more determined and enthusiastic than ever before.
