Adorable donkey Dotty is our Adoption Star of the Month!
By shopping with Redwings, you're helping us care for our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules!
On Thursday 12 January, ten horses were seized from the Paper Mill Lane site in Bramford, Ipswich. The horses were removed on welfare grounds as certified by a Redwings veterinary surgeon and with support from the RSPCA, Suffolk County Council and the police.
Following reports of concern at the beginning of the year for a group of horses, Redwings and the RSPCA visited on Thursday 05 January. An improvement notice was issued for several horses identified as being of particular concern to the charities’ inspectors and field officers.
Six horses have now been taken in by Redwings and will be receiving care from their veterinary teams. The remaining four have been taken in by the RSPCA. However, this is now an active investigation and therefore Redwings and the RSPCA are unable to provide further details about the case.
This case is separate to the owner of the majority of tethered horses on the Paper Mill Lane site. Talks to establish a long-term management plan for these horses remain ongoing between the owner, the landowner, Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Police, the RSPCA and Redwings.
Anyone with new welfare concerns or concerns for any equine can call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 or Redwings Horse Sanctuary on 01508 firstname.lastname@example.org.
