Welcome to the Devon Horse and Pony Sanctuary
We are now on day five of this terrible weather but the animals are all fine and have plenty of hay, thank you to our volunteers who struggle every day to reach the animals and make sure they are all okay.
The Devon and Horse and Pony Sanctuary situated on Dartmoor has been caring for horses, ponies and donkeys since 1976. Since then many neglected, abused and homeless equines have found a secure and loving home until the end of their days. Suitable and rehabilitated animals are found caring new loan homes but are always able to return to the Sanctuary.
Sylvia and Terry Phillips started the Sanctuary which gained Charity status in 1980. They began the principle of maintaining a small and personal establishment, which allows for each animal to be cared for as an individual and given all the love and attention they deserve. Since the beginning many children and adults including the disabled and the disadvantaged have gained great benefit from close contact with our animals and we still see this as an important part of what we do.
Unfortunatly we are unable to have visitors to the Sanctuary at this time as we have many cases that require our helpers undivided care and attention.
