News

Welcome to Tenerife horse rescue blog page

Here each Monday you can read up on our latest news, opinions, stories as blog posts. Written by our team, volunteers and helpers who have something important to say.

We will keep you up to date with horse rescue and animal news and stories. Some happy and some sad but always full of truth and written from the heart.

We are very passionate about what we do and what we believe in. So we enjoy sharing it all with you about our latest building updates or our new rescues that join our animal sanctuary.
You can read more about each animal on their personal profile on the meet the animals‘” page. Or sponsor them on our patreon page for behind the scenes updates.
Don’t forgot to keep up to date with pictures and fun videos. You can follow us on our instagram or tiktok account as well @Tenerifehorserescue
