Asociacion Eco Vida. Helping the less fortunate in society for the past 5 years

Eco Vida are proud to help the Easy Horse Care Centre

"Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives."

"We set up our Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre near the little town of Rojales in the province of Alicante, along Spain’s Mediterranean coastline.

We now care for more than 90 horses, ponies and donkeys saved from abuse and neglect, plus a menagerie of other rescued animals, including dogs, cats, parrots, chickens, geese, Ernie the turkey and Isadora the pig.

We believe that when you love an animal, you fight to save it. They may be old crocks and broken down and disabled or whatever, but for the abuse they’ve suffered and survived, they deserve a second chance."

Lobbying against animal abuse in Spain

"We are determined to help push for the better treatment of animals in Spain and constantly lobby authorities to change laws and punish those who abuse animals.

We believe the tipping point came in 2010 with the case of Captain and Hope, two skeletal horses left to die inside a pitch-black garage.

The dreadful condition of these horses attracted major media attention and amid intense community lobbying, police finally acted.

A man was later jailed in what is believed to be the first such prosecution in Spain – and authorities have been on our side ever since."
