**Bransby Horses will not be processing new rehoming applications for the foreseeable future. We must protect our staff and you, our wonderful supporters during these uncertain times. If you have already applied via our Perfect Partner page please rest assured that your application will be kept on file. If a suitable match becomes available when we begin to rehome again, we will be in touch. We hope you understand and thank you for your continued support **
A letter to our Bransby Family Fosterers, 17 March 2020
Changes to Ways of Working (due to coronavirus outbreak in the UK).
As you will no doubt be aware, we are all entering a period of uncertainty. The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is affecting everyone to some degree and we have been closely monitoring the guidelines from The Government, as and when they have been released.
We are continually reviewing our contingency plans to help keep people and equines safe; this is our priority. In light of the updated guidance from The Government, that was released on Monday 16th March, we have decided to suspend rehoming visits for the moment. Our team is still available for telephone support so please feel free to call if you have any concerns and the team will be happy to give advice.
If you have a support visit scheduled soon, you will receive a call very soon regarding this.
Like you, as equine owners, we need to consider the health of ourselves and our animals. This is a very unpredictable time which can sometimes make it difficult to make firm plans. Have you got contingency strategy in place should you become ill?
Our friends at the British Horse Society have some useful tips which we want to share with you to help you: www.bhs.org.uk/advice-and-information/coronavirus-covid-19
We hope you understand why we have made this decision. We are committed to continuing to support you but need to reduce face-to-face contact where possible, to keep you, your family and our teams as safe and healthy as possible.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you do for your equines; you help us give each and every one of them get a second chance at a happy and healthy life and realise their potential. We can’t be with you in person at this time but please know we are here for you and are thinking of you all in this challenging period and doing everything we can our end to help.
Director of Equine Welfare, Bransby Horses
The Bransby Horses successful Friend for Life rehoming scheme offers some of our equines the chance to enjoy life in a carefully selected loan home, whilst freeing up time and space at the charity for the rescue and rehabilitation of more animals in need of help.
