VERY URGENT- 30 Ponies in danger of slaughter (UK) – needing placements or homes before 19th December – please help!

Updated December 14, 2009 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, ponies.

On 5th December over 100 Welsh Mountain ponies ranging from this years foals to 2 year olds were auctioned at Conway, N Wales.
67 of the ponies were not sold and originally an agreement was made by the breeder to sell them at £3 each to the meatman.
They were to be collected on Monday 7th December.
The Meatman didn’t turn up and we have a short window of opportunity to get these ponies into homes or into sanctuaries.
There are currently 30 who have not got anywhere to go and the farmer has extended the time we have to place them to 19th December.
The ponies are unhandled.
The ponies are subject to a deposition order and have to be microchipped for passporting at a cost of £15.00 each before we can move them.
What we need is homes or placements (even if this is temporary) for the ponies,
help with transport and funds to cover the microchipping, gelding and passporting.
