Charity Christmas Cards to help horses and donkeys


It's still early for Christmas cards and many charities are feeling the impact of COVID-19 so please either find another way to help and/or come back to this page, as I will keep updating it.

It's also worth taking a look at their gift and shop sections as many have wonderful virtual gifts giving working animals the help they need, whether it's veterinary treatment or water troughs, and educating young people about horse and donkey welfare.  And many charities run adoption schemes so that you can adopt a donkey or adopt a horse (or sponsor them, depending on the term used by the charity) and give adoption gifts.
