Tenerife Horse Rescue challenge to support abused and abandoned animals

Tenerife Horse Rescue, an animal sanctuary located in the South of the island, is organizing the biggest virtual physical activity challenge during the month of March called “The Animal March: 80 miles in March”. It encourages participants to walk, run or jog 80 miles to raise funds for the more than 500 animals being cared for at Tenerife Horse Rescue, who are hoping to raise 30,000 euros to pay for a recent purchase of 30,000 square metres of land.

"The need for the animals on the island is so great that we have no choice but to expand Tenerife Horse Rescue's land in order to continue our work," says Emma Greenfield, founder of the sanctuary, "This is why the fundraiser it is so important to our sanctuary. We knew we had to do something big, that had never been done before, spread the word about our campaign and get the community on our side, while having fun!”

Tenerife Horse Rescue provides a safe sanctuary in the municipality of Arico for all animals, from horses to pigs, turtles, guinea pigs and even a bearded dragon, that have been rescued from being mistreated and abused.

Built from the ground up over four years using recycled materials and clay, the sanctuary prides itself on giving animals a second chance, living in harmony with a thriving team of volunteers who live sustainably.

Hundreds of animal lovers on the island, and around the world, have already signed up for the challenge, ready to walk, run, jog or cycle in the name of animal welfare and saving the planet. Local businesses including Decathlon and Canary Green are also getting involved, connecting many people in the community with a shared love of animals.
