Horse Care Unit to the rescue!

Airwolf when we first found him . . .

Thanks to expert action by our Horse Care Unit Manager, Lindsay Willis, and some willing assistants, a Grassy Park horse suffering from a life threatening case of colic was saved.

Airwolf was helped to a standing position and walked around for about 20 minutes to ease his pain. His story might have ended very differently if not for the quick thinking member of the public who called us to the scene. Please report any animal in distress to our Inspectorate team on 021 700 4158/9 or after hours on 083 326 1604. Together we can save animals’ lives.
