The perfect gift for animal lovers, why not adopt a Horse

Animal adoption is a great way to support Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary, lasts all year and makes for a lovely treat or gift.
Treat yourself or buy as a gift for the animal lover in your life.


At Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary we have many horses such as Miniature, Shetland Ponies, Welsh Cob to Shire Horses. All have been rescued within the UK.

In the summer the horses spend more time in the fields and eat the grass that grows there. They also have supplements of sugar beet which must be soaked in water overnight or it could kill them. They like fresh chopped vegetables and herbs and the odd currant bun, apple, pear or even an occasional polo mint as a treat.

In winter they need lots of hay and other foods like ‘cool mix’, alfalfa and sugar beet as well as chopped vegetables and fruit. They also spend more time indoors in the barn at night but provided the weather is not too wet they usually have daily exercise in the fields.

A farrier comes every 8 weeks to trim their hooves but they do not need horse shoes.

Our Mission

The sanctuary rescues and
provides a home for many types of unwanted animals, especially primates, such as chimpanzees, gibbons, baboons, spider monkeys, vervets, capuchins, tamarins, macaques and marmosets.

Although we specialise in the care and protection of primates we cannot stand by and see other animals in need of help. You will therefore
find meerkats, wolf dogs, horses, donkeys,
pigs and others at our sanctuary. All
are equally important members
of our extended family.
