Abandonment

It is an illegal offence to abandon any animal, with a possible 51 week prison sentence, a fine up to £20,000 – or both. NEWC has seen an increase in the number of abandoned horses over the last few years and reports of horses straying on roads, abandonments at livery yards, and horses being dumped on private or council land have increased.
