The Winged Horse Equine Welfare Inc. organisation is a not for profit, registered charity and has been formed to help horses and ponies in Australia; through raising awareness about issues related to animal welfare, rescuing and rehabilitating horses at risk, then rehoming to caring homes. Our organisation runs on gracious donations, so if you feel you are in a position to lend a hand, please Donate today.
NEWBIES We are full to the brim, so we haven't taken in any new equines large or small, of late. This year has been a hard one, and we have just purchased another $3,500 worth of grass hay (donated by us the Bischofs), to get our herd through.
Sponsorship needed. As our organisation runs on gracious donations, individual sponsorship truly goes a long way. To find out a little more about sponsoring a WH sentient, head over to Sponsorship and adoptions or indeed sponsorship needed. Otherwise you can view whether any of our animals in care are requiring sponsorship by heading to their individual profiles.
Thanking everyone for their continuing support, whether by volunteering, financially supporting us, or spreading the word of what we do, and promoting holistic care of our sentient friends. Love Carolyn Bischof President TWHEW Inc. Sowing the Seeds of Kindness, one Choice at a Time

The Winged Horse Equine Welfare Inc is a not-for-profit, registered charity with DGR status that is currently based in Portarlington, on the Bellarine Peninsula, in Victoria, Australia. Our mission and purpose is to take in unwanted, neglected, abused and/or slaughter-bound horses and other animals to rehabilitate, support and eventually find each sentient their perfect forever home, where possible. While nurturing those in our care we also aim to educate the wider community about issues related to animal welfare, rescuing and rehabilitating at risk horses and how people can help our efforts. TWHEW has been running for 6 years after taking ownership of an 80 acre property on the outskirts of Portarlington which had previously been used as a racehorse training facility. Our approach is to use environmentally friendly methods and holistic practices where possible, when looking after those in our care.
We currently have 35 equines in care and, despite horses being our primary rescue, we open our gates to other critters in need, namely; 14 alpacas, 12 sheep/lambs, lots of chickens/roosters, 2 guinea fowl, 6 goats and 3 pigs!
Help Needed:You will no doubt appreciate the cost of all of our rescuing and rehabilitation care. We are currently struggling to pay vet, feed and other bills, as we are purely funded through donations and animal sponsorship. To find out how you can help, head to our Donate today page. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, help us help them.
