Since founding Redwings Horse Sanctuary in 1984, Wendy Valentine's name has been synonymous
with care and concern for horses.
In 1995, Wendy formed Hillside Animal Sanctuary after witnessing the plight of the battery hen and
has since helped and campaigned
for animals in need, particularly those who are so routinely abused in
the intensive factory farming industry.
Hillside is now home to over 2000 animals and is one
of the UK's most successful campaigning organisations for the animals' cause. We have always known that one of the main reasons animals are left to suffer in factory farms is because people have little or no idea about the immense cruelty involved in their food production. Although most of our rescued animals have been saved from the farming industry, Hillside is home to over 700 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.
