Who we are

WelcomeWelcome to EZ’s Place / Zedan Ranch – Horse Rescue Shelter

EZ’s Place is a non profit organisation run by Evelyne and her volunteers.

EZ’s Place defines his mission to restore the horses, especially older horses that have been a victim of abuse, and gives them a new home, proper care and affection.
EZ’s Place is inscribed with the number 727 into the voluntary regional register, under DPReg 91 of 05.21.2014.

Our philosophy is, to give a horse who comes to us a Second Chance since in the past he gave so much, maybe more than he was capable of giving.
This all takes place it in a loving, stress free environment which values and respects all living creatures.

However, we always (really,really!!) need help with…

  • brushing, massaging and socializing with the horses
  • taking them for walks to eat grass
  • loving and hugging them
  • fixing fences
  • caring for their welfare
  • repair and fixer upper
  • running water pipes
  • building shelters for the animals

EZ’s Place, founded in 2008, was the first non-profit horse protection organization established in Italy. It is the only organization whose mission is to care for elderly horses guaranteeing personalized care, nutrition, innovative veterinary treatments and solutions to improve the quality of life of horses with health problems or considered to be at the “end of their careers”. Daily care and interaction with companions and volunteers are fundamental to the horses’ recovery.
We currently house 19 horses, 3 donkeys, 2 goats, 6 elderly dogs and sundry other animals. Among the horses 15 were either abandoned by their owners, exploited and discarded after years of competing or rescued from abusive situations and they are all the responsibility of the non-profit. Several are now over 30 having regained their health and will to live.
The non-profit doesn’t receive any for of governmental or other subsidy as horses are not considered companion animals. Considered sources of income they are not assisted when they develop problems and require care but are instead lead to their death.
EZ’s Place-Horse Shelter survives only thanks to donations.

Every year the Shelter accumulates a debt of at least 10,000 euros which is becoming increasingly unsustainable. The Shelter volunteers are organizing fundraiser to try to pay down this debt-but there is never enough money. The president has exhausted her funds, she now needs your contribution so that after a life of exploitation the animals are afforded the well being, protection and assistance they deserve so they can age with dignity. We’re asking your help to insure the survival of a non-profit which is experiencing severe financial difficulties.
Thank you for the time you have dedicated to us.
