Rehoming Charity Horses4Homes featured in the new series Auf Wiedersehen My Pet this week on ITV1.  The programme is a 20 part series making its ITV debut on 17 March, it will see pet owners who, for genuine personal reasons, have to make the tough decision to give up their much-loved animals. They will be matched with a trio of potential new owners, all desperate to offer the pet a loving new home.

The current owners may be moving abroad, or perhaps for personal reasons can no longer give their animal the attention it needs. Each programme will focus on one owner and their pet, as they are given the opportunity to meet potential new owners, get to know their families and see around their homes. With invaluable help and advice throughout from animal experts, this series will follow the tears of goodbye, and the joy of a new beginnings. 

Horses4Homes was asked by Shine TV to be involved in the programme and on Tuesday 18th March it follows the rehome of a mare called Skye and a revisit at the end of the week to see how all the animals have settled into their new homes.

On Thursday 27th March at 2pm the programme follows the rehome of a horse called Rocky based in Derbyshire that was rehomed through the charity.

Rehoming Manager Rebecca Evans said, “I would like to personally thank the owners of Skye and Rocky and their respective applicants for being involved in the programme, without them it would not have happened. It was an incredible experience to be the equine expert for the programme and we hope that its coverage will not only help to raise awareness of the charity’s work but also help the general public to better understand some of the awful circumstances forcing owners to rehome their pets and the safeguards that should be undertaken when rehoming to best ensure the most suitable home is found.”
