While current restrictions are in place due to the foot and mouth outbreak, the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) has taken the decision to close all six of their Recovery and Rehabilitation Centres throughout the UK.
This closure will include the movements of equines in and out, and public access to the Centres. It will take immediate effect and will last up to and including Wednesday 14th March at which time the closure will be reviewed taking into consideration the containment of the present foot and mouth outbreak.
Field Officers will be observing ILPH restrictions on entering premises where there are cloven hooved animals.
The ILPH would like to apologise to all its visitors for this inconvenience and look forward to their continued support once the present restrictions are lifted.
