30 Years of Saving Horses!

“This year is F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 30th year of Saving Horses from all over the State of Florida” said Debra Beye Barwick, Executive Director“. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our organization to welcome the residents and businesses in our community to come out and see what we do and how they can help.”   “We are looking for new members and we’d love to have your support in helping us continue our efforts”

This family-friendly open-house event takes place at: 19801 SHERIDAN STREET, SOUTHWEST RANCHES, FL 33332

This nationwide competition is for equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the lifesaving work they do year-round to care for at-risk horses in their community who have often been abused or neglected. Horses have been central to the ASPCA’s work since its founding 150 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.
