Amazing work helping animals. Have been associated with them since the beginning. Their priority is the animal. Never turns away an animal in need. They put in their own time and money, not for any purpose but to help animals. Proud to be associated with them.

Love the rescue! I began my days at STH in 2007 when I first moved to Cumming. I was looking for a group to belong to and animals that I could work with and care for. Being a dog lover more than a horse lover I knew it was best I choose a horse rescue because it was safe...Safe in the sense I couldn't bring one home and put in my backyard. Certainly not with the approval of my HOA....so here my journey began. I learned about caring for horses, I learned how to groom, how to feed, how to turn in and turn out, how to muck a stall, spread shavings, empty water buckets, all the things that are required to care for horses and I loved every minute of it. I felt good each weekend after working with as many as I could on morning feed. In 2009 I started fostering dogs for the sister organization CAN and continued to care for both the equine and canine; those of which I can bring home and put in my yard. I also had the pleasure of fostering a baby pot bellied pig one summer named Kenny from STH. He was too little to go in the petting zoo area, so I cared for him along with my Standard Poodles while he grew up ! It is such a wonderful place to spend time and help out. I cherish my time and experiences.
