FRIENDS is an incredible non profit. My first horse was a EIA positive horse that I had through Friends, I had him until he passed away and was involved for many years. EIA horses would have few options without FRIENDS and many would be put down.
I live in central Florida now and still own
horses I will never forget my roots. FRIENDS is a horse lovers dream and an opportunity to have their own horse.

FRIENDS is a great place for kids to learn to love horses and other farm animals, and to develop skills and a sense of responsibility that will help them in all facets of life as they mature. Volunteering at FRIENDS is also great exercise and helps burn off all that excess energy that kids have.

Endow them with more money so they wouldn't have to work so hard raising funds.

I have sponsored horses at FRIENDS for 5 years. They take GREAT care of the horses, even though they don't have all the modern tools for horse care. Their vet is so patient and kind. It's a great organization and I hope you will sponsor a horse or volunteer to help in some other way.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Because I sponsor a horse at FRIENDS, I have personally experienced the wonderful care that they get. It also provides volunteer opportunities for high school students and other people.

I would give them all the modern tools that would make taking care of horses easier. It would be great if they had electricity, a better water supply (or water supply to each stall instead of having to drag hoses), and other improvements to help the horses.

FRIENDS..is where I met the loves of my life. (S.S.M) It is a place where I go with much anticiaption to see my team of three. I've learned so much about horses at FRIENDS through the helpful staff and still continue to do so. i consider FRIENDS to be a palce where they truly care for the animlas and everyone works with one purpose, to give the horses the proper care they were lacking. Truly remarkable experience!

FRIENDS ranch is a relaxing place to spend a few hours helping out some wonderful animals. There are so many different jobs to do that anyone can find something they can do to help out. It is the only place I have found that would let my kids volunteer under the age of 16.
If someone can't
donate their time, and money donated is strictly used for the animals.

I consider FRIENDS ranch my second home. My second family. After first starting on February 25, 2012 this place means everything to me; the people and the animals. It is a very friendly environment for all ages. I learned and am still learning everything there is to know about horses. IF I COULD I WOULD LIVE AT THE RANCH

FRIENDS Ranch is the greatest place to volunteer at. You are interacting with the horses, goats, pigs and donkeys as well as working with a great group of people. Everyone is helpful and upbeat. It is a ranch that the whole family can enjoy and know they are doing something positive for the animals. I have volunteered with FRIENDS for the past 12 years and love every minute I've spent working there.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how they care for the animals and love what they do.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

caring for the needs of the horses, goats pigs and donkeys

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

upbeat, enthusiastic and willing to help...great team spirit

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy land for the horses, build state of the art stables and never have to worry about depending on donations to survive especially when the economy isn't doing well.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

I started off at the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ranch just loooking to get a. horse to ride for my daughter and I. From my very first visit I saw how much love the owner has for these horses. So many of these horses come from a sad places or was on their way to be put down. I have seen many horses come in that are starving because of owner neglect. The transforrmation of these horses from sick to healthy is nothing short of a miracle. It takes a lot of love, nurturing, time and compassion to make these animals healthy again. There are a lot of caring people there from kids, teens to adults that volunteer there for hours but mostly because they truely enjoy and love these animals. For me personaly being around these horses are therapeutic for me. I can go there feeling stressed spend a few hours with my horse and leave feeling like a new person. I believe we get more from them than they do from us....

I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. it's a great family run organization and is a very family oriented place. I've been volunteering there for over a year and I love it. All of the horses are very soothing to the soul and are great fun.
