Review for THE FLORIDA RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR EQUINE NURTURING DEVEL & SAF, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Friends Is a wonderful place for both the horses that live there and the people ,who like myself, are lucky enough to be involved with the ranch. It is a haven for so many unwanted and or previously uncared for horses.
The horses are well cared for and loved by the all volunteer staff and the kind volunteers from the community.
It is a great service FRIENDS provides to both the horses and the community. I spend a lot of time there
and it is a happy place to be!

FRIENDS is a wonderful organization that has saved many horses over the years. I have been volunteering there for almost 2 years. Since I have been there several horses have come to us in deplorable condition. With the dedication and attention of the vet and the all volunteer staff, these horses returned to being the magnificent animals they were meant to be. The work is hard but the rewards are many. The sponsor program allows people to get more involved with the horses and the ranch. It is a non profit organization that uses the donations for the care and well being of the horses.
Most of these horses would have been destroyed if it were not for FRIENDS. I get much more from the horses than I could ever give to them.

I have been volunteering at FRIENDS for 1 1/2 yrs. I am there usually 3 x's a week. It is a place where the horses get a second chance. The horses are well cared for,regularly seen by a vet and loved by feeders,sponsors and volunteers. A former( now disgruntled) member wrote a review full of false accusations and lies. I believe this same person just 6 months ago wrote a 5 star review. If you read her review(she did not put her name), I encourage you to come out to the ranch and see for yourself the condition of the horses.
I have never seen a horse mistreated or uncared for at the ranch. It is an all volunteer /donation organization. We have many regular volunteers who share the love and care of the horses. FRIENDS
is doing the best it can for the rescued horses who now live there. Reg F

FRIENDS is a wonderful place to connect with both nature and the magnificent animals-the horses- that reside there. Some of the horses came from deplorable conditions. They are nurtured,fed and loved by sponsers and volunteers. What I get from these wonderful animals is far more than I am able to give to them. Who knew that cleaning stalls,raking hay and cleaning water troughs could be so rewarding!
Most of the volunteers and sponsers are animal lovers who do what is needed to make life the best it can be for these once discarded horses. FRIENDS is a safe haven for both the horses and the humans who support it. Reg

This is a non-profit horse rescue staffed entirely by volunteers with a love of animals-especially horses.
There are currently about 56 horses,10 pigs,2 goats and 2 donkeys at the ranch. Many of these animals
would not be alive if it were not for the ranch. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the animals. The horses can be sponsored for a monthly fee which helps pay for the costs of caring for the horses. Some of the horses are rideable and some are not due to arthritis and other non-life threatening conditions. ALL of the horses are wonderful,beautiful animals . Going to the ranch to feed, clean stall, bathe and groom horses is something I look forward to all week long. The ranch depends on our donations of time and money.
