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

Rating: 5 stars  


I have been a loyal supporter of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. even before it's non-profit status. This is an amazing organization that not only rescues abandoned, abused, orphaned, and older horses that would be put down, but ultimately provides plenty of love and affection for these magnificent animals! It is a forever place for them to live the rest of their lives in happiness with the caring efforts of the many volunteers that have come through the gates throughout the years.

This organization also provides the opportunity for families to participate in good family recreation by allowing them to sponsor one of the horses or simply in participating in the feeding,cleaning, and care for the horses, as well as pot belly pigs, goats, donkeys, and miniature horses.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. provides local community events and services, as well as informative seminars. The emotional rewards in caring and working with the horses are paid in many WHINNIES!!!!!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

This outstanding organization not only provides a haven for abused, orhpanded, and abandoned horses, but also for horses that can no longer be taken care of by their owners due to the economy, foreclosures, etc. This organization also works with the community and other organizations providing experiences of working with the horses. School students earning community service hours learn about responsibilites and caring for the animals. Other individuals serving community service hours continue to come back to help as volunteers on a regular basis. This organization exists only through donations, grants, and various fundraisers. Please vote for us!!!!!! F.R.I.E.N.D.S. thanks you.

If you are looking for an organization to do volunteer work with, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. can be a rewarding experience for any age group. It is not a riding stable or exclusive equine club...simply a safe haven for horses who would have no other place to go, possibly facing euthanization. There are many loyal,caring, long time volunteers, come rain or shine. Students can earn there community service hours. Many come back on a regular basis after they have finished! Volunteers will perform many duties such as grooming, cleaning stalls, cleaning and filling water buckets, sprucing up stall areas, etc. If you're looking for a place to get exercise and bond with animals, give F.R.I.E.N.D.S. a try?

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

We get to meet many interesting people and kids from all walks of life and can share the rewarding experience of enjoying being around these wonderful animals.

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

Staff members are very knowledgable and helpful and share their time with the many volunteers that have never been around horses before.

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

Make sure that any horse that needs a home will not be turned away, and F.R.I.E.N.D.S. could continue to educate members of the community on the care of these wonderful animals.
