Review for Florida Research Institute for Equine Nurturing Development & Safety, Inc. aka F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Horse Rescue, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I volunteered at ranch a few times a year. My last visit was very disappointing. The management was rude. Since April the ranch looks run down and horses not groomed. I heard the ranch being investigated for mismanagement of money/donations and animal neglect.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Bring back old management. Get rid of current management

These are some pretty damaging allegations you are making. I would suggest you find out the truth before writing such a damaging accusation as it is completely unfounded. We have a couple of disgruntled past members that have been terminated and they are making such accusations and now they are finding themselves in a libel litigation because of what they have put in writing. This is nothing more than a "Harassment Campaign" in which they are being investigated. This is nothing more than a pissing match that in the end will do nothing more that hurt the horses. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has NEVER been investigated for animal abuse or neglect. That is simply a ridiculous lie. Creatures423, who are you? I would like to discuss these allegations with you further. I would also like to mention that management has not changed. The ranch rules are the same and management is there to enforce the rules for the safety of the horses, the members and the organization. Since you are mentioning changes since April, the only change we have had is a couple of the sponsors were terminated for varies reasons but that is the only change.
