My Nonprofit Reviews
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
I occasionally volunteer with a friend who sponsors a horse at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I love the dedication she has for this organization and the love in her voice when she talks about it every day. There is always excitement with her about being able to spend the day there. However, I have noticed this from EVERY sponsor I have interacted with at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Although they only sponsor one or two horses each, they dedicate their time to numerous horses at a time, making sure each are loved and cared for. I enjoy how they are constantly taking the horses out in the pasture and not being "stuck" in their stalls. This organization also has a lot of volunteers and are regularly organizing activities for all the sponsors to attend such as barbecues, trail rides, Halloween costume contests, etc.

I feel this organization has a lot to offer and to improve their organization can 1) reconstruct their website and 2) make the organization more well-known in the surrounding communities.
