F.R.I.E.N.D.S. provides sanctuary for all horses taken into our fold. We accept all asymptomatic carriers of Equine Infectious Anemia(EIA) within the state of Florida. We also accept any horse in immediate need of assistance in Broward County and surrounding areas. Our priority is to prevent the needless destruction of horses. Our primary financial goal is to acquire sustainable funding to provide these noble animals with the dignity of allowing them to live out their lives while meeting their needs; providing proper care and the loving interactions they deserve. Our moral position is to advocate and participate in ongoing research to find a cure, vaccine or aide in creating more accurate testing by providing them with test tubes of blood samples drawn by a licensed veterinarian. It is also our intention to factually educate the public regarding EIA thus allowing us to dispel the myths and misconceptions that lead owners to think their only option is euthanasia. It is our ethical obligation to surrounding communities that we will continue to give back to them in a worthwhile and enriching way by maintaining and enhancing our many programs that benefit local families, organizations and horse owners thereby positively impacting the entire community.
