The South Florida SPCA Horse Rescue has received a $4000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Animals, to buy horse feed.
The Miami-based South Florida SPCA is home to more than 65 horses, some of which are available for adoption and others who are in rehabilitation.
The funding was thanks to the ASPCA’s Equine Fund, which provides grants to US nonprofit equine welfare organizations and other animal welfare organizations that care for horses, mules, donkeys and ponies.
The grants program seeks to award equine organizations that strive to achieve best practices, including maintenance of updated websites and robust fund-raising practices, as well as excellent animal care. The ASPCA awarded $1,682,352 in the form of 183 grants to support equine rescue groups in 38 states in 2011.
Established in 1992, the South Florida SPCA is one of the largest, oldest continuously operating horse rescues in the US. A 501c3 nonprofit, the organization’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and offer for adoption horses and domestic farm animals and to promote the well-being of animals through education.
