Tell us a story that has come out of your work.
On October 19, 2015 we were called in by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to assist with a huge abuse and neglect case. We took in 29 horses in 24 hours. The support and response from the community was amazing. People came from hours away to volunteer to help care for these horses and to help us restore them to health. Many of the horses have been adopted out and are adored by their new owners. Several of them have gone on to compete in horse shows in the local area as well as in adjoining states. The Peaceable Farm case was an incredible example of how a terrible situation can bring out the best in people.
