We couldn’t have hoped for nicer weather or a nicer group of people. We had an AWESOME turn out for World Animal Day 2019 at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Horse Rescue & Sanctuary in Southwest Ranches, Florida. We had over 50 people come out for the celebration. We asked for two hours of help and most of them stayed three to five hours volunteering. They helped dump, scrub and refill water buckets and troughs, groom some of the herd, rake and clean stalls, walkways and the ring. We invited everyone for a “hot dog” lunch and we did have Vegan Hot Dogs. Everyone got involved and did what chores they wanted to do. It’s our secret, if you let the volunteers do what they want to do, and they like what they are doing, they will come back! The workload was spread out which helped get everythig done earlier. Everyone loved the horses, miniature dokeys, the hinny, the goats, the sheep and the cat. https://youtu.be/AYMUklmSj84
