Collaborations, Awards and Achievements

F.R.I.E.N.D.S.  has won many awards through the years. We are so appreciative of the recognition for our hard work and also for the exposure the awards and collaborations provide to those who do not know what it is we do for the horses in our care. The awards we have garnered through the years serve to educate the public to the importance of what FRIENDS does as we continue to search for a cure for EIA and to provide sanctuary and care for our herd.

We are extremely grateful for the support and very generous donations made by the various funds at the Community Foundation of Broward.

Guardians are organizations on the Equus Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their programs, horse care practices, and governance. We are so happy that we can meet the criteria for this special acknowledgement. We would also like to thank them for their generous grant in 2019.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S.  has been given the Guidestar Platinum Participant Badge; the highest level possible.



Since 2013 we have been and continue to be a Top-Rated NonProfit with "Great NonProfits".
