The mission of the South Florida SPCA is: > To rescue, provide medical treatment, shelter and care for horses and other animals. > To rehabilitate the animals and place them in permanent foster homes. > To promote the welfare and well-being of animals through education. > To educate the public on responsible animal care and ownership and the value of every life.
The main operating program of South Florida SPCA is the rescue of abused and neglected horses and other animals, their care and rehabilitation. Other important programs include: - Placing recovered animals in appropriate homes for adoption or temporary foster care. - Volunteer programs that cover many aspects of working with the animals, their care and helping the organization. Community service hours are offered to high school students who volunteer. - A variety of educational and community service programs are offered as this is vital to recognizing and preventing abuse and neglect. Hands-on programs at our facility are a wonderful learning experience. - Provide services of trained animal cruelty investigator, owner counseling and education to improve the care of horses and other animals in the South Florida area.
The SPCA has represented, through the many years I recollect, a strong force in the community, the protection, healing, and placement of abused animals. They represent the creatures who are unable to defend themselves, and speak for themselves, often from, and in response to the cruelty of their human caregivers. If one has the time to give as a volunteer, this would be the organization which I believe is the one to contribute to.
