What drives us
The majority of the horse population is well cared for; however, there are a growing number of horses who suffer from neglect, abuse or abandonment. Our mission is to provide our county with the volunteer help and financial assistance needed to assist in the handling of horse welfare issues. We also strive to improve horse welfare through community education, awareness programs and seminars and to offer horse management and welfare training.
Under the guidance of the Director of Santa Rosa Animal Control Services, the SRCHAC will assist in locating approved foster care facilities for seized or abandoned horses, maintain a local list of resources for feed, hay, building supplies and other necessities, develop educational assistance, and provide counseling as needed. We plan to organize a "Helping Hands" co-operative which would offer limited assistance toward improving the overall health and welfare for approved horses in our county.
Our efforts to enrich the horse community through education is one of the most important goals we have set for ourselves. Through seminars, workshops, horse fairs and other educational events we will be able to reach the horse community to provide information necessary for maintaining a healthy horse. Some of the topics to be covered in these seminars are hurricane/disaster preparedness, horse health care issues, current information on deworming, vaccination, fencing, stabling facilities, hoof care, pasture management, nutrition, wound care, disease and lameness issues.
