In 1992, following Hurricane Andrew, the South Florida SPCA was founded out of a need to help abandoned horses. Over the course of time a small effort to help individual horses grew to an organization that serves all horses and livestock who are victims of cruelty, starvation and or abandonment.
As the organization matured, The South Florida SPCA became collaborators with Miami Dade Animal Services, received accreditation with Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and Global Federations of Sanctuaries and began to serve the entire Miami Dade County community. We have rescued over 2,500 horses in the course of time. As well as all the farm livestock we have rescued, there have been llamas, alpaca’s, geese, and even a camel or two.
