South Florida SPCA (SFSPCA) is the last line of defense for abused and abandoned horses and livestock in Miami-Dade, Florida. It’s the only thing standing between them and starvation, death, and even slaughter. SFSPCA works in cooperation with Miami-Dade Animal Services Department and responds 24/7 to local law enforcement to investigate cruelty and abandonment cases, and to seize and care for those victims at its Homestead facility. Marking its 27th year in 2019, SFSPCA is the only organization qualified to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and re-home horses in Miami-Dade. The organization educates the public and promotes the humane treatment of equines through its outreach and volunteer programs, website and social media, and at events and community appearances. SFSPCA promotes the welfare of equines through local and national advocacy, while its Legal Task Force works pro bono assisting the county and state attorneys in the prosecution of civil seizure and criminal cruelty cases.
