THE STORY:

The Paso Fino breed currently accounts for 40% of its rescued horses at SFSPCA. Paso Finos are very popular in South Florida, but sadly many are abandoned and neglected for various reasons and are often found dumped in SW Miami-Dade near the Everglades. (See our Facebook page for the latest updates on our Paso Fino rescues at http://www.facebook.com/SouthFloridaSPCA.)

This is an elegant horse renowned for its versatility, but even more so for its smooth gait, known as "The Smoothest Riding Horse in the World." (Read more at http://www.pfha.org/the-breed.)

On average, the initial cost to care for each horse brought in is $1,000. It costs nearly $500,000 each year to care for our rescues; veterinary costs can reach $7,000 per month or more, and the average monthly feed bill is over $14,000. While we have an excellent record of rehoming our horses and other animals, some are not adoptable while they’re involved in legal proceedings, some lasting more than a year. During this process, we continue to provide shelter, feed, veterinary care and farrier services.

As the only go-to resource for Miami-Dade law enforcement, the existence of SFSPCA means the life or death difference to horses and farm animals in need. Your donations make that difference.
