WHO
WE ARE

Our organization's officers are consistently and judiciously training and empowering the most involved and trustworthy volunteers by granting a select few with significantly more responsibility.  This is a coordinated effort to ensure that all of our horses’ needs are met for many years to come and has provided an impressive pool of resources to fill future officer's position.

Every day, the world over, wild and domestic animals are abandoned, displaced, or injured by humans and natural causes. The sole purpose of The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) is to ensure that these animals receive the highest standards of care during rescue, rehabilitation, and the rest of their life.

We are the only globally recognized organization for certifying that a facility meets the GFAS Standards of Excellence and recognizes those as a true “sanctuary.” As such, facilities around the world, large and small, come to GFAS for guidance and support in achieving and maintaining GFAS status.
