Free Spirit Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which was originally designed as an equine rescue.  However, we quickly learned the need for farm animal rescue in our area was extremely high so we opened our rescue to many animals.  We currently have horses, ponies, mini ponies, donkey's, pot belly pigs, goats, cats and dogs.  All of these animals came from extreme conditions and most were seized through animal control.  The horses we take in come to us weighing around 600 to 650 pounds and after rehabilitation will reach at least 1200 pounds.  We take rescue and rehabilitation serious and all of our rescues, once rehabilitated, are evaluated and some are adopted into forever homes while others are trained as therapy animals.  We share these therapy animals with veterans and children with disabilities.  In January, 2018, we will be certifying our mini ponies as full therapy ponies and these ponies will be attending toy drives, visiting nursing homes, foster homes, hospitals and veteran programs across not only the Tampa Bay area, but if needed, throughout the state of Florida.  

In addition to our rehabilitation program, we offer a case by case training program for each individual animal.  Some of these programs takes months and others can take a couple of years.  The abuse and neglect that these animals have endured are extreme and trust is a huge problem when they first arrive.  We give every animal all of the time they need to rehabilitate and in some cases, we choose to keep the animals as sanctuary animals due to the recurring health care they will need for the remainder of their lives.  Our training is built around the animals needs and abilities.  Some horses go on to become wonderful trail horses for families and some become a pet companion and enjoy the life of leisure and laziness.  It is important for us to determine the best scenario and capabilities of these animals to ensure we match them to the perfect family and home.  We pride ourselves in making sure these animals are never returned to rescue. 

We deal with animals (mostly horses) who have been beaten, abandoned, abused or neglected.  We deal in cases with beginning expenditures beginning at $500 and some requiring expense life saving surgeries  with prices tags of $10,000. As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, donations are our lifeline to saving these animals.  We work hard fundraising on a monthly bases as our expenses are great.  Due to the type of rescues we accept, our expenses are no less than $4500 per month and with emergencies can reach $6000 in a month.  Your donations are greatly appreciated and all amounts add up.  As a nonprofit, your donations are 100% tax deductible.

If you have the ability to help our organization, please join as a patron above.  With the continued support of those with the ability to donate even $1 per month, we can continue to save the lives of the animals in need. 

Stay tuned to more surprises coming in 2018.  We are determined to make a difference in the lives of not only these animals, but individuals who can benefit from us sharing the amazing animals with them too! 

Thank you!
