Equine Country Club and Fix and Feed Feline Feral Inc. are located not far from where I live. This wonderful group of caregivers and volunteers do a wonderful service for our Carrollwood, Fl neighborhood. This facility among other things rescues neglected animals and gives them a wonderful home until they can be placed with a new permanent family. They have horses, dogs, cats and even a duck and a few chickens!
Equine Country Club is a horse rescue farm dedicated to the well being and continued care of abused/neglected horses, offering boarding, and lessons in proper care/maintenance of horses and riding, The riders come from everywhere Lutz, Northdale, Odessa just to spend time with their second chance horses. And very few of those horses would have a home if not for Equestrian Club Country. But soon, the center may have to find another home if it can’t raise the money it needs to pay its taxes come April. Those taxes are estimated at $12,000. Financial donations may be made by making checks payable to Equestrian Club Country and mailing them to 4902 Timberlan St., Tampa FL 33624. Or come out for a ride – rates are $10 per person or $150 per week to camp. Check out http://carrollwood2.tbo.com/content/2008/jul/16/nw-campers-must-do-their-bit/news/ for more info on that!
Fix and Feed is always looking for financial donations to help continue spaying and neutering feral cats and providing food and medical care to the animals. Donations may be made out to Fix & Feed Feline Feral Inc. and sent to P.O. Box 270035, Tampa FL 33688.
