After 35 long and beautiful years Sarasota in Defense of Animals (SDA) will be moving to a new location.
In order to provide new and amazing benefits to the animals and the people of Florida we are in need of funding to enact a plan to offer equine therapy to neuro-divergent individuals as well as continue to take in animals that are facing starvation, abandonment, in need of special care/medical attention and facing euthanasia.

  • Horse Barn Upgrades - $25,000
  • Equine / Horse Arena Upgrades - $10,000

  • New walk-ways, pavement, concrete, farm equipment, garage to store equipment, property clearance, clean up tree/debris, privacy hedges and maintenance - $250,000
