What a wonderful Christmas surprise! DreamCatcher Horse Ranch & Rescue Center, a non profit Horse Rescue and Sanctuary in Clermont, received a grant of $2000 from the ASPCA in December 2012. The grant is to help purchase grain, hay, and supplements for the horses at the Rescue – which is a great help in our quest to feed and care for our Horses in need.

Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”  The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide.

Today, the ASPCA is the nation’s second-largest animal welfare grant maker, providing support to U.S.-based nonprofit animal welfare organizations through cash grants, sponsorships, executive and technical assistance, and training. In 2011, the ASPCA gave $15.1 million in 1,270 grants to more than 740 animal shelters, municipal and governmental agencies, rescue groups, sanctuaries, and other animal welfare organizations.

Thanks to the ASPCA the grant will pay for a months supply of feed and grain for our rescue horses. If you would like to visit us to meet our horses, or to make a donation,  or set up  a  riding lesson or other horse related activity please contact Alison on 407 702 8332 or email or visit
