The Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation (ERAF) is a not-for profit 501(c) 3 tax Exempt Corporation devoted to the rescue,retraining and rehabilitation of abused, abandoned and neglected horses in South Florida and the Treasure Coast. We work closely with Sheriff’s Departments and Animal Care and Control Departments to identify these animals and remove them from dangerous and potentially lethal environments. Our dedicated professional providers, supporters and volunteers work diligently to rehabilitate and care for these magnificent animals to bring them to a healthy and socialized state.
Since its inception in 2000, ERAF has been totally dependent on donations, grants, wills and bequests to support our programs and services. ERAF has received multiple awards, citations and grants from organizations familiar with our outstanding work and are eager to show their support. These companies and organizations include, The Knopf Foundation, Palm City Chamber of Commerce, Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, The ASPCA, Petco, The Board of Martin County Commissioners and The Home Depot of Stuart to name just a few.
100% of all contributions are used to fund the foundation’s mission. To date, ERAF has rescued over 110 horses and completed over 100 successful adoptions while keeping to their core objective:
ERAF’s mission is to find a fully qualified forever home
for each equine that successfully completes our rehabilitation program
and to provide a loving, healthy and comfortable home for those that cannot.
