Sunshine Horses is happy to announce that we have been verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). GFAS is an international animal welfare organization whose mission is to improve the quality of animal care for animals requiring rescue and/or sanctuary. For organizations to gain verification from GFAS, they must meet and maintain strict standards of excellence.
At the end of 2018, Sunshine Vice President Mary Minkoff established a committee to work on verification. Over several months the GFAS committee established and documented protocols for all aspects of animal care and interaction. Sunshine Horses was verified upon review of these protocols and a site inspection.
Verification from GFAS shows Sunshine Horses' commitment to humanely and ethically rescue and care for animals in need. As the only organization providing sanctuary accreditation worldwide, GFAS verified organizations have preferred (and in some cases exclusive) access to grants, major donors and other potential sources of support. Sunshine Horses is excited to see their hard work and dedication result in verification. We look forward
