Tour and Food Drive for Sarasota in Defense of Animals

  • May 18, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • Sarasota in Defense of Animals

Sarasota in Defense of Animals is a local organization that cares for more than 300 rescued animals right here in Sarasota.  They also run many great programs for animals locally including feral cat spay/neuter clinics and more.

They normally keep the ranch closed to the public because people tend to abandon animals on the property.  So this is a special opportunity for VegSarasota members to learn about this organization. Come take a tour of  this beautiful ranch that is home to more than 300 animals......cows, pigs, bunnies, cats, geese, goats, horses and more.

Part of the reason for this tour is also to hold a food drive for the animals at the ranch. We kindly ask that you bring a bag of inexpensive dog food for the pigs such as Ol Roy, or wild bird seed for the ducks, Pedigree Adult dog food or Purina cat chow. 

Please email [masked] for more info and to RSVP.

    I wish I could have gone. I wanted to but had other commitments. It sounds like a great place to see. I hope there is another one soon that maybe I could attend.

    I am so sorry to say that myself and family will not be able to make it tomorrow. Unfortunately I did not know where it was until after I RSVP'd. I did not realize it was so far away and we are just not able to make the trip. We are very disappointed as we really wanted to do this :-(

      sorry, Pam, I just got this notice.....so sorry we missed it. Was it closer to Sarasota than the map showed? It looked about 2 hours away.

      Hi Susan.....the map is not correct. I posted several times to not go by the map and email me for directions. I have no idea how that map got there. It is located off clark road. Seven miles east of 75. We will have another tour soon and hopefully you can come. Thanks

    URGENT: TO ALL THOSE COMING TO RANCH TOUR: Yesterday a small dog named Henry got lost in Myakka State Park, which is not that far from the ranch. It is tiny, brown, black and white, looks like a Chihuahua... please keep your eyes open... the owners are frantic. If you see it, catch it. Call me... Susie on SDA phone... 266-5021... OR for directions to SDA for tour. Thanks

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
