About Peaceful Ridge Rescue:
Peaceful Ridge Rescue began in 2004 as a one-horse rescue by our founder and president Victor Cutino, and his wife Ann. Each ensuing year resulted in Victor being called upon to rescue a greater number of abused and abandoned horses. Today, municipal authorities and the South Florida community rely on Victor and his staff of dedicated volunteers to provide rescue, rehabilitation and adoption services to all equines in need. With a “mission to find a home for every horse” adoption is the ultimate goal and Peaceful Ridge Rescue has found new homes for over eighty horses during the last few years.
Peaceful Ridge Rescue, Davie, Florida, is a Non-Profit Organization that provides much needed medical and dental care, rehabilitation, and adoption services for rescued horses. Our mission is to rescue horses from neglect, abuse, abandonment, and slaughter; to improve their lives by providing a safe haven for healing and rehabilitation; to find a home for every horse, through a rigorous adoption process, sponsor and foster program; and to educate the community through instructional support, and equine-assisted programs. Please take the time to donate and help a rescue horse eat and receive medical care for another week or month. Just scroll down the page and click on the DONATE button.

“This accreditation is very important to us. We are striving to be a community rescue that horses can rely on in their time of need. The Board worked very hard for over a year to meet the requirements and we were determined to become accredited in 2015,” said Victor Cutino, Founder and President of Peaceful Ridge Rescue. “We met our goal and we cannot thank GFAS enough for their support of the animal sanctuaries that work tirelessly to care for the abused, abandoned and neglected.”
