SDA Projects that need your help!

After 35 long and beautiful years Sarasota in Defense of Animals (SDA) will be moving to a new location.

In order to provide new and amazing benefits to the animals and the people of Florida we are in need of funding to enact a plan to offer equine therapy to neuro-divergent individuals as well as continue to take in animals that are facing starvation, abandonment, in need of special care/medical attention and facing euthanasia.​​​​​​​

Our goal is to hit $500,000 to achieve these amazing programs & build the necessary enclosures and upgrades.
