Ann and John have been working in animal welfare for over 19 years. Ann was on the Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Greater Miami and a volunteer at the South Florida SPCA, a horse rescue group, and the Horse Protection Association of Florida. John was the Executive Director of the Humane Society of Greater Miami and both helped found the Ashe County Humane Society in Ashe County, North Carolina. Whether administratively or operationally, there are not many scenarios that they have not experienced. That experience has translated into Southern Sun Farm Sanctuary, where they provide a resource/solution for local animal control functions, veterinarians and other horse enterprises.
