Southern Sun Farm Sanctuary is dedicated to our daughter, Kasey Lisk
(December 11, 1980 - July 15, 1996) ...
young and strong, kind and beautiful.
Her touch will be forever felt.
We love you Punkin'!
A Horse's Prayer
Feed me, water and care for me and when the day’s work is done, provide me with a shelter, a clean dry stall large enough for me to lie down in comfort. Talk to me, your voice often means as much to me as the reins. Pet me sometimes so that I may serve you more gladly and learn to love you. Shoe me properly that I may serve you in comfort. Never strike, kick or beat me when I don’t understand what you want, but give me a chance to understand you. And, finally, oh master, when my youthful strength is gone, do not turn me out to starve or freeze, or sell me to some cruel owner to be slowly tortured or stoned to death, but do thou, my master, take my life in the kindest way, and your God will reward you here and hereafter. You will not consider me irreverent if I ask you this in the name of Him who was born in a stable... Amen.

Southern Sun Farm
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.
Southern Sun Farm receives rescue from seven North Carolina counties and three other states. We at times, adopt rehabilitated rescues into loving, forever homes.
