Volunteering Our Time

Retirement Home for Horses – Mill Creek Farm Alachua, Florida

Tuesday February 10th, 2016

Retirement Horses Info Board IMG_20160210_100952Pepine Realty is inspired by community and committed to improving the lives of others. Each month we volunteer locally as part of our mission to empower the people, families, neighborhoods and communities we serve. This month we are altruistic about animals! Yesterday, a group of our volunteers painted the poles, halter racks, and the exterior structure of a workshop at one of our favorite retirement homes for horses, Mill Creek Horse Retirement Farm.




We had a rewarding experience volunteering our time as we spruced up the curb appeal for this nonprofit organization caring for over 133 rescued, previously abused, abandoned and retired horses that are now living out their lives healthy and happy. We are so grateful we were able to help out this farm and everything they do for these horses.




The family owned retirement home for horses at Mill Creek Farm is 335 acres of tree-lined, rolling green pastures that is protected by a perpetual conservation easement that prevents the land from being developed, ensuring that the Retirement Home For Horses at Mill Creek Farm will always be a sanctuary for horses in need.
