Dulciena was rescued with Serena on May 20, 2017 in SW Miami Dade, victims of abandonment by their owner. She came in malnourished, and with what seems to be an old injury to her pelvis. She is part of an active cruelty case, and will only be available for adoption if we get legal custody of her.
UPDATE 9/1/17: Dulciena has regained her weight and is looking absolutely gorgeous. She arrived with a lot of trust issues but has relaxed immensely since she has been in our care, and you can tell she’s really trying. She has the sweetest personality, and gets along best with our more quiet horses and the minis. Dulciena does get a little impatient in the crossties, nothing major but good to be mindful of it. As for her cruelty case (State v William A. Flores, Case Number B-17-017095), trial is scheduled for Wednesday, 9/13/17 at 10:00am, at the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building, 1351 NW 12th St, Miami, FL 33125. NOTE: TRIAL DATE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
UPDATE 10/11/17: We are delighted to share that South Florida SPCA was awarded full legal custody of Dulciena today, and she is now available for adoption as a companion only. This sensitive senior mare needs a very special forever home with a gentle and patient owner.
