Horses & Hounds Fundraising Event To Return Sunday, Feb. 18

Get ready to “saddle up” for the 15th annual Horses and Hounds, an enchanting, family-friendly gathering set against the backdrop of 20 sprawling acres in the Homeland community at 11399 Piping Plover Road on Sunday, Feb. 18 from 2:30 to 5 p.m.

The event is a labor of love by Jeri Caprio and Jane Bistline, who have hosted this event now into its 15th year. While the event is free and open to the public, donations to benefit Tri-County Animal Rescue are welcomed.

Bring your kids and furry friends for this unique gathering with snacks, drinks and a light lunch served under a covered arena. Marvel at the enchanted forest, adorned with more than 1,000 orchids and charming statues, creating a magical atmosphere that adds to the allure of this wonderful property. Rain or shine, this event promises a delightful experience.

Highlights include a Westminster-style dog show, a silent auction supporting Tri-County Animal Rescue, a Blessing of the Animals by Rabbi Ellen Zuskin and visits with the miniature horses.

Tri-County Animal Rescue is a no-kill, nonprofit animal shelter working to prevent the killing of more than 270,000 unwanted pets in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties each year. With community support and no government funding, the organization has rescued hundreds of pets. For more information, call (561) 482-8110 or visit
