Philanthropic Ventures

WindyRidge is home to beautiful thoroughbreds, happy ponies, and rescue unwanted and abused Dalmatians.

Sadly, our oldest dalmatian Scooby passed away 6th May 2001. He would have been 17 in August. Up until he left us, he still ran with the ponies. Patch is our official guard dog, he loves you but don't feed him those fingers. And of course, you all know our latest addition "Courage". We got him at 6 months, saving him from living most of his puppy days in a crate. Please report any abuse and neglect of any helpless animal to the correct authorities.
