    Just to clarify… ESAR and its members rescue lost people. The other two groups you guys are talking about are organizations that rescue great Danes and horses.

    The horse rescue group was Panhandle Equine Rescue.

    There was also the Northwest Florida Great Dane Rescue with some great dogs! And a horse rescue (missed the name :( ). Nice to see all three groups out there yesterday!
