Navy CPO Selectees Spruce Up Cantonment Horse Rescue

September 27, 2017

A group of 18 chief petty officer selectees from NAS Pensacola volunteered their time on a recent Saturday to spruce up around Panhandle Equine Rescue in Cantonment.

They completed many needed tasks around the facility, including painting, carpentry and addressing washout areas from torrential summer rainfall.

“We appreciate our military men and women who not only protect and serve our country, but also commit to helping various non-profits in our community,” Panhandle Equine Rescue President Diane Lowery said.

The only horse rescue in Escambia County, PER was founded by a small group of concerned citizens with a mission to rescue, rehabilitate and provide adoption services for abused, neglected and abandoned equines. PER is authorized by the court system to investigate equine cruelty in Escambia County.
