Horse Sanctuary Victim Of Theft
A non-profit and charitable organization in Alachua has become the victim of thousands of dollars in theft for the second time in a year.
Eighty three year old Pete Gregory and his wife Mary have given horses with no place to go a permanent home since 1984.
The Retirement Home for Horses in Alachua is home to over 100 horses who enjoy 265 acres of green pastures to live on.
The nonprofit depends of volunteers who give their time for free to care for the animals.
It's a lot of land to cover on foot, and horse feed and hay is no light load to carry, so the facility uses golf carts to get around.
Earlier this week two of their carts were stolen from their grounds.
Alachua County Sheriff's Office believes the carts were taken by someone familiar with sanctuary, because of their remote location.
Anyone with information is asked to call law enforcement.
