Introduction

South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc. (SWFHR) is a Florida not for profit corporation created pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that donors can contribute sums to the organization and deduct those contributions from their income taxes. It also means the organization does not have to pay its own income tax on any proceeds deriving from its activities.  It is important for each donor to get his or her own tax advice in determining precisely what benefit would apply to his or her particular tax situation, but the tax deduction of donations to SWFHR is equivalent to those same such applicable donations of other charitable institutions; such as the Goodwill  or United Way.

Ways you can help!

Volunteering

Volunteering

We are always looking for Volunteers to help with general labor, basic horse care, local events, fundraisers, etc. Would you would like to volunteer your time to a rewarding cause or even to earn community service hours?

Sponsor

Sponsor

Committing to continued donations on a schedule is a dramatic way to make a difference. Your sponsorship to an equine or the organization, gives a sigh of relief from constricting financial burdens of day to day expenditures. Making a pledge to sponsor is an easy process.

Adopt

Adopt

Adoption is in many way the end and the beginning for rescued equines. The end of waiting for a permanent family environment. The beginning of forever. Our adoption program has rigid expectations of potential adopters for obvious reasons.

Mission Statement

South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to saving the lives of our local horses from abuse, neglect, and slaughter; by providing the best vet, farrier, and feed to bring these horses back to health in a safe and positive environment. With community in mind, we strive to gain an excellent standing with all we come in contact with. Finding “forever homes” for these horses is our priority.
