South West Florida Horse Rescue will host our 5th Annual Benefit to support the rescued equines currently at South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc. and the development of southwest Florida’s growing equine rescue facility. Mark your calendars:
This event is FREE and open to the public. Other fees may apply.
It was April 15th, 2014 that SWFHR (founded 2010) was able to purchase a property, in order to develop an equine rescue facility. All of which was made possible by a grant from a private foundation. The owners Tina, Matt and a host of dedicated volunteers over the years have been developing the facility that you will see. The horses always come first is our motto. Most do not know the vast cost of running an organization of this size, nor do they truly know how we fund our daily operations. Read more about us, to truly know more about us.
This event is primarily to celebrate the 5th year of operation here at the SWFHR Rescue Facility.
We hope to see our local community and their families enjoy this event and leave with a smile on their face, a bit of knowledge behind what we do, and who we are. Maybe even a prize or two from our auctions and raffles.
Bring the family and out for a day in horse country! Proceeds from this event will go to the continued construction of our wonderful Rescue facility, to make this a safe and healthy environment for all of our rescued equines.
Meet & Greet the rescued equines at the facility. Meet the horses in their living environments. Greet the working staff of SWFHR to put a face to the people behind the scenes at South West Florida Horse Rescue.
