Hurricane Ian Relief

Hurricane Ian Relief

In the wake of Hurricane Ian and its destruction unrivaled in Florida’s history, SWFHR has made its facility available for Donation efforts provided by out-of-area resources.  Organizations such as Rainbows Edge Equine Transition Center (Greenville, FL), Nature Speaks, Inc. (Jupiter, FL), and the Clay County Fair Association w/ Clay County Sheriff’s Department (Jacksonville, FL) have brought supplies for SWFHR to distribute to our local community in need.  Organizations such as shelters and rescues have received assistance as well as private citizens.  SWFHR will continue efforts to provide assistance while we can.  Even after the government organizations leave.

T.N.R. for Fortunate Ferals


Good Morning, I came over and received cat food donations under Fortunate Ferals on Thursday. I fed 18 cats on Rt 31 by Civic Center on my way back into town Thursday. They were so very hungry. The feeder at this location left after the Hurricane. She says she is going back every other day to feed.They have all were previously spayed and neutered by Fortunate Ferals. I texed her to come by to S.W.F. Horse Rescue for some cat food. Also on my way back Thursday I spent the whole afternoon giving out all your donated cat food to the most needy in Suncoast Estates and some M.H.Parks that were flooded by the Caloosahatchee River in N Ft Myers. Many have 10 to 16 feral / semi ferals they feed out of their fixed  income. Thankyou to all your supporters across the country for sending cat food. Feral cats are the most forgotten. There are usually not one or two but a whole colony. Thankyou so much, to all who have donated. Sincerely, Christine G Volunteer
