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.

Do you need help?
We suggest you contact us to see if we have what you need. We will try to keep the inventories updated on this site but can not guarantee that. We understand lines of communication have been spotty so if you show up during daylight hours our gates will remain open to try to help. All items leaving must be logged first. We can provide items within reasonable limits, no one person will be taking all of the supplies. We intend for the supplies to help for at minimum 1 week up to 3 weeks. You may return when your supplies run out and we have what you need.

Rescue Cats Rock
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

Can you Give Help?
Until further notice, we will continue to collect for distribution, donated supplies of any type of animal feed, medical care, and other helpful items such as bleach, soap, or water.
If you care to help with monetary support we are asking for gift cards to home improvement stores like HomeDepot or Lowe’s and grocery stores like Publix, Win-Dixie, or Walmart. We can pass these cards out to needy families to offset repair costs.
