Mission Statement

Dedicated to saving the lives of our local horses from abuse, neglect, and slaughter by providing the best vet/farrier/feed to bring these horses back to health in a safe and positive environment. With the 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.


South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc. (SWFHR) is a Horse (Equine) Rescue operating in SW Florida more specifically Charlotte, Lee, Collier counties. We give our all for our community's equines and then some. Our operating area has, since our founding back in 2010, always been stated as the (5) counties of SW Florida but over the years we have rescued and re-homed beyond our counties.

We operate by simple rules which are safety, comfort, and security. These managing points lead to the main topics, of what we do, reduce and prevent undue stress of equines and owners. We consider our humane, ethical, and fiduciary duty to the equines we currently care for, to not need saving ourselves, while providing the following programs:

Equine Rescue, Equine Adoption, Volunteer, Equine Education, and Equine Owner Assistance (as funding is available)

Great organization. Great atmosphere and great people. I tell everyone I know that would like to be involved with the ad of equestrians to contact South West Florida Horse Rescue Inc. and lend a hand. I have watched them grow over the past 4 years since I first met them and they would not have grown and achieve the goals and great accomplishments they have with without being the great people and organization they are. Donate your time or some spare change... even go out for a ride... you will love it and they will to.
