Background Statement
Florida Rescue Farm is located in Duette, Florida. We have a small homestead and sanctuary on 5-acres of land in Southwest Florida. When we moved here our first farm animals were a flock of 5 chickens purchased as chicks from the local feed store. As our homestead grew we were often contacted by local animal rescue organizations and individuals who had farm animals that needed a good home. We learned from all of them and reaped the many lessons they offered. After several years of this, we obtained our 501(c)3 non-profit license so we could expand our reach to help more animals and educate people about the benefits and challenges involved in raising livestock.

Our philosophy is simple. Give animals the love and respect they deserve and you will be surprised at all they give back. We offer sanctuary to chickens, ducks, geese, goats, cattle and other livestock.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Florida Rescue Farm is a relatively new non-profit, but one that fills a great need in our area. Many wonderful people find themselves in a situation where they can no longer care for their livestock and it is extremely difficult to find a home for these animals where they will not end up on a dinner plate. I feel very fortunate to be part of an organization that provides long and short term homes for these deserving animals and also provides their former owners with a sense of security, knowing their pets have found a safe haven.
 
 
Programs
Description We provide a home, a safe shelter, for unwanted farm animals. We also provide a compassionate environment where the animals are respected and can live a life free of fear. We adopt animals that have been surrendered by their owners or animals that have been abandoned and are found by concerned individuals or by other animal rescue organizations. To assist in sustainability we also rehome some of these animals to carefully screened families.
Budget $16,500

Short Term Success The animals that have come to live here and the animals we have rehomed are living vibrant healthy lives. They are secure and unafraid. This is great for the animal, great for the person who was unable to keep their pet and through farm tours these animals teach people to respect livestock as you would any other living creature.
Long Term Success This will result in fewer people being forced to give a pet away, knowing it will be killed for food. It should help eliminate farm animals living in bad conditions because there is nowhere for them to go. Ultimately it will help to educate people before they get livestock so there is less abuse do to ignorance.
Program Success Monitoring We monitor success by interviewing people who have adopted from us and who have surrendered animals to us as well as people who have visited the farm to find out what their experience with our sanctuary has done for them.
Program Success Examples Little Hemi was a young pot-bellied pig. His first owners kept him in a small cage and did not care for him. When they were tired of him he was passed on to a caring person who just didn't have the knowledge or facilities to care for him, but they did contact us. When we got Hemi, his back legs were atrophied and he was covered in bleeding scabs from the mites and the condition he had been kept in. We cleaned him up, socialized him and got him a wonderful home, on a farm with a family that loves him to this day.
