Guardians of Florida Animal Rescue, Inc

Fort Myers, FL

Our Mission

Guardians of Florida Animal Rescue, Inc (“GOFAR”). was founded by a group of professional women on 4/27/21 who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of animals who have no voice, no hope and no GUARDIAN. We are a 501(c)3 organization whose mission includes:

Removal of animals from situations that are abusive, endangering and/or neglectful, which include, but are not limited to, kill shelters, stray animals, owner surrenders and puppy mills;
Providing temporary homes and appropriate care (general and medical) for rescued animals;
Placing rescued animals into responsible, permanent adoptive homes or provide sanctuary for rescued animals for which adoption is not feasible; and
Promoting and advancing public education on the importance of spaying/neutering and responsible animal ownership.

Adoption Policy

1) Submit application

2) Application is reviewed for completeness and assigned to an adoption coordinator

3) Adoption coordinator verifies critical information on the application, contacts references and ensures that the requested animal is a good fit for the family

4) Adoption coordinator, in conjunction with rescue management, approves or denies application

5) Upon notification of approval, an adoption coordinator works with foster and adopter to set up an adoption appointment to bring your new family member home!

We strive to work through adoption applications as soon as we can. We are 100% volunteer-based so it can take a day or two to complete the review. This also depends on the response time of your references. Should you change your mind or adopt a different animal after submission, please inform us so we do not spend unnecessary time on your application.
