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 who is entirely dependent on grass roots donations, adoption fees and an occasional grant. We do not discriminate on breed or size - all animals deserve a chance at happiness. We do not turn our backs on serious medical cases that often run up into several thousand dollars. In our first full year of operation, we rescued over 400 animals and adopted over 300 into loving homes. If we didn't exist, WHERE would those animals be today?
Our mission includes:
* Removal of animals from situations that are abusive, endangering and/or neglectful;
* 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.
