St. Francis Animal Rescue

St. Francis Animal Rescue (SFAR) was founded in 1992 when a group of women banded together to feed & spay/neuter a colony of feral cats living at the North Jetty in Nokomis, Florida. The women recognized there was a need to help stray, homeless & abandoned cats in the community. In 1993, SFAR became a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Three years later, property was purchased to accommodate a cageless shelter/adoption center & a thrift store. The thrift store is located in our new building next to the shelter
