Sedora's Ranch and Rescue began and was named after Christine's only surviving Child, Sedora. When Christine was as young as she can remember all she ever did was bring in stray cats and dogs! As she got older her love for animals hasn't changed. Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. She started with her dog Skipper, he went where she did, and at age 14 he passed away and from that moment on she wanted to save every animal. Benson was a rescue from Humane Society and passed at age 14 also. Capone was bought here at the Humane Society of Naples in 2015. When he was first brought home he jumped out of the car and he loved being on the acreage! He ran and played with his new toys for hours!! Capone is now 5 years old.
Christine had adopted Chester from the flea market in Fort Myers when he was an 8 week old puppy and he's now 8 years old. After her years of dancing she got interested in Equine. She went to Brandenburg school of Massage Therapy where she got her license to massage older and crippled Equine and Canine, or some who's parents just wanted to spoil their animals to a relaxing therapeutic massage. She is also a Certified groomer, and after Skipper passed she wanted to do something in his name. She would go to the shelters here in Naples to give free grooming to the animals in the shelter in Skippers name to leave his legacy.
Christine loves being on the Ranch here in Naples, Florida living on acreage and being able to Rescue Animals in this Beautiful Community. We look forward to what the Future holds for Sedora's Ranch & Rescue.

Join us to help provide the momentum that helps us affect change the lives of these Helpless Animals.
Gidget is our newest arrival to Sedora's Ranch and Rescue.
When Gidget first arrived she could barely stand up on all fours legs.
Upon arrival to Sedora's Ranch & Rescue we were able to have the Vet come out and X-ray and trim her hooves. In one photo you can see her broken bone and in the other X-Ray there was no coffin bone. She was put on pain medication for the time being and all we could do was watch and wait. The Vet sent the x-rays to the Farrier and The Vet was not hopeful and determined if she didn't get better she would have to be put down.
With the Farrier's trimmings and the Love we gave her she has made a tremendous comeback where she can run and play with the other Animals. Gidget also benefits tremendously from Christine's Massage Therapy. She now is running in the pasture and we are beginning to see a slight whisper of Braying from her. She is settling in nicely to the Ranch.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
Rudy was found in a pasture eating rotten vegetables. He had a sun burnt nose. Which is why he was given the name Rudolph! I took him home and put sunscreen on his nose and he was given grain for the first time, Fresh vegetables, clean water and hay. Today Rudy is a healthy, happy and well adjusted Miniature Donkey here at Sedora's Ranch and Rescue for over 4 years now.
Sayen is a very rare and unusual breed. She came to us from an Alabama Ranch, that was over stocked with miniature horses. Sayen is a Medicine Hat Miniature Horse. Which is rare but what makes her even more rare is her two crystal blue eyes.
Medicine Hat horses with markings on their head resembling a Hat, were considered to be in some Native American cultures most valued, and those individuals with one or two blue eyes were even more rare and highly esteemed. These horses with these markings were said to believed to have super natural powers. Her name was chosen by Sedora and Mommy (Christine). They picked her name according to the Native American Baby names since Sayen was only six months old when they got her.
Sayen means "Lovable" and Kachina means "Dancing Spirit". Sedora being so Lovable and Christine being a World Renowned Retired Ballet Dancer, Sayen's name is a pefect fit.
“Lucky” our newest member was rescued from the humane society at 4 years old... has lived a healthy and happy life with his new owners for an additional 14years... One of the owners died in September 2018 it was too hard for the other owner to care for herself using a walker to get around...let alone try and take care of an 18 year old dog whose blind and has Cushing’s Disease.. the only option for the 80-year-old was to put Lucky down... heartbroken because she didn’t know what else to do... We decided to take him in and let him live the rest of whatever little life he still has here at Sedora’s Ranch &Rescue ... on Valentine’s Day Lucky got to be with his beloved owner once more for a few days ....a heartbreaking reunion...and we were so blessed to see this reunion. Lucky suits this little trooper name well.
Since the time Sedora could walk, her first animal she ever owned was a Miniature Palomino named Cici. Sedora is a true lover of all animals and is proud to love on and rescue as many animals as is possible. She would save them all if possible. She has an amazing heart to help others with her animals by demonstrating how animals who she has rescued can be therapeutic to those in need of some love. She is a Black Belt in Taekwondo and a well accomplished Western Horse Rider and Equestrian Reigning among her many talents. She has won many 1st Place Blue Ribbons at Interscholastic Equestrian Association Western Shows. Sedora and her Mom Christine rescued a feral cat named Sasha who was wild in the backyard as they fed her she became docile and eventually won the hearts of both Christine and Sedora and became a permanent member of the family and started the itch for both of these amazing Ladies to start a Rescue Ranch.
