What We Do

Rescue Ranch promotes and provides humane education programs focused on ending pet overpopulation and enhancing the human-animal bond, along with respect for agriculture, the environment, and conservation.

Our unique 87-acre facility is home to more than 80 rescued critters including, but not limited to birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards, steer, pigs, goats and miniature horses. Each animal has been permanently adopted into our humane education program where they meet countless children of all ages through our programs, tours, and fundraising events.

Currently, Rescue Ranch offers school, Scout and camp programs along with birthday parties and special events. Our Memorial Garden dedication and blessing took place September 22, 2016 and future plans include nature hiking and walking trails, an adoption and boarding center, a 24-hour emergency veterinarian clinic with an extern program, a therapeutic riding program, and horseback riding trails.

There exists a definite need to provide children hands on experiences with animals and nature to help in the development of well-rounded and compassionate individuals. Rescue Ranch is a perfect place to do this!

Thank you for supporting Rescue Ranch.
