Pattie Roberts is a familiar face around Southwest Riverside County having spent years promoting good causes with local radio station KFROG and then with her own agency, MarketingWithACause.com.
Through the years she has served on various Board of Directors including the (old) Sun City/Menifee Chamber of Commerce and Therapeutic Handicap-able Equestrian Center in Hemet. She has worked tirelessly to promote organizations such as Exceed, work programs for Adults with Disabilities, Animal Friends of the Valley, the Memory Walk for Alzheimer's awareness, she supports four school district's Student of the Month programs and many others good causes. She is also the 2011 Murrieta Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the year.
In 2007 Pattie retired from advertising to pursue her lifelong passion for horses. She developed The Dudette Ranch concept, a local take on the vacation destination Dude Ranch. The program was structured to allow a limited membership access to this private facility, the horses and use of the equipment for a monthly fee. Whether you want to escape from reality for several hours, recapture your youth, increase your stamina, lose weight, make new friends or aspire to be a serious Equestrian competitor, the Dudette Ranch program was designed for the experienced rider to be like owning a horse...just less expensive.
When 23 horse were abandoned at the Farm that same year, the Dudette Ranch concept was unceremoniously altered and became a horse rescue program. "The State doesn't have an adoption program for horses like it does for dogs and cats so these horses would have been euthanized," says Pattie. "It was not in my business plan to become a Rescue Ranch, however, after calling 35 organizations from Arizona to Washington and finding them all full.....I had no choice! After years of serving the Non Profit community," says Pattie "ZAP!! now I am one!"
This is a non profit organization that depends on your donations to make sure these horses, who have out lived their "useful" life's, will have a respectable retirement and end of life experience here. Your sponsorship may be the only thing between an abandoned horse and the killers!
