“I did not ever plan on becoming a horse rescue!”

But God had a different idea! In 2007 when 23 horses were abandoned at the Ranch and surrendered to the State of California Save the Animals Today, 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit Horse and Farm Animal Rescue, was born. “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!”

Your tax deductible contributions are needed to provide a retirement and respectable end of life experience for these horses, most of who have out lived their usefulness as riding and breeding horses but are still healthy and needing care and affection. We use 14 bags (700 pounds) of feed daily. Several horses are available for adoption and/or sponsorship!
