Mission: Strengthening the emotional connection between animals and their people, to help more of both live happier, and healthier, longer, while eliminating the need for animal shelters, in the first place.
Did you know that the USDA estimates that about 120,000 horses were exported to Mexico and Canada last year for slaughter, with their meet exported to Europe and Japan for human consumption?
The vision of the Resqranch started as a way to educate more people about the need for homes for ex-racing horses, and has developed into so much more. The Prince of Flame Fund, a Colorado registered Charity, was created in honor of one of our rescued horses. Flame, was donated to us in August of 2012.
Our mission is to educate, inform, and inspire, through the rescue’s in our care. We are currently in the process of creating a “Train-The-Trainer” program, and continuing our wildly successful HORSES 101! for children and adults into the fall. Stay tuned or contact us for more information!
How can I help? It costs about $300 a month to provide feed, general care, and hoof maintenance for one rescued large animal. You can:
- Sponsor an animal. Even a small monthly contribution, such as $25, goes a long way to help defray the coasts of ongoing care.
- Give the largest donation you can afford.
- Volunteer at the ranch. We need everything from grant writers to help building fencing.
- Take a class at the ranch, on-line, or at a nearby clinic. See our website for the most up to date information http://www.resqranch.org
Received inspiration, education, free help, or advice from DrQ? The biggest “Thank You” we can receive is a donation to our cause.
